    Ha ha nice.

    Did anyone race the Ferrari? That time qualified me 4th, happy with that but in the race they were queuing up to pass me and finished about 15th...

    Absolutely no grip anywhere😀

    It was also a big lie. It take me about 30-40 odd laps though to be fair

    I beat the top (eg) Suzuka time by about 6 hundredths of a second tonight :). I need to do these a bit earlier in the day I think

    I did about 3 laps at Suzuka and one pretty poor race. Hopefully, something better tonight.

    500 DR points shy of 70,000. I think it's time to give the game a rest and solely concentrate on Top 24 Superstar races

    I had to quit a race today and that knocked me from SR S to SR B! Since then been impossible to improve. Just managed to go from 14th to 7th in Gr3 race without touching anybody. A complete miracle and finally my SR improved.
    From 45 to 46 ;_;

    Smashing the GR1 race today. Got a quali time of 56.75 which is putting me on pole so Ive won a couple and got my SR up from D to S.

    I do my best!

    Got into my first Nations Cup Top 24 Superstars race this weekend. Was pole for half of the session, but didn't get to set another time because I made a daft mistake and was held up. Not many others set their potential fastest laps either.
    So, I started 9th, got up to 7th on Lap 2. Then, the wonderful penalty system comes into play...
    Coming into last corner, guy that is 2 places ahead moves across in braking zone, then t-bones the next driver. So, whilst everyone is slow exiting last corner, I softly/barely hit guy in front with nowhere to go. I get a 6 second penalty which immediately starts rising every second. Guy who causes it all is given nothing. Race ruined. To make matters worse, the drivers in that battle finished in the top 4.
    Good experience I guess. Very close racing. The majority of the drivers in the race are actually super clean, albeit occasionally a little clumsy.

    I'm SR B at the moment so my races are like this. But I'm quite enjoying the challenge of avoiding everyone and waiting for them to take each other out so I can nip through. Went from 12th to 3rd at Interlagos last night doing this.

    The current FIA race system will likely stop at Test Season 20 (after next week). Kaz said the official championship will start in April.

    FIA races have been the most disappointing part of the game for me, inconvenient times, no progression and a crash fest compared to normal sport races. I thought it was a great idea, took part in 5 or so and then gave up. Id rather they just created a couple of additional sport mode slots.

    Nice! Yeah, I think I'm about 4000 shy of S :D - I'd probably be there had the game not crashed out on 10 odd occasions :rolleyes:

    I've eyed up the Top 24 Superstars but I don't think I'm there yet - not quite up to scratch. I only do dailies with tracks that I like and even then I still quite picky, the new penalty system can be so deflating...

    Will be interesting to see if PD make anymore changes to the SR algorithm before the official FIA season starts - surely they've got to do something?

    Nice new update. VR time trials, Tsukuba Circuit, 13 new cars and 3 new league events.

    Incidentally I think we must be at the point now where this is a serviceable single player game? This is probably going to turn into one of those games that warrants a second review.

    So can I do time trial qualifiers for the dailies in VR? Or just Arcade time trials?

    I haven't actually got it yet but am tempted since I found out it works on PC too.

    Had an issue with new update (1.15) regarding ghosting, lapped cars and penalties. Would like to hear some opinions on this. Whole discussion is here:

    @adstomko Interesting - it would appear this 1.15 update has broken more than it has fixed in Sport Mode? Let's see what tomorrow's update breaks? :rolleyes:

    @Beccosinho That seems to be the case.
    Ghosting doesn't always work. Another ideo in the same thread demonstrates this.
    Why on Earth they decided to change from permanent ghosting to 'ghosting depending on distance' is beyond me. Everyone was satisfied with the former system.
    Demoted me from 3rd to 5th in UK at the time.
    The Top 24 Superstars races this week do not depend on DR. The top 2 from each nation goes through depending on test season results, which has also caused a split within the community.
    For example: 2 can qualify from the UK, and 2 can qualify from San Marino...

    @adstomko That's a bit shite - I thought 24 Top Superstars was supposed to be a race of 24 of the best of the best regardless of nation :rolleyes:

    Why won't PD stop tinkering... From the looks of things these test seasons we keep running until they finally get it right.

    @Beccosinho They evidently make unnecessary tinkering. At least a small update is scheduled for the morning.

    The current top 4 of the Nations Cup are British, yet just 2 can qualify. Absurd.
    I am currently 3rd after winning at Tsukuba. However, the ghost glitch and blocked quali laps have lost me 500 points. Otherwise, I would be leading in Europe :(

    Daily Race B at the Nurburgring GP - Grid Start for the first time! Better put traction control on 1 to help with wheel spin off the line.

    Just done a race and it was carnage on the first corner but all the appropriate people got given time penalties ;)

    Loving the Grid start!
