    They might as well turn damage and tyre wear off also as you’re not gonna crash with all those nice assists on :lol:

    Are they looking for the fastest driver , or the fastest driver that likes running assists 24/7 ? Vote now .
    I’ll pass on this .

      It’s a competition held mainly to promote the game and the Electronic Sports League, not find the next Ayrton Senna.

    Driving aids allowed?! Real professional there, ESL.

    Also, SMS, fix your game and stop working on PCARS2 until it’s working.

      I’ll have to say that if SMS are already digging in their shovels to work almost fully on PC2, that’s really bad form. Unless a small team can squash those bugs in a month or two. I bought into RaceRoom and it’s a much more stable game than P CARS is currently, and it’s also making PC look much less essential.

      Step it up there, Simply Mad, you impressed me at the start.

      Do try to be informed. Every developer starts working on the next game pretty much as soon as the current one is out, the difference here is that SMS is open about it, something that should be lauded. They have a dedicated team of 40 staff working on the current game and have announced ongoing support and DLC for at least 2 years. What do you want? The whole team still working on the released game? Give your head a shake.

      Because PD/Sony is somehow responsible for choosing a country. Oh wait, no they aren’t.

      Another ignorant bash, correct information be damned.

    2. YZF

      @SZRT Ice global with ~15 countries? You better check out how many countries are there in the world…

      @RACECAR who is responsible for country list if not Sony (PD is part of Sony) ?
