What is a Birthday Ticket?
----------------------------
A birthday ticket is a prize-car ticket that unlocks on your birthday.  
It will automatically alert you of the ticket when you log into Gran Turismo 5 
on your birthday.  You must have a PSN account and be logged into PSN for the 
ticket to unlock.  The ticket that unlocks is a car from the year of your 
birthday.  Example, if you were born in 1985, a car from 1985 will be on the 
ticket.

Do I HAVE to sign on to Gran Turismo on my Birthday for it to appear?
----------------------------------------------------------------------
Unfortunately, yes, or you miss it.

What happens if I was born on February 29th (leap-year)?
---------------------------------------------
As of right now, it looks like during the non-leap-year years, the birthday car 
is skipped.  That means if it's a year with only 28 days in February, and you 
were born on February 29th (the leap-year), the birthday car will not appear 
until the next leap-year.

I can't wait for my birthday, can I hurry it up?
------------------------------------------------
No, since this would require changing the birthdate on your PSN account; 
something that cannot be done.

Is there a way to cheat the system?
-----------------------------------
Yes, although controversial, there is a way to do it with multiple PSN 
accounts.  All you have to do is create an alternate PSN account with the 
year of your choice (must be 18 years old, so 1992 is the latest), and the 
birthday ticket will unlock on the day and month you choose.  There are a few 
other creative ways to "glitch" the birthday ticket system, but I will not 
post them here.

Can I trade/gift the tickets?
-----------------------------
Yes.
