    So many different cars and tracks, I could spend all day long just doing hot laps, I have to limit myself now, my favorite track is Road America, no matter how many times I lap that thing, I can always find a way to go a fraction faster, it's addictive I tell ya!

    Same for me with Nordschleife! :sneaky::geek:
    For me it helped to join the Club races here on RD. Now I do only the car and track for the races.
    It gets a bit boring after some time and I am actually spending less time in assetto corsa.
    Doubled the fun though! :thumbsup:

    I generally need a reason to do hotlaps. I usually do them when i have a race here on RD (or elsewhere), when i attempt to get a WR on RSR or more rarely when there a combo car/track that i enjoy particularly. It happened a couple of times that i did it because i had some sort of Epiphany about some tweaks on the setup of a car. Anyway it can be a lot of fun with a new track or a new car. The last car i really enjoyed was the f1 2017 mod from race sim studio in basically every possible track.

    Hotlapping: the sad fate of so many players in racing games, when they could be racing instead.

    Hard to race when there are no race...and please don't tell me you meant AI. No satisfaction in beating a computer.

    For me hotlapping is essential. You, the car, the track. Peace for the mind, unstressful learning. Just having your private time with the car :inlove:
    Of course I need races too!

    I get my satisfaction from doing 2-3 RD club races each week with a great group of fun and very competitive guys. Plenty of racing to be had. :thumbsup:

    Have you tried Sim Racing Systems? They seem to be really amping up lately and they usually have some kind of race going off every hour.

    Yes, tried and the level to be honest is not that high. I raced a bit there and often got rammed by other people. I prefer RD club races, people care a bit more about contacts.
