Gran Turismo 5 reviewed by T3 readers at UK exclusive

 T3 readers were last night given the opportunity to try out the long awaited Gran Turismo 5 in 3D at the T3 VIP night in Selfridges’ London Oxford Street store; the first time consumers have had a free opportunity to sample the game in the UK.

Of all the T3 readers in attendance, 45 took to the racing seat to get behind the wheel of the most anticipated title in gaming history, the repeatedly delayed GT5. Making this exclusive opportunity all the more exciting, the gamer that set the fastest lap at the graphically perfect Top Gear Test Track in an Audi R8 would bag themselves a copy of the game when launched and a Logitech Driving Force GT Wheel and Pedal set as used on the night in the full 3D racing rig.

Taking top honours in this highly competitive and action packed competition was Maziar Shahsafdari, pictured with T3's Kieran Alger and Luke Peters, whose early lap of 1 minute 17.433 seconds narrowly secured him the fastest lap of the famous Top Gear facility.

“I must express my considerable gratitude towards the wonderful T3 staff for such a well-run and good-natured event, as well as the Selfridges staff” Maz wrote on the Gran Turismo forum GTPlanet following his victory.

Maz will receive his copy of GT5 courtesy of ShopTo.net when the game is finally released at a yet undisclosed date expected ahead of the festive period.

If you were unable to make the T3 reader event, fret not, the full Gran Turismo 5 racing setup will remain in the Selfridges store until next Friday, October 29th. To win yourself a copy of Gran Turismo 5 head on over to the T3 competition pages where ShopTo.net is offering you the chance to win one of five copies with further details on how to nab yourself an extreme driving day from the online retailer.

Stay tuned to T3.com and the T3 Twitter and Facebook feeds for a full picture roundup of the T3 VIP Reader Night from Selfridges’ London Oxford Street store.
