BEYOND THE APEX

A digital version of “Beyond The Apex”, a special booklet that was included in the limited-edition version of Gran Turismo 6. The basics of automotive engineering, physics, mechanics and tuning are introduced with rich visual imagery. Towards the end of the book is a course reference guide for Gran Turismo 6 that also serves as a tour guide of the world.



CAR DATABASE

More than 1200 cars included in Gran Turismo 6 have been organized into a virtual database encyclopedia of cars. Highly-detailed descriptions and specifications of the cars can be viewed together with beautiful imagery. Because they are organized in an easy-to-use list, the cars can be searched or sorted by name, year model, and other specs.

IOS only?? I have a SONY Xperia Z tablet (Android BTW). So an official app for a PS4 exclusive title, won't be of use on a Sony tablet? Will this be the same for the promised GPS feature for Track Builder that still isn't released yet? (yes, I know Kaz said he's Beta testing).

WOW!, Bring on Project CARS!

TP needs some updating. It is not very intuitive for new users. Instructions are hard to follow at times. Support response is in need of someone's dedication. Having individual paints is a real attraction within iRacing. This needs to be done better or replaced! ​Interesting that without member support there would be no answers or help. It's a shame, the program is so popular not to have good management.

Sean,
I am all signed up and ready to race in the Carrera Cup, except for one thing.  How do I obtain Road America?  I do not have it in AC as one of my tracks.  Where is it?
