The Room Screen

*The online services for “Gran Turismo 6” have been terminated. This function can no longer be used in-game.

In Open Lobby mode, select a room or create your own room to proceed to the Room screen. If the room is an Open Lobby room, the band across the top of the screen is blue. If the room is a club room, this band is red, and the club's name and profile picture are displayed at the very top of the screen. If the club room is a public room, a "+Favourites" icon is displayed at the bottom-right of the screen for players who are not members of the club.

The following information and options are displayed on the Room screen:

Race Status
Current room status. The bright blue part indicates the status of the race that is currently taking place. "P" indicates practice, "Q" indicates qualifying, and "R" indicates that the race itself is currently taking place. "T" indicates a Time Trial, "D" indicates a Drift Trial and "E" indicates an Endurance Race. The Q is not displayed in rooms whose races do not have qualifying. The number displayed under the Q, T, or D indicates the time limit in minutes. The number displayed under the R indicates the number of laps in the race itself.
