As maybe some other members here, I recently had the opportunity to drive a real race car on a real track . I just wanted to share this experience with you. I am a huge fan of Porsche 911 since I was a young boy, and until know I never had the opportunity to drive or even seat into a real one. I just would say that there is so many other priorities in the real life My wife offered me this year a session on track for my 50th birthday. What a surprise ! I have driven a Porsche 996 GT3 cup with manual gearbox at the track Anneau du rhin (here is sebastien Loeb driving , 9 time Rally WRC world champion ; just for you to know the track) Simulation is one thing, driving a real pure 400cv race track with slicks tyres on a real track a total another thing. Some people would say , it is "just" a 996 cup. It is not a formula one or a crazy GT Le mans series . it is "just 400 cv" . After all, we can drive so many more powerful cars within assetto corsa without any difficulties. My only humble comment is that it has been a thrilling experience. The car is a BEAST, a MONSTER for someone not used to do that. I was wearing an Helmet, and after 10 laps I was almost deaf . It is almost impossible to breathe during the curve, the car vibrates, screams, ..... It is just insane. your FOV is limited to the track. Just leaving the pit on 1rst gear is a challenge . The clutch is about 2 cm, the gear box makes noise and seems to be blocked, the all car seems to be about to explode Until 4000 trs/min, it is scary, beetween 4000 and 6000 tr/min, it is crazy, and above it is unreal. you dont drive anymore, the car goes forward and it is like you are about to be projected through your recaro seat The slick tyres have about NO limits on such track. same thing for the brakes. When you are approching the curves at 200 km/h or more and you have to brake at 50 m, your just think you are going to die , nothing less . After driving myself, I could make some "real" laps with a professional driven, as a passenger. It is really difficult to keep your eyes open. you just can barely move because of the G forces, especially by braking. And then you just wonder how can such car be driven during real race ! Assetto corsa has a lot of sensation to offer, and we can drive many beautiful cars. But it remains that the real life on track is a totally different thing. I have probably exagerated, but for a normal guy it is about what you feel the first time in such a car, which would be totally undrivable on public roads.
