    Are Cadwell Park & Willow Springs used in any invitational events?
    I'm just curious, I don't see either of the two in the main career events.

    I just finished a GT4 season and was offered a Toyota GT-86 Rocket Bunny GT4 contract. I can't even see that car in free practice to try it out.

    It'll be part of the next DLC downloaded with the fixes in Patch 5.

    I've read report of the Toyota hybrid now participating in LMP so we could be in store for the Toyota and Mitsubishi Macau expansion pack.

    Toyota & Mitsubishi will be available later this month, I haven't heard anything about Macau though, I'd love to have that track in PCars.

    Agreed, I posted that in the track request thread in the official forums back in May.

    I got disqualified on the final lap of a 4 hour race on Le Mans last night :tup:. The career invitational event (In December :lol:). My own fault really, though I could argue some of the corner cuts were a bit harsh.

    I was gutted. I'll learn not to lose concentration after 3 hours next time!

    Ran the final 2 races of Superkart UK National and I hate how once a wheel is on the grass that wheel will not come off the grass, ever. Came in 3rd in the sprint and last in the main because of the damn grass, but still won the championship with 4/6 wins. Now onto the the championship and then I'll hopefully be able to move on to the Clio Cup or Formula Rookie.

    Good stuff! I was surprised at how much I enjoyed the superkarts. On a different account I've recently done my first season in the Rookies. In the first race I didn't like them at all, they felt super light, it felt like I was driving one of them insects that float on water. I couldn't understand why they were so tricky to drive. Then the next race came and I realised I'd had the "no FFB" bug in the first race. D'oh.

    I'm suprisingly fast in the superkarts considering how much I hated the standard ones. At Donington I was around 7 seconds ahead of 2nd by the end of the race! I've driven the Rookies a little in quick race and I quite like how they drive, although the AI wrecking me is what I fear will happen alot.

    My career has hit a wall. Started off great winning the Clio Cup and Ginetta G40s but season 3 in GT4 is beyond me due in part to the pit stop bug.

    I was already finding it tough trying to beat the Ginettas in the Vantage. I can win the sprints ok but for some reason I always lose two or three places in the pits in the main race. Combined with getting wrong tyres for the second half of some races, no way can I win the series.

    I'm going back to semi-retirement of Quick Race Weekends until they fix the tyre bug.

    Well after winning the GT5 Championship i decided to move onto the WEC series. I am really excited for my first race in this series. I never did muticlass racing on this game before. The car im using is the oreca 03 Nissan LMP2. Im the doing the AEC cup first. The AI is set to 95% and the race length is 67%. Im at the Glen and it's gonna be a 2hr race. I just gotta qualify and then it's on to the race. Looking forward to this. I just hope I don't have any problems.

    How quick is the Oreca compared to its class? I've heard that it should be one of the slower LMP2's??!!

    Yea it is actually. The car was undrivable with the default setup. So i look for a setup on the pcars setup database thing and now its driving very well. Even though it's the slowest LMP2 car in the game i stil enjoy driving it.

    This game makes me want to cry,
    cars drive on a knife edge & nothing I do with the setup seems to make it easier.

    Here are some attempts at a lap of Oulton just for fun.

    I love the Formula Rookie events, actually restarted them again last night.

    Yes the cars can be a bit tricky, however keep in mind that they weight almost nothing, have no aero at all and on cold tyres that makes them a handful.

    However they can be driven and driven quickly, the trick is to drive to the car not to try and tune them to suit a different style (as that will never work).

    You have to get all of your braking done in a straight line, and once you turn into a corner you have to commit to it, try and adjust the throttle too much and you will most likely unbalance the car and spin. Only accelerate once you have apexed and are almost (if not completely) straight.

    Once you get used to that you will find them quite straight forward to drive and can start to add in some gentle trail braking, but keep in mind its always going to be tricky in something like this.

    I've driven a few older Formula Ford cars (on which these are based) and its one of the cars that PC recreates well in terms of how you have to drive the cars.

    I would also recommend upping the number of laps, as you have found out 'hero' dives past half the pack don't end well in these (they don't like contact), so a longer race will give more time to pass a few at a time.

    Nice crash however, remind me of mine in an FR, that was at Watkins Glen.



    It is bloody annoying however that the AI has indestructible cars! My crash should have resulted in at least two or three of the AI cars being out as well.

    Just letting you know there is a thread about "career " a couple post above yours. You might want to use that one and ask a mod to close this one. Mods dont like duplicates. Just trying to help.

    There's 2 Kart One championships & 2 Super Kart championships, once you've won the 2 Super Kart championships there should contracts available in Formula Rookie & Renault Clio Cup.

    Laugh at me just getting into the game and having a blast. Wasn't fussy on the Clios but the historic Escort and the Ginetta G40 Junior or whatever it is has been a fun drive
