After a few races I must say that everyone was right about there being much cleaner racing once you get out of the rookie cars. I can only speak for the road racing, and I should have gone to the skip right after getting my D license. That would have saved alot of frustration for me personaly with crazy people and hot heads. However I wasn't sure that I was ready and of course I had original intended on saving the credits I had with the Christmas special they did for after they released the new season. I was like a kid in a candy store though and just "HAD" to spend them...lol... So I have been sitting on it. I will say that I have seen a few wrecks in the offical races however every time something happened with myself it was my fault and only I was involved. Things like spinning, but nothing major to do any damage. I may not be the fastest car on the track yet but I'm having alot more fun to say the least. Last night before bed I got in one last race for the night and got some really good pointers after the race. During the race I was in third and got a little faster than I was comfortable with and spun. Coming back from last I managed to get back up to 7th and during the race while chasing a guy down I hit 1:23.043 so I know there is room to grow. Some corners I was a bit slow in but others I think I'm a bit to fast and right on the verge of losing it. So in short to anyone that is new like myself listen to the people here when they say get out of the rookie stuff asap...lol... Yes they may be fun, however it's a night and day difference in clean racing.
