    All about trust really mate. Plus, if you see the same person beating everyone every week then questions will probably be asked. Photographic proof would be ideal, obviously in spoiler tags.

    yep I reckon so as well, what would be the penalty? How about collective neg rep or getting a bent tsr mod to ban them
    (Would have posted earlier but couldn't get on the forums before work)

    Assuming some form of leader board is formed consisting of how many times people have won, my suggestion would be anyone found guilty of always getting a faster lap time without proof could be stricken and/or disqualified from participating in the future.

    Of course hopefully we wont need to resort to such a measure, but the internet does have a habit of making people act like dicks.

    I'm quite disappointed that the times in game aren't realistic to the times in Top Gear. Lap times are much faster in game.

    Anyway, here's my first submission:

    1:30.507

    Proof
    I don't usually drive in this view, it's just to prove I was driving in the Mini.


    I haven't put in many laps so I expect this time to be beaten pretty easily! Just for reference I'm using a wheel + manual transmission.
    I shall reply with a lap in the morning; just finished work and want to go to bed. Though, I may wait as by tomorrow afternoon I will have my wheel.

    Really didn't enjoy driving the mini, felt like a tank and really sluggish. I did get a 1.29:8 but invalidated my lap apparently, of the about 9 laps only 4 weren't invalidated.

    I'm not expecting to get much better than 1.30:857 though I may try again later.

    Oh and I do everything that I consider "competitive" automatic transmission with a controller. Not got a steering wheel atm for my PS3 though.

    I honestly liked driving the Mini. If you're going from a McLaren F1 to the Cooper, then yeah, it'll feel very heavy but overall it's a fairly decent car. In the cheaper cars, you'll never find one with immense handling, because they just aren't built like that.

    I'll put those times in the OP in a sec.

    Well I wasn't comparing it to the likes of my chrome line murcielago/m3 but the low end cars I have got (even if fairly upgraded now) were much nicer to drive than the Mini.

    I assume we are only using valid lap times in game (blue indicating fastest lap), as you hit follow through it is quite easy to invalidate your lap even if you are still following the course (that caused me to invalidate my 1.30:282).

    World circuits. You might need to complete intermediate too then. I can't quite remember.

    What's wrong with the 500? It corners like a beast!

    On one of the rally tracks it can't get up one of the hills iirc...we had to use other cars to push it :mmm:

    Don't plan to lose, it'll kill this competition! You're only a second behind my time.

    Oh man I wanna buy a PS3 to take part in this

    Btw one thing, you guys are worried about one person coming on top every week, this seems inevitable as one person is going to be the best driver at the end of the day. Also, photos can't be used to show that you haven't put on tyres and a turbo But i think people will be trustworthy, it's a rather pathetic thing to cheat at

    I got rather annoyed at having thought I had beaten your time on my 9th lap to discover I hadn't, then things just got better and better.

    Here's my entry: 1:30.124
