Last night didn't hit the highs of the Spa race, but I felt it certainly demonstrated how good it is to have dynamic weather. The change in track behaviour from storm to light rain and back to storm was so apparent and really added to it. While Turn 10 may boast about their 3D puddles (x- y- and z-axes), I much prefer the three dimensions SMS have chosen for their weather (x- and y- axes plus time).

Just a pity that I got the disco. First time in PCars, so at least it's going better than FM5's multiplayer ever did. Now if only I could find a way to reduce the Bentley's prodigious tyre wear...

Was an interesting night. Thought the writing was on the wall with it all going quiet on chat and xbox party had failed my end and you disco'd......
Big shame the others cant play this or not have inclination to. Where the fck has Moon gone again???

I have FM6 (5.5 ) a big improvement over FM5 beta but finding ive spoilt by the 'motorsport' on pcars. Such a wasted moment in car racing in gaming.

I know what you mean. The biggest downside was that with only four of us racing we soon had field spread apart from us two. With me stopping for tyres, I was hoping that I'd have been closing quicker than I was to make the strategy pay off, but it didn't seem to be. Unfortunately, I'll never know if I could have made it work, but that's the beauty of having proper tyre wear in a racing game.

I for one am guilty of going awol, though tbh not just this game but gaming in general (due to real life issues that are now sorted) But also there hasn't been really any real effort to put up info about races, I thought this series finished about 2-3 weeks ago.

Hopefully there is another series and I hope to be more focused and involved because it sounds like guys have had fun

Like the sound of this. Currently doing a Ginetta G40 comp on PC around British Circuits and the racing is really close in those. British circuits are also excellent in these less powerful cars.

Sounds good, I think something low powered could work really well.

As an added thought on the British track theme, is it just me that thinks that Boa Ascent from the new pack has all sorts of similarities in character to Knockhill?

G40's would be cool, or the lower speed open wheelers

I had'nt bothered to be honest as i would go to the trouble of posting up a race thread and people either didnt sign in read the content about which track etc!! We had the same people each week anyway! After we had the negative people coming onto threads it did seem a little pointless for the above reasons. PLUS ive had weeks of DIY shite to deal with too!!

4.39 if memory serves, which gets you 3 Astons and a Merc plus the test track. Really fun, challenging tracks to drive (except Coyote Loop), although there are bugs with the big oval. But the biggest issue for a race series is that there aren't any pits on it - bit of an oversight that one.

Another great night once we got going. I know we've said it quite a few times now, but loving the changes in weather. Good racing too - great to be able to go a few corners side-by-side with Jamesy. It was reminscent of me and smokin at Spa, only this time I lost the place.

I lost nearly a whole lap by lap 3
Jumping start by putting car in gear without the clutch, novice really. Then on the drive through penalty, ai put me head on to the pit wall, costing me another 30 seconds.

Was otherwise a ridiculously hard race, seca in hammering rain makes the corkscrew interesting!!!

Had the AI going head on into the wall too. Guess I should have practiced pit entry as I was thinking the AI would slow it down like it does in Forza. Turns out it doesn't

As for the rain, about 30 seconds before the end of the warm-up, I had a crisis of confidence and moved the brake bias forward a point to increase the stability under braking. Got the setup changed with 4 seconds to spare, and it seemed a bad move when we started in the dry. But in the wet, it turned out to be a good move
