I hope it handles a lot better in the production version.

Maybe it's just me or the way it is being driven but the car seems to want to float some in the turns. In one turn in particular the following vehicle seemed to handle the turn tighter.

The driver REALLY seems to be "getting on it" though. :thumbsup:

They have that track in Project Gotham Racing 2. It's weird to see a car driving on it without spinning out and slamming into the walls like I do:lookinup:

This is at the NRing! It has something like 200(?) curves on each (8 mile?) lap. Each curve has different grades and angles for entrance and exit - weighting and unweighting pitch and yaw are what it's all about. Even F1's will appear to float a little through a coulple of those turns where there is a small incline that peaks at the apex of the curve. Remember this is at best speed on street tires. This is why they like to test 'em there. My bet is that they are refining the active handling program. The spring rates and shocks should be finalized by now.

Try to catch some races there on SPEED channel - better than in person. You see much more of the track and its fun to watch the drivers' lines and strategies. When I started watching, I would get bored after a few minutes, but as I got into it more, the more I enjoy it.

From www.nurburgring.org.uk

"The Ring is, quite simply, the ultimate driving experience. 13 miles and at least 73* bends add up to what even racing drivers describe as the most demanding circuit in the world. It's hard to describe just how good it is until you've been there, but if you can imagine your favourite mountain road and your favourite race-track, and combine the best bits of the two, you'll get the general idea. (*There are various different figures quoted, depending on what you count as a bend - look at the photo to get an idea of the difficulty of counting them - but the official number is 73.)"

that's cool! thanks for posting it.:thumbsup:
No problem!

Not trying to be a fanboy here but the track is recreated pretty well in PGR2. (they have a Zo6 and late sixties Stingray to boot:))

Thanks for the clarification CadGeek. The Ring is unique, isn't it.
