The contest wasn't too fair IMO.

 

But worst bit for me is, I thought I'd log in to give my time one final boost ... BUT my game keeps telling me that it couldn't establish a connection to the server.

 

 

Seriously NOT COOL!

After my code worked, I thought that I would give it a go, see how good my driver really is. In b-spec mode he wins with ease (granted the car is usually more powerful than the opposition, but I can pretty much leave him alone and come back when he's won).

 

But wow, what a contrast with the competition. The best I could get him home was a fluke 2nd place around Indy (0.028 of a second, why?). After that it was 5th's and 6th's all around. It wasn't down to his speed either, he would get to 7th or 6th in one lap and then once he got to the LFA or the R8 he would spend the remaining 7 or 8 laps neatly following it to the finish (even going on the dirt at the same time as the opponent cars).

 

Still I did enjoy the nice bulk of exp that the game gave for completing each challenge. I used it to get me to level 20 b-spec, so it served it's purpose :)

 

Being level 19 at the time was most likely the reason for coming in 5th though.

You will find your speed bar will fill up as your lvl increases, obviously.

So effectively your driver was to slow at that lvl.

Once your driver hits lvl 40 you will know what I mean.

 

As I was saying, your total race time is dependant on passing the slower cars.

My drivers used to be in the lead after 2 laps and ran the last 3 out in front.

So it was critical to pass everyone as quickly as possible to get a decent time.

 

Not being able to get past the Audi is indicitive of your drivers slower speed compared to higher lvl drivers.

"...Passing slower cars..." At level 27, my driver must be homosexual, he didn't want to "pass" anyone, just wanted to ram them up the tail-pipe (I've watched Sex Drive alot recently), so I was never gonna stand a chance with a driver who couldn't see the cars in front! Off topic, on-line lobby races, 270mph+ karts? I was up for a fair race, and then saw that...!
