Views From The Los by slimsy1901

Standing tall, above the world and surveying your domain is where any self-respecting, industrious entrepreneur should be. Taking in a rich sunset landscape as the new luxury Volatus flies alongside, slimsy1901's view from the top sure looks nice.


Don't Miss a Chance!! by Nightrain-G-

Like a scene straight out of a Vinewood blockbuster, Nightrain-G-'s action shot neatly showcases cinematic explosions, highway mayhem and some of the new heavyweight vehicles - there's the Cargobob seizing an opportunity, a MTL Brickade riding passenger and a Savage in hot pursuit.


She Knows What She Wants by maks55amg

They say money talks and it doesn't speak clearer than in this cleverly framed scene from maks55amg. Hard-earned, cold cash makes for soft carpeting, as a pair of killer heels take their steps along the corporate criminal ladder.


ピルボックス・ヒル by K-R-S-W

The Chrome Style Crew pose for a group photo between serious company talks in the boardroom of a swanky Executive Suite. With weapons and Special Cargo decorating the Table Map and the sharp matching suits and shades, there's no denying this Crew means business.


The Office View by Venom81ED

For those hankering after a taste of the good life, Venom81ED's shot of 'The Office View' presents all that an Executive Suite (and lifestyle) has to offer. From the Boardroom Table Map to neat stacks of Special Cargo ready to be shifted and the glorious skyscraper views afforded to those with the time to stop and admire them... 

Other Honorable Mentions...

  • Partnership by maks55amg - For smooth and successful business to be done, smart CEOs know to keep their friends close and their business associates even closer...
  • Escape the Maze by up-daz - Going for a spin in the new Enus Windsor Drop takes an explosive and dramatic turn, as up-daz breaks free of the Maze Bank in a fiery blaze of glory. 
  • Credit? No, No, No by --EVOLUT7ON-- - A busy CEO may have a number of issues to sort out, but cash flow isn't one of them in this entertaining snapshot.
  • Trading Places by DeAliveBeast - DeAliveBeast captures the thrilling moment status is changed and power reversed between Losers and Winners in the Trading Places Adversary Mode.
  • CEO Silhouette by MiroAWhite - Muted shades and colors make MiroAWhite's honorable mention all the more striking, as a CEO surveys the territory available to a diligent mogul beyond the glass window.

Congratulations to the Social Club Executive Merchandise Sweepstakes winners MitcHendrickSShooterMagooDerMort01LarsSchildhauer and Miffman, who each chalked up a bounty fit for a true criminal kingpin, including a GTAV Vinyl Soundtrack, an official GTAV Chrome Zippo, a GTAV Gold Bar USB, iFruit Mouse Pad, Epsilon Paper Weigh and more - enjoy!

GTA Online: Cunning Stunts Coming July 12th – Watch the New Trailer

Posted on July 7 2016, 8:57am | Author: R* Q | Filed Under: Games

Be daring, defy gravity and punch your fears straight in the mouth with Cunning Stunts, a visually surreal and over-the-top evolution to racing in GTA Online, coming Tuesday, July 12th.

Stunt Races happen on a massive scale, towering above the Los Santos skyline or soaring between the treacherous blades of RON Alternates Windmill Farm. Vehicles tear upside-down through loops and tubes, launch off ramps with extra propulsion from speed strips, diverge and merge across multiple pathways, and speed through gigantic rings of fire in death-defying new Races.

The jumps, gaps, terrain, and obstacles in each Race are tailored to match the attributes of specific vehicle classes, including new Super cars, Sports cars and Motorbikes. And of course, racing livery-clad vehicles deserve appropriately tatted and dressed drivers, sporting new motocross gear, racing suits, helmets and a host of other additions. Stay tuned to the Rockstar Newswire for full details when Cunning Stunts launches next Tuesday.

The Red Hook Crit Championship Series Continues in London on Saturday, July 9th

Posted on July 4 2016, 9:03am | Author: R* J | Filed Under:

Rockstar Games is proud to present the next stop in the 2016 Red Hook Crit Championship Series at London’s iconic Greenwich Peninsula this Saturday. 

After kicking off the series in Red Hook, Brooklyn this past April, athletes will continue their pursuit of championship glory with 32 laps on a technical 950 meter, 8 turn circuit just outside of the famed O2 Arena. Points are awarded to the top 25 finishers and for Primes (the first person across the start/finish at the end of the first lap and at the halfway point). 

Leading the scoreboard for the Women’s series is Aniara Elbusto, who took the win in Brooklyn and – now with five RHC first place finishes – has positioned herself as this year’s athlete to beat in the women’s field. Veteran rider Ash Duban, who bested Elbusto at Milano No.5 is close behind in 2nd with powerful athletes Vittoria Reati, Irene Usabiaga and Keiara McVitty rounding out the top five. Meanwhile, newcomer Dani King MBE – British track specialist, Olympic gold medalist and three time world champion – is racing her first Red Hook Crit in London this year and will no doubt put pressure on the series leaders and provide another layer of excitement for the home crowd.

USA’s Colin Strickland won the Brooklyn men’s race in commanding fashion with a 20+ second gap between himself and the field. Returning 2015 series champion and Italian rider Ivan Ravaioli seeks to defend his title from second place, but will have to deal with both Strickland and teammate Aldo Ino Ilesic in third place, who masterfully assisted in Strickland’s win. Rounding out the top five is RHC vet Daniele Callegarin and US Criterium Pro Daniel Holloway.

The Red Hook Crit continues to grow as not only one of the most exciting races in the world, but as a truly international event with 38 countries represented in London this weekend. The race is free for all spectators and we encourage everyone to check it out. For more race details visit redhookcrit.com or check them out on Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter.
