    There's nothing I hate car or track wise as I usually deal with it and learn to improve with the combo I use but I absolutely HATE the karts. Then again I hate karts in every game that includes karts. Except maybe MarioKart.

    The ginetta g40, I just can't tell when I'm losing grip. It's like grip, grip, loads of grip, some more grip, oh no you've spun. and it's slow and boring!

    AMG Mercedes A45 - it's just horrid.....

    Most of the cars are fun in their own right, some are very hard to drive and seem to make this fact a little too apparent.

    That free car though is a massive failure imo - will casual observers bother downloading the future free cars as abundantly given the first one is both unheard of and undriveable ?

    I can't wrap my head around why Silverstone isn't revered.... Maggots/Becketts/Stowe/Copse - iconic and fantastic turns. I've been many times and it's just as fun to watch real people throwing it into them also :-D

    So, in summary - the ones I don't like - a45; escort; Lykan. Argh! Like all the tracks in their own right, I think.

    looks like a big kart track to me lol. although probably a good place to test steering sensitivity because it's one corner after another :p

    It's just my home track and has become a classic in the DTM Calendar. Very hard to get every corner right, but so rewarding.

    McLaren F1. Couldn't drive it worth a salt. Had a might hard time at Brands Hatch with the Clio. That was very aggravating. Not liking Zolder at the moment. Having a hard time driving the M1 Procar on it

    Not to mention my crashes through an invisible barrier everytime I exit my garage at Zolder. Everytime. Car is damaged even before heading down pitlane.

    Me either. I don't understand, all the F1 drivers praise it as one of the great drivers circuits but I've never been a fan in real life or in racing games.

    I'm not a huge fan of Brands Hatch either, its a good challenge but I never find myself really enjoying racing there...

    Glencairn, Cadwell Park and Azure are my three most hated circuits. The Ginetta G55 GT4 has to be my most hated car. It just feels too heavy and unresponsive.

    This has already been fixed on PC. Will be part of the first console patches.

    Has there been a PC patch today? I hadn't noticed an update yet and this has happened to me since launch day (in the M1 Procar champs).

    Nope, the fix was part of the patch making the game version 1.3 (from May 13th). Make sure your game is up to date.

    I'm the opposite I really like the sweeping turns and hitting the apex's it's a great track in the right car.

    Snetterton in the Clio. I don't know what it is, be it controller or car-related issue, but the Clio keeps losing rear grip entering the left turn towards the end of Segment 2.

    The fast sweeper (turn 4?)? I found it best to trail brake and sacrifice that corner to set yourself up for the tight right hander that follows.

    With regards to the brakes....you can only setup yourself to brake earlier and be smooth all the time. The F1 is a joy to drive and very fast if driven properly.

    Yeah its certainly very powerful...but when braking feels like youre on ice! Just thought there maybe a brake setting you can adjust..

    Glencairn. It's the worst kart track and it's also the very first track in career mode if you start in tier 8. Not the best way to start your career!

    I agree that Cadwell Park is a strange inclusion as well. It's too narrow to host modern top level car racing, so it's primarily a bike track now.

    EDIT - It actually hosts the British Superkart grand prix. Funny how the in-game championship doesn't use Cadwell Park :lol:

    Probably because 95% of all people who bought pcars would immediately run out of talent with those insane things at Cadwell! :D

    For those with issues with the Clio, try to lower rear tire pressures a bit and keep a bit of throttle while braking for turn, to settle the rear end.

    I've been turning down the brake pressures in a few cars recently, stops the locking up as I like to brake late and floor my pedal a bit. not sure how much it'll help the F1 though from what I hear.
