    I heard as a rumour on FM3 that there was a photo mode glitch where you could get inside your car and take pictures of the interior. A few days ago, I discovered it was possible to do on FM4, but no one seemed to know how to do it (and the ones that did weren’t sharing!). This is like the unicorn of glitches.
    So last night I decided to try and find it. After searching alot of forums and sites, I found a couple of pics of interior shots on FM4 with a TINY bit of track in the background. Coincidentally, a random guy on another forum was doing the same thing and between us (HOURS later) we finally found how to do it. I have to give this guy most of the credit for confirming the track and finding the right spot for the glitch to work. I’ve spent the last few hours tweaking it and trying to find the easiest way to do it and have made this rough guide on how to do it yourselves. I still can’t get this to work first time everytime and this is just how I managed to do it..it may work other ways and if anyone finds ways on improving my method, please post below! Same goes for any questions.

    Track – Silverstone (Any version)
    Car – Any (As far as I know)

    First go to hot lap, choose your car (can be from garage) and select any version of Silverstone.
    You will need to go to the first corner on the track and head straight on to the corner where the yellow Agip sign and white tyre wall meet..

    Park in this position with the right rear of the car touching the yellow Agip sign..

    The gap between the rear of the car and the white tyre wall seems to be important, I had to keep adjusting this slightly to get the glitch to work..

    Next, go to photo mode and position the camera on the tyres behing the car like this..

    Now it gets a little fiddly. You will need to hold down the left trigger while slowly pushing forward on the right stick. It helps to look down at the tyres while doing this. What you are trying to do is get the camera to get stuck in the gap between the car and the tyres..

    Once in the gap you will need to play around with the left analogue stick to get it to glitch into the car. I found if I held left on the stick it would drag the camera through the Agip sign and under the map. If this happens, just move the camera back onto the map and start again. Sometimes the camera will suddenly jump to the left and out of the gap, but if done correctly you should get to a point where you push forward on the left stick and the camera will just start to move through the car. Keep pushing forward and you should be here..

    Final note: As I mentioned, the gap between the car and the white tyre wall behind seems to be important. It appears as though you need to make the gap JUST big enough to get the camera into.

    Have fun!

    Is it a glitch? My thinking a glitch is when you drive off the track at a certain point and end up at the finish line 5 laps ahead in a 6 lap race.

    Is it a glitch when you are getting cockpit photos? Why cockpit photos? The photos were obviously made for the game. I think they were meant to be found out. Why create cockpit photos if they weren't meant to be seen? Just for giggles?

    What I"d like to know is who first found out about it? Did he drive along every wall, on every track?

    It is a glitch because we are doing something that isnt allowed in the game.

    As for who found it first, i have no idea.

    Is it really a glitch? It's not like running along a railing and getting $555,000
    Then PD finds out and next thing you know we have an update to correct that.

    You guys were meant to find out..It's not a glitch. It's an Easter Egg. haha

    Since when does glitch mean cheat? A glitch is just something wrong with the game, allowing you to do things that you wouldnt necessarily be able to do in the first place.

    Never looked at it as an Easter Egg though, lol. Maybe I'm just in doubt.

    The "Alpine Ring" Signage on Bernise Alps is an Easter Egg, Controlling revs at the start of a race with manual w/ clutch is an Easter Egg, discovering the Warthog in Auto Vista is an Easter Egg. This requires too much effort to find and replicate, which puts it more along the lines of a glitch than a hidden bonus that the Dev's expect the gamer to stumble upon.

    I never meant it as a cheat, sorry if it came off that way. I look at it like the Easter Egg.

    This is how it went in development. Guys take photos of interiors. Management says "Why"
    The answer "We don't know, we did it for fun"
    Boss "HUH?"
    Boys "Actually we'll hide a spot in the game and someone will stumble on it and find photos of his car interior. Then there will a big discussion in FM4 forums.
    Boss "Brilliant"
