    Attended the GT Nashville taping today. (no spoilers)

    The museum I work for was invited to bring out a few cars to display at the Grand Tour taping in Nashville.

    GT4/PS2 questions

    I've seen people post their GT4 videos on YouTube and was wondering: How did they do that? Does anyone know how to retrieve the videos from the PS2 game card? Also, can the card be edited? I've seen GT4 game cards offered on ebay with all the cars unlocked. How is that done?

    Yet another track weekend at the Nashville Super Speedway. This time it was a fundraiser for the Minnie Pearl Cancer Foundation, and it was unusual in that it was both cars and bikes.

    The Prius vs. M3 "race"

    In case anyone saw the "race" and thought to themselves, "Yeah, but nobody drives a Prius like that!" Well, that's what I thought too, because I never see anyone in my city drive one in that manner. But last week I was on vacation (holiday, for the Brits) in the Washington D.C. area. As you can...
