    Can anyone tell me what the best way to bring out the Safety Car is please? I only want it in order to unlock the Opportunist trophy.
    I'm also a bit let down that I'm on my 3rd career season and I've not seen one Safety Car :(
  2. Safety Car is usually out at Spa. I got SC out on my 1-st season at this track. There are no special ways to bring SC out, but you need to go longer races, f.e. 20%, better 50%., and you'll have more chances. Good luck!
  3. I think there is a mod available to make it more likely if you are on PC.

    Edit - just seen your psn :)

    I've done it now. It took me causing a pile-up in the rain at Canada for it to happen though. Not how I wanted to experience it.
    Howcome loads of cars were able to overtake me during the SC period?
  5. Im doing 100% races now....I completed 20% races and found that it was to easy so I have now put myself where I have to race a full race so im looking forward to spa if its raining and silverstone. These 2 tracks had torrential rain when I raced them in 20%.

    My first ever safety car started at 19:35 in career mode at Monte Carlo. (caused by a Ferrari).

    Doing 75% and every other race there seems to be a safety car? Using no assist and fuel tyre sim

    Outside of the league races?
    I have seen several SC's in our league races, but in GP mode or Career mode i have only experienced one. It was for an AI engine failure at India.
  10. I said yesterday that I was hoping to see it at spa and or Silverstone, I raced Turkey Istanbul last night 100% distance.
    The safty car came out on lap 23 for 3 laps. I was in the lead by this time and the safty car sounds very nice.
    Not sure I like the auto breaking because you go to fast though? Surly I can see how fast Im going and when to break.

    If I can miss my team mate on the long left hander thats 4 or 5 corners that you take in 6th of low 7th gear, then Im sure I have good enough breaks to avoid the safty car?

    OK so I can get the safety car out now, but I keep getting overtaken whilst under the SC period.
    Is this a bug??

    Monaco, Singapore are definates for safety car on longer races, with canada in the rain also 99% chance. I got 2 safety cars in monaco. When racing singapore look out at the turn 18. Cars park themselves in the wall and no yellow flags come out, I've hit collided into cars in the wall about 3 times because the martials are hopeless.
  14. Safety car is bugged to hell. As well as overtakes, I remember one online race, I was 1st place, dropped back too far so the computer control sped me up behind the SC and got DSQ for being too close!
  15. I usually run 40-50 % races (Realistic, and fuel sim and tyre sim on, full damage etc.
    and have seen safety car quite a few times, both online and GP´s on my own.
    Also running right behind it, quite cool, even though some say its bugged or buggy.
  16. I didnt say it wasnt cool - it should be cool, in fact, it is cool, right up until you get DSQ :D
