    Ive posted this so people can watch a good review of this game.
    Race Pro is the Xbox version of the legendary Race 07 PC sim from SimBin(and its later incarnations) still used today by many online racers.
    Several of us from the F1 2011 League from Xbox have started playing this game for some variety.
    The big gun Forza has clobbered this segment on Xbox but for racers who will trade-off great some eye candy and slick presentation for probably the best sim physics available on Xbox 360 this game is fabulous.

    Check out the review then get your copy for around £5. How big a mistake can £5.00 be?

    If you like it there is a small community growing of racers who race every Monday night on line. We would welcome some new drivers.

    Same story for me, got Race Pro looking for a PC level sim after years away from the PC platform and Race Pro delivered on the PC level physics. It also got me into PC racing sims and I too have left the consoles behind.

    Interesting that the ISR team rank Race Pro's physics higher than FM4 :cool:

    We have some good drivers in Xbox league who concur with ISR saying that Race Pro physics are better than FM4.
    Not all of us will go to PC based, so this is excellent for us on Xbox.

    I haven't played FM4 but I doubt its much different to FM3, which Race Pro beats hands down in the physics department. Everything else about it lacked polish though, the distorted sounds, the murky graphics and horrible framerates really started to grate after a while.
