Think Hodgy should still to the two laps and post the times cause you never know which lap is going to be a bugger of a lap and he might go off??? :)

Also it would be good to have every one do it first to and post times.  Still got Lead magnet to go...... any one else out there? ShuQi

In my first ever race yesterday, I actually made it around the course a bunch of times without a crash once the race started and maintained 7 & 6th place.  I avoided the huge pileup at the start that Jinx was involved it.  Yet I was lapped several times by cars that went screaming by me.  I have no idea what my lap times were or if I even finished the race, the screen turned gray and Shuqi told me that it meant the race ended.  Whatever course we were on had this brutally tight S curve that I could have walked around faster then I drove it but oddly enough the area I had the most trouble was the much subtler S curve that came after that because the visual clues approaching it were much subtler.

Yeah, the race overview is lacking. Hodgy mentioned that there are some stats tracking plugins available, but I haven't tried those out yet.

 

About the curves:

it's just a matter of learning the track. Without the actual feedback, it's difficult to tell how fast you can go through them. Some look like you'd need to slow down, but due to being slightly slanted you can actually go through at full speed.

 

One thing you could try out is to join a game, go into the pits, click on that chat icon (bottom icon on left side of screen), and click on one of the other player names. This allows you to spectate them to see how fast they are going through the curves and at what points they are breaking and accelerating.
