So yeah long story short: i see a potential 47:5x.xx, which is extremely hard time to make as you basically need to nail every single license perfectly without making any kind of menuing mistakes (selecting wrong license or replay means dead run with no turning back), even the smallest hesitation while returning to the license menu and navigating it can compromise the run, but i swear i'm becoming obsessed with it.
I have a lot of experience in different Gran Turismo games, especially from Gran Turismo Sport onward, but it has been basically one week since i've started practicing for this kind of challenge in Gran Turismo 2, being basically new in the speedrunning community. However, day after day i started to take more and more confidence with the game and licenses (several fails among which a 48:03 throwed on the very last but one corner of S-10 ☠️), i felt more consistent in many different tests, but i still see a lot of improvement, something that i might be able to achieve or probably not....maybe someone could do it before me. Afterall there are a lot of fast drivers out there, Cousin, FlyingDutchy Racing, and the god numbuh4WD who are way more experienced than me into this game, and i believe that all together, with a bit of healthy competition we can push this time under the 47 barrier.
I want to see this time materialise, being me or someone else. It's right there, it's possible! We can do it!
