    Its a lot better than the original game, but still has a lot of issues that need fixed before its worth the money.

    No, there's a bug that gives you engine damage for no reason. However I believe you can still blow your engine if your oil pressures gets over 270°F

    It has great potential, but there are still so many bugs that need to be fixed. This game shouldn't have been released yet. We should do a season in GT Sport instead ;)

    We've had almost 3 months of off season, how have you found it/spent it?
    I definitely needed a break. 3 months is a tad too long, but I wouldn't mind more time off between seasons (like a month or so).

    What in particular are you most looking forward to from the new game this season?

    LiveTrack 3.0 sure seems to add another dimension to the racing. It sure isn't going to make it any easier, but I'm looking forward to the crash videos.

    Good game, but same old story as everyone else.

    Away from games I went to F1, MotoGP, Speedway GP, British GT and BTCC, but then lots of testing once my wheel arrived.

    What in particular are you most looking forward to from the new game this season?
    The weather changes should spice things up, and who knows, maybe we can have another round of destruction derby at Donnington ;)

    Turn 1 is 2 wheels on the red stuff as the nature of the turn puts you out wide. Everywhere else is 2 wheels on the kerb I imagine :)

    Lol that’s means you have to go slower if it pushes you wide.

    Enjoying it more than I did at the start but has a lot of work to be what we hoped it would be. Still angry it was released in that condition

    We've had almost 3 months of off season, how have you found it/spent it?
    Not bad tried assetto was ok for a while but lost interest. Other than that work sleep repeat

    Just racing again getting everyone back together and the banter etc. Not expecting a great deal from the opening rounds due to my late switch to the Porsche

    Race Updates
    . As stated in the thread track limits will be policed this season using the Hotspot system we had on Project Cars 1. @LIAMATTHURSO and @Jamief430 will be checking the designated corners for each event as well as the pit lane exit.

    . The Track Limits for Turn 1 will be "2 wheels must remain on the Red Patch just to left of the kerb" anyone with all 4 wheels over this red patch will be used as a strike.

    . The Track Limits for Turn 4 will be " 2 wheels must remain on the kerbs anyone seen with all 4 wheels off the kerb on exit will be added as a strike.

    . Each driver has 8 strikes for the Feature Race and 4 strikes for the Sprint Race worked from a 1/3rd of the race distance.
    .This had been changed before the season/race started and the stewards had been informed it was a mistake on my part to update it on here so apoligys on that front.
    This will be posted at each event to clearly state the amount of Strikes Per event.
