Ass craps I went in a daily race today at Suzuka and I thought I'd try a coupel of different cars out for qualifying, but dumbly I entered using an alfa which I just couldn't keep pace with. I ended up qualifying 5th and finishing 11th, losing SR and breaking my clean-race streak too. Bah. Actually i hate racing with others on track, it's just annoying. I can't pass well (Suzuka is bad for that eh) and more often end up in the dirt trying to avoid slower drivers who mess up their own lines.
That's the flipside of real racing, really.


Don't worry, Suzuka is a prick to pass on!

WTF?!

 

That warm up practice helped me heaps (I took pole, fastest lap & won) & it was crazy fun - I had a spin & an off, yet still lapped everyone up to 13th & won by 10+ seconds.  I reckon we should throw the odd kart race around Brands Indy every now & then on Fridays.

Those karts were actually a load of fun I thought.
Until I punted off on lap 10/10 and copped a 10 second penalty.

Like the game, hate the players (except you guys lol)

Yah... hey the trophies for "91 GP wins", are they like actual series wins? Like if you were in Manufacturer's cup and Nations cup you could win each of those once a week at best?
That could take some time.

I'm guessing it's sport races, or possibly all races - it can't be championships, as 0.33% of all players have achieved this trophy (according to this link).  I think I have a grand total of 4 sport wins, so yeah... it's going to take me quite a while.

If it's simply sport races you could probably smash it out in a few days on the dailies. :D Now that I think about it though, if there's only 1 GP championsip series per year then Schumacher would have had to race for 91 years to get that so.. yeah.

Yup sport mode races. I saw a kiwi has got that trophy. Apparently sabotaging your own sr rating is a good way to get in easy lobbies and get a win but yeah no thanks.

 

I enjoyed the karts but I think we need to get a big group together with a grid start for optimal madness  :thumbsup:

That's my dream start ha! I've seen a few vids of this happening now but never experienced it. I wonder what it's like for the rest of the lobby and the winner is is the person who completes the laps fastest (obviously, but you know what I mean!)?

 

I actually thought the karts were a lot better than I expected and am super keen to race them in upcoming nights.

I wonder if that was what the guy was doing in the lobby where I posted that photo on the PS Message app. He was second fastest but threw his race from the very beginning. So odd but that could explain it. He was an Aussie so probably wants that real life trophy haha.

I've looked up a bug exploit to grind money and XP pretty fast, like $200k in 2 mins.
It feels pretty dodgy but also it was annoying not being able to buy the cars I wanted to paint so I'm ok with it.

I'll go a few more times before they patch it :D haha.

That’s sick. Will give it a go.

* I don’t feel like it’s cheating that badly, people don’t gain any real advantage over anyone doing this.
It will speed up the leveling up process a fair bit by the do gains from ‘completing’ the race, plus help you get extra do by earning money, spending money and buying car achievements

Yunno I feel like this is a major event and it could have its own thread.

Anyway so are we talking about our own qualifying times for that or keeping it secret?
Not like i have a chance anyway though right :-/

I haven’t had a good look at that yet.
I thought it was based on the track event thing?

So you can see everyone’s times anyway
