Anyone tried the Assetto Corsa tech preview?
I'm tempted to go to Long Beach Friday afternoon for Indycar practice. I'd like to see the new bodystyle up close.

I really liked Long Beach when I followed Champ Car many years ago. The nice thing about Champ Car (and I'm assuming Indycar which I have never followed since George destroyed both series) was that it was so much more accessible than F1.
After the Vancouver race, back in the 90's, I was walking past the used tires truck and asked the guy what they did with the tires. He said they all got shredded. So I asked him if I could have a couple. He shrugged and said "sure". So we walked home from the race wearing rear tires like a barrel. I got two round pieces of glass to fit in the middle and made tables out of them. I gave one to my buddy who couldn't go to the race - but I still love mine.
But I have to say I hate the look of the latest generations of Indycar. They remind me of mosquitoes buzzing around in circles.
Really looking forward doing some endurance again. This will be first time with driver changes!
Dunno. Three drivers in my team we haven´t started talking strategy yet but will be about 2h for us all I recon which isn´t that hard really. Not if you have a cockpit I remember the buttache when being in an office chair lol. If we will do it in one stint or diversify dunno pros and cons with both.There is no upper limit of drivers per team but I think most will be two or three man teams.
Got a DSD button box today. My keyboard is under the table when racing so this will be quite useful.

oqvist, that sounds like a fun race. Lots of pressure not to be the guy who puts it in the wall on hour 5.
True but it helps when you race with friends. I have a good score on finishing endurances however this time I am the weak link I believe...
It´s a beast of a car too even with TC and SC help I am still struggling with it. Been doing to much Power and Glory racing. Such difference between race cars of yesterday and today.
I wouldn´t say todays electronics aided cars are easier to drive just a helluva lot faster :)
Okay with some exceptions the DeTomaso Pantera is a pure monster. And Vintage corvettes on a technical track hello insanity... I really really dig rFactor 2 physics though. It´s a new generation that´s for sure.
