    Hi guys,
    I stumbled upon your website mainly through a bit of interaction with Rams1de a week or so ago on the GT6 forum.
    I'm really keen to join you guys for a race or two, there aren't so many casual races planned in the near future, so was wondering if I could befriend you on PSN and perhaps have an ad-hoc race or two if our playing times coincide.

    My PSN is the same as my profile name: ROOKY_BALBOA, please feel free to add me!

    Hi Rooky, welcome to Grumpydom!!
    Really pleased to see you have got stuck in straight away with your qualifyer time and looking to join in some casual racing.

    There is quite a lot of testing going on for the GT300 championship, which usually involes a few races per night depending on how many are in the room.

    Hopefully we'll try to get back on track soon with some casual nights like Carrie has organised tonight.

    Hope to see you on track soon, until then keep it grumpy!!

    Hi Rooky. Sorry you missed us. There seems to be an ongoing problem with not being able to see friends rooms online.

    Sometimes when that happens you can see the rooms after creating your own and then exiting. Bizarre.

    The casual racing has taken a bit of a hit lately and the members are spending more time practising for the official races on a Sunday.

    There's only two races left in the current series before @Fido996 hour long endurance series at La Sarthe. Have a look at the cars, get them tuned up (try the Zonda C12 for A Class) and if you feel confident, enter the series here

    Hi Rooky, welcome to GBRC.

    Once my GT300 series is over, I'll be running some Casual Races on Thursdays, so will keep you posted.

    Please send me an Friends Request

    Hi Rooky, and welcome to GBRC.

    Sent you a Friend Request last night. I should be on a little later if you fancy a blast round. My final practice for this Sunday's race.

    Thanks Fido.

    It's a bit tricky getting game time for me on a Friday but I'll try my best.

    What sort of time are you thinking of being on?

    Thanks guys, looking forward to meeting up with you all for a casual race sometime soon.

    I've not managed to get online much recently as I've had family over to stay.

    Is there an easy way of seeing where friends are racing if they aren't actually hosting? There's the 'see only friend's rooms' check box in the lobby, but is there a way of locating rooms where PSN friends are racing as well as this?

    I think you can see friends in rooms even if they are not hosting, so long as the friends rooms only box is ticked.

    Most of the members don't join odd open lobbies, They make either a private friends rooms only which you'll be able to see who is in there.

    Next if a member opens a lounge in open lobby the heading will more than likely be one of GBRC - XXXXXXX
    Or GTarena - XXXXXXX here the same thing look in the list for who is in the room.

    Last is room names other than above, whereby you would have to look at the hosts name, see if they are on your friends list.

    I think it's Square button you push for this on your controller or wheel, but not sure.
