    Ok - can I ask on what you base your unshakeable belief that this is a boring track? You must have some experience of it, to hold such a strong opinion.

    Hey @David
    Reading this I just thought this guy is waiting for a racing game to lower his boredom and his feeling of being "burn out on Raceroom".
    But Im not sure the game Raceroom can do anything about this boredom of yours.:)
    You can take this as a well meant advice or as an irritating interfering in your state of feeling - but my own strategy against starting such a long spiral of going down (gamewise :D) can be seen in another thread.
    Because in this thread Im humorously setting myself and another driver up for fight on a certain LeaderBoard against each other.:laugh:

    Hehe and I can pretty honestly say that I have never used so much concentration to both try to cook a new magic setup together and then afterwards try to lower my personal LB laptime milisec by milisec.:p
    So at least for the time being Im not bored of Raceroom.

    The AC track by that legend @Fat-Alfie was fantastic fun. I can hardly wait for this to be released.

    True, but surely that's because real racing is more fun than sim racing. :) Given the choice, I'd much rather be doing this for real on my local club tracks than sim racing F1 at Spa.

    That's true, but on the other hand, more and more real race drivers use racing sims at home regularly, so sim racing can't be that bad either, otherwise, why would they do it in their precious free time.:)

    Oh I'm certainly not saying sim racing is bad. I love it. :thumbsup: But if I had lots of cash and didn't have any other time consuming responsibilities, I'd head to Castle Combe every day and race whatever they had rather than racing on my PC I think. :D

    Did a few laps with the Porsche 964 Cup. It's a really great and fun track, but very hard to master. Not easy to find the correct braking points and apexes. Definitely one of the best tracks i've ever driven on.
    Hint : take a slow car to start with ;)

    Thanks:thumbsup:
    I will probably have to buy it before I know if I like it and/or can handle it.
    My problem is that because I use a handcontrolled thr/brake up on the wheel I cannot drive on tracks where you have to correct a lot on the wheel at the same time as you have to massage brake or throttle.
    As example Hockenheim is complete :poop:

    Any comparison to Fat Alfie‘s version layout and feeling wise?

    Is it LS?

    @Fat-Alfie : Did you use any scan data? Cause the flow feels so believable on yours.

    My personal oppinion after 10 laps is that I will not use this track much.:sleep:
    Compared to my former Raceroom buy then I became fan of Dubai after 1-4 laps.
    With this Bilster Berg it became a personal hate track instantaneously.
    The best way of description is that it feels like a goofy driver's license maneuvering lane.
    Not fun just goofy and irritating(IMO).
    I made a video of my 5th lap on this maneuvering lane.:roflmao:

    ByTheWay: Im not angry - but my stingy wallet want to divorce me:(
