Seeing as how all these people are trying the longer races, I decided to try one myself. I know 46 laps isn't long, but racing on a chair from a dining table isn't easy.
If I was to drive a longer race, I wanted at least to drive a comfortable car on a comfortable track. So, I chose the Lamborghini on Donington Park. Qualified with a time of 1.04 and I thought it wasn't bad. Well it was, and I was down to 18th on the start. Rolling start, and I pushed my way up ahead to 14th in the first corner. I was pushing the car a lot, but I knew the track well, and was getting constant 1.04s.Up to 3rd. I needed to pit because the fuel went maximum to 45 so I split that time and went in 26th lap. Changed tires,refueling, everything OK. And, the trouble began.... Just as I was exiting the pits, an idiot with a Saleen pushes me off the track in T1. I didn't damage the car and continued. Just a 1 lap after I was closing down on the guys infront of me. Now I noticed an idiotic thing about GTR2's AI. The guy infront wanted to pass the guy infront of him. He blocked and as I was just about to outbrake him, he turns to his line back. Whack, and the splitter is gone, aero damage, hell of understeer.
Limping back to the pits. Exited in 21th position. Again pushing, moved to 19th, but with a lot of pushing. Moved to 15th, and just after T1, entering the downhill chicanes
the guy in P16, gets it all wrong and uses ME as a wall to keep him on the track. Kinda reminded me of Gran Turismo 4...
No damage on the car, and finished in P16, with a full grid of GTs and 23 cars total.
Look at the car and you'll see how pissed of I was...
PS The time I lost my splitter I couldn't drive the car so I went into the pits for a 2nd time
