Could I suggest that all lap times are done without any driving aids whatsoever (no ABS, no TCS, no steering help, no racing line, semi-auto transmission, no throttle or brake assists, no spin assist), but you can pick whatever car and use whatever view you like and make whatever car setup you want? Nothing like diving down the deep end with a new game!
And to start off, let’s begin with the Australian GP considering it’s also the first race of 2011. All lap times must be in by Monday Of each week, 10am GMT. After 10am GMT the next round will commence and you have until the next Monday to post a lap time.
We’re doing this on the ‘Proving Grounds’ mode, though. It limits the car, the track, the conditions and the set-up, so we’ll all be on a level playing field. I imagine the driving aids will be free for the player to choose. Thankfully, using driving aids will apparently give you a weight penalty, so you’ll only be able to do the fastest lap times with all aids off, which is good news for me! That Monday scheduling sounds alright though.
