    Ah! Cheers, yeah that makes sense

    Oh, even better! I’ll check that out. I swear knowing that it’s real people you’re racing makes it super stressful. Maybe this will help! :D

    Only in the pre-race screen. During the race, the triangle makes my car go in reverse. Maybe you can change it in the controller option settings.

    Is it possible to get in the same daily race lobbies with friends? Or a friend even. I like the daily races, would be good to have someone else I know on the track in the same races.

    As long as you all are on the same region, yes, it's possible. I think you also need to be on a similar SR as well.

    Well, as predicted, I'm slow around Yamagiwa. I chose the Aston for MaxComfort and put in three sloppy laps whilst queuing, the best being a 1.37.497. Dived into the race at P10, about where I expected, on a nice mixed grid but obviously with a fair few Supras, and a couple of Z4s, I can only presume because of Super GT as I don't think I've ever seen one raced before now.

    I didn't expect much from this one, I only hoped to get around clean, but the first lap was absolute chaos, and after being propelled to 3rd by way of not crashing, I battled a Supra, an Alfa, and an FT-1 for positions 2-5 the whole rest of the way... Lots of flashes in my mirror as they clearly thought they had a right to pass because of my slower pace, but I did my best making the Aston very wide and thankfully, the Alfa that did pass me for 3rd did so cleanly.

    Beautiful result - up 600DR to the tippy top of C, and SR back to max thanks to the clean race. Race B maybe not so bad after all, only took me all week to find it...

    ...forgot to save replay as usual.

    If you guys thought that this week's C race and the Nordchleife race with the Swift were snooze-fests, you should have seen today's Supra race. Short race (5 laps), no-stopper, which means the cars are slower, all created an incredibly dull race. It felt like a bedtime story: it made me want to fall asleep.

    Sounded so plausible that I was already loading the samba bus on the livery editor.

    Lightning showed that on Twitter. Holy heck, that is incredible.

    One of my friends and I fuel burned from the very start of Quali, so we were kinda just left alone.

    Tried the M3. Ran a time within 0.07 of my time with the jag, so there's bugger all in it for me anyway. It's faster on the straight but understeers more through the esses. I do find it more skittish over the curbs so as a race car i'd be a bit nervous.

    Here's a pretty good race with the Jag, the penalty on lap one was infuriating and I lost my rhythm, running slow laps and allowing P2 into the race.

    You can see on laps 1 and 4 the time gained when you get the chicane right.

    There’s a fast way around a corner and there’s a stylish way. That seemed to be a nice combination of both :)

    Strange races yesterday, ran 3 race B, ran off in two because I got distracted by people in my living room. But still got DR and SR up...

    Back to the daily races after weeks.

    Went for a few Race B and it was filled with Japanese players... Should it be a blessing or a curse I don't know. Half of them were wrecking each other like a demolition derby on the track.

    Finished mostly at the back because of my struggle with Gr.3 cars. I took some time off daily races to better learn Gr.3 and Gr.4 cars without TC.

    On the unfortunate experience. I just find some players being really cancerous and deliberately causing a collision so you'd end up with a time penalty. But that's all as it is, DR dropped SR dropped to A.

    I think at this rate I might just quit daily races with those idiots that don't look out for one another. The lobby has much tame players than them. Perhaps the minimum I'd do is to post my competitive times and let the rest unfold itself into history...

    Think people have definitely got more aggressive because it's so hard to overtake, even if you're significantly faster. Had some cracking races there though when it's been clean and there's a certain satisfaction to be had when you make a good, hard but fair overtake

    This wasn't a save. This is just the way I drive this chicane.

    @watto79 I can agree with you on race C getting nasty. Had avoided daily races for several days, had another go at C tonight, started 7th, ended up 5th after some spins and random bits on lap 1. From there it was hold my pace and get smashed off the racing line by impatient drivers. Nothing penalty worthy by PD standards, but constant pushing into corners to upset the car and lots of 'love taps' to get them past me. Including one muppet who went 3 wide heading into turn 1. I was the meat in the sandwich and backed out, guy outside lost it, guy who went on the inside lost it, I kept the spot until they nudged me wide with a pretty solid line at the hairpin. Still annoyed at the general shoving and barging but managed to nurse my DR up slightly so I guess it is still a win after all the loss. I still think that race is too long for cars that crippled on acceleration.
