As the debate is still raging about the driving view in RACE, I thought that since my wife drives a Honda Euro, I was in a position to take a comparison to the real thing, and that it might be worth sharing. Even though I'm convinced that the passion in the driving view thread is less about realism and more about perceived competitive advantages, by both sides of the debate (why else would people be pushing so hard for the rules to be set), the following pictures make some comparisons to provide a bit more insight into the realism part of the debate. Picture 1 is from our Honda, with the driving position where I sit, and the camera held against my eye. Picture 2 is a screen shot from the Honda, with the driving position about the middle of available locations, but I tried to go back only far enough to see the mirrors properly. I adjusted the visual options in line with those recommended by others to maximise the frame rate (ie. turned off steering wheel etc) Picture 3 is another screen shot using my preferred bonnet view, ie. with the camera as far back as possible. I'll make no comments as everyone will interprtet things differently. Just thought you might find this interesting. PS: I couldn't take the real Honda to Oschersleben for direct comparison as my wife wouldn't let me (bit far from Oz).
