I'm torn now about what else to buy :laugh:

Track pack has 3 tracks I don't own, DTM2013 has 3 tracks I don't own and 3 cars, DTM2014 has 2 tracks I don't own and 3 cars and they have offline championship play so I could come last without multiplayer too! :p

I want Brands Hatch, obviously (GP cct would be nice - hmm?) and Laguna and Bathhurst *sighs* It's not easy deciding what to buy and my wife might kill me if I go for 'all of it' which is a possibility :whistling:

Don't forget the pitstops and tyre choice in DTM 2014!!
 
Pretty good looking update. Excellent decision to bring all tracks up to date in one go.

A bit bummed tho that I own Portimao already. Would be nice to be able to get some other track if you own it already.
 
I've been enjoying the free content on this but I find their entire approach to selling bits and bobs of content to be offputting in the extreme!

So much overlap, so much nickel-and-diming me for liveries etc. - it's a crap way of doing it - just sell me a game please - one where all the players have all the content and can race with each other etc. etc.

No use selling people bits of a game and expecting them to play together - no use selling half a jigsaw...
