Many of us have finished these races now so I thought that it would be a good idea to share our experiences. Personally I really enjoyed these races. The presentation, qualifying, amount of cars and race length made them feel like a more serious deal. I was really giving it my all and had some great battles, even though I ended up in rather bad positions at the end of them both. My Nations race: I was driving the TT Cup and I qualified at a 4th position. Everything was going rather smoothly until half way through the first lap, where I went wide and hit a wall. I instantly dropped to 18th position which felt devastating. I cursed for a couple of seconds but quickly pulled myself together and started chasing the cars ahead. We had some really good battles in a group of four that constantly traveled close to each other. I had a rough time with the Aston and Alfa but I managed pull through and created a gap between us. The TT Cup has some really good braking capabilities which is great for overtaking or getting ahead in tight corners. My Manufacturers race: I drove the Audi R8 LMS (the only one to do so) and I qualified last. I had never driven on Suzuka prior to this race, which at first made me think that I was gonna skip it. But then I remembered that you get points for these races and I really didn't want to miss out on them. So I did what I could and tried to learn the track in warm up and qualifying. Sadly it was not good enough to give me a favourable starting position. The race itself was quite rough and I went off the track a couple of times and had a really crazy spin mid-race. I managed to gain good speed in a lot of corners at the end which got me up to position 15. I also got lucky with a couple of cars that spun out at the end. Overall not the best race experience, but it was still very fun.
