Gran Turismo 5 Gears Up for Final Online Event
GT5 fans can look forward to a final farewell to the game's online services on May 30th...

The Gran Turismo 5 community may not have been too happy about Sony's decision to pull the plug on the game's online servers, but they'll have one final chance to show the world what they're made of on May 30th - the day before the servers go dark.

The event will see two tracks take the focus, as players will aim to post their best lap times on both the Top Gear Test Track using the 2011 Mazda Roadster TC and the 24 hour Nurburgring in a Nissan GT-R N24 Schulze Motorsport. Doing so will bring some pretty sweet freebies, as players will be rewarded with the 2009 Abarth Grande Punto, 20089 Nissan Fairlady Z (Z34), 2011 Renault Sport Megane R.S. Trophy, 2012 Tesla Motors Model S Signature Performance and 2012 Subaru S206 NBR Challenge pack - but there's a catch...

Since the servers are going offline, killing any online functionality for the game, players will need to log into Gran Turismo 6 between the 2nd and 29th of June to get their rewards. There's a definite argument that this is simply a way for Sony to attempt to cash in and increase sales of GT5's successor, but given how much we loved GT6, it's a move we thoroughly recommend all race fans make sooner rather than later!
