Hey! You. Yeah, you. The one who thinks you can cheat and get away with it… Okay, you got away with it but you won't get away with it again .
The Gran Turismo Driving Academy is supposed to be all about precision driving, but we've been hearing reports of cheaters in Round 2 of the US GT Academy. Participants have complained about cheaters cutting corners and doing a bit of "wall-banging" on the Madrid and Rome courses. But instead of trying to figure out who did what and when, SCEA has decided to simply cancel Round 2 . Everyone involved will just move on to Round 3, which has been delayed; it was supposed to start on February 14 but we're awaiting the next GT5 update. This update will "introduce more sophisticated corner-cutting and wall-banging detection mechanisms to prevent this type of inappropriate driving." It's probably the best course of action at this point.
In our estimation, Madrid should never have been used, anyway; that thing is ridiculous and not really one of our favorites. Let's take a turn on Nurburgring…won't really have to worry about "wall-banging" or cutting corners there; only fine driving will produce good times.
