i like the idea of a one hour wait... it allows me to do other things rather than having to check the race track every 30 minutes to feel i'm not falling behind... it only requires a bit of patience..

I think you should get at least 1 racing point even if you loose. This is going to fall back into the same problems as the old system. If you do not have a upgraded car you can never win, hence you can never upgrade your car. It is a never ending cycle that leaves racers coming into the game late at the bottom of the race outcomes forever.

I think everyone that races should get a point, and then the top three get some extra ones respectively. That way everyone can progress, if if it is slower for some.

Anyone agree?


I agree I keep coming in 4th the same people going to keep getting top atleast one point is good

Is that a spelling error or is that how the UK spells Tires with a y?

whoopee..the first of four promised big updates for this month. Better hurry on the other 3..only 5 days left..
Also..why the long wait between races, and what exactly is a "tyre", and why would I want to upgrade such a thing?

Everything looks amazing, not sure why it takes an hour but the 10k buy in is kinda nice not to have, it was petty.

As for winning, do we just gain racing points or do we win money as well?


Great job ched and staff!!

yet another crappy update, all the money i wasted on my other car is for waste now. the best part is you get to spend 50 points just to see what it is about. wonder what the other crappy updates will bring us. only a matter of days until we see this!!

ANOTHER EPIC UPDATE FAILURE

the racing link will appear when you exchange 50 points for your license... then you can enter and begin racing.

Something doesn't make sense about racing ....at least to me it would seem that if one were to get more experience and upgrade their car accordingly they should run faster laps....at least on tracks with long straight sections and few turns....like Dartford Speedway. Just the opposite has happened to me.

I won the first race and got .03 experience points and 3 upgrade points. I used the first three upgrade points on handling by getting better tires....

8:43:01 PM You came 1st place in the Dartford Speedway race. Your best lap was 02:18:71

I ran the next hour a different track and came in first again.....and a faster lap time....got 0.02 driver experience points and 3 more upgrade points.

9:58:01 PM You came 1st place in the Red Light Circuit race. Your best lap was 03:17:23.

I used the upgrade points to increase top speed and acceleration. and have not won a race yet and placed 6th two times on the same track with much slower track times.

11:14:01 PM You came 4th place in the Red Light Circuit race. Your best lap was 03:25:21.

12:36:01 AM You came 6th place in the Dartford Speedway race. Your best lap was 02:31:35.
27/09/10
12:06:01 AM You came 6th place in the Dartford Speedway race. Your best lap was 02:21:77.

This just makes no sense to me....something seems wrong....
