Your question intrigued me, so I thought I'd test some things this morning before heading off to the office.

I did a couple of custom 10 minute races at COTA and customized the weather - which I've never really done in the past.

I enabled Dynamic Weather, set the variability to 33% and enabled Random Weather.

Result: the race started in the sun and finished overcast. Seeing the weather change, I then set the variability to 75% to find out if I'd get even more change.

Result: the race started sunny and ended sunny and I didn't really see much change.

Granted, this was only a small sample based on having a few extra minutes to spare. I'll have to try longer races at some point, along with playing with more settings.

I'm glad somebody else is on the project. I cannot exaggerate how many hours I've spent researching and still can't find the answer.

If you make the cloud cover slider 60% or more you will get rain but I don't want to start the race in rain.


I want to start the race with nice weather and then have it rain which forces everybody to pit for new tires and then have the race end in nice weather, hopefully to force everyone to pit to get slicks again. When I say everyone I'm referring to the AI because I usually only play offline.

I did try a high variability number without touching the cloud cover or precipitation. The race started dry and within half a lap to 3/4 of a lap it started raining.

I'll keep trying to figure out how to make this happen.

If I get some time tonight I'll have a go at trying to fathom the weather options. I'm sure we can crack it between us. On a similar line I was doing a 1 hour race in a championship with the AI last night at the Paul Ricard track ( I hate that track) , and the time of day was speeded up so started in afternoon and over the hour went into darkness. I must say the effect of the sun going down over the horizon was so impressive I was actually blown away by the graphics. This game has it's faults but when it comes together you can't beat it on console. Couldn't figure out the pitstops though as it kept telling me the stint was over and to come in and I'm sure I made more stops than necessary. (PS5)

Ok made some progress, if you don't set the cloud cover to at least 60% the precipitation value won't become available. I set custom, dynamic enabled, variability 70%, cloud cover 60% , random weather disabled. This gave me a forcast of 2 cloudy sessions and then rain in the final session. Had time multiplier on 4x in a 30 min race. Actual race started dry then a little rain then dry then finished with rain.

Good stuff, I'll have to give it a try over the weekend. I did a couple of 20 minute races at Silverstone last night (thinking I'd have a better chance of variable rain in the UK than in Texas, lol) but didn't push the Cloud slider as far as 60, so it was still mostly clear with a bit of overcast.

I’ve been playing with the setups, creating my own, testing against setups I found on YT, and I strongly recommend you try adjusting the setups. Not only because it can make you faster, aggressive setups have too much understeer, but especially because it makes the game much more enjoying. You’ll start driving with more purpose and attention to the details instead of the mindless driving games like GT7 has been teaching us for years.

At least this has been my experience and I just wanted to share and encourage those that are still driving default setups to try. Don’t go for an esports setup from a default one. They’re highly unstable and will deter you from giving it a real try and will not give the enjoyment of testing and adapting to your skill and driving style.

I search them on YouTube for the car and track combination I need. What car and track are you looking for?

I recommend doing your own. For that I’ve been using aris.drives 7 step setup guide and driver61 cheat sheet.

They've got some all star names to fill out these challenge fields. I lost a Ferrari Challenge race to Tom Blomqvist and Colin Braun was also in the field. Do the developers have to pay these drivers for using their names?

I have big problems with saved sessions. Everytime when I try to load one, the game goes crazy. Either my car is standing still completely, or the AI ist driving somewhere in the green, crashing into each other or into the barriers.
Anyone else experiencing such problems?
Edith: playing on the PS5
Is anyone else experiencing the same bug when loading a saved race?
Unfortunately the new patch has not fixed it.
Tried a race in Brands Hatch and after loading the save game, many of the AI racers crash into the barriers and lost their racing line completely.

Oddly this now makes me want to save a game mid-race. I usually only do short races (10-30 minutes), so have no reason to save.

Can someone point me in the direction of some good controller settings, please?

Hoping I can get my hands on a Thrustmaster TX base soon, but for now I'll be playing this with the controller.

I don't usually post wishes, but after watching GT World Challenge Australia races this weekend, I realized how much I'd love to drive Adelaide in a videogame. I think an Australian expansion pack would be great, and would love to see it, even though it's probably just a pipe dream.
