Performance Test: Ginetta G55 GT4 @ Brands Hatch

Dyrgl
I bet you´ve seen all these "Project CARS vs Real life" videos where someone manufactures a lap to be as close as possible to the real thing, and then show it side by side. What I´ll do here is the opposite, set a fair set of conditions and try to go as far ahead of real life as my driving allows me. EXPAND ME AFTER WATCHING.

How accurate the performance of each car is in this game? How close are the cars to their real life counterparts? Find out here

TEST SETTINGS

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

WEATHER AND TIME:

- Free practice mode
- Cloudy, August 8th, 13:00

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

SETUP LIMITATIONS:

- The car must have enough fuel to come back to the pits after the hotlap.
- Cooling levels were safe and suitable for a long race.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

FORMAT LIMITATIONS

- After 15 minutes of practice, I limited myself to 2 short stints of 4 hotlaps each.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

CONCLUSSIONS:

Really poor results. The performance gap is huge, and the grip levels seem to be way too high. Stopping the car is far easier, we have more lateral grip, and we have more traction too. Not good...
