Hmm... apart from the last couple of levels, the medium difficulty tracks were much easier than the "easy" tracks, or is it just me?

I'll upload my medium picture later, if I can't better it. I haven't attempted hard yet.


Easy: 114

I've always used manual gears in this game but I play better with automatic gears,however the last easy circuit is very unfair playing with automatic gears!

Well I had a go at the hard tracks. I have to say that some are very easy, some are tricky (you have to go slow to go fast) and others are crazy (desert and snow - no road markings!).

I won most races, came 2nd about 3 times and finished some of the harder tracks in 9th or 10th place. I believe I made it to the last track, but came a miserable 20th

Here's my score so far

Easy: 114 (see previous post for picture)
Medium: 162 (see previous post for picture)
Hard: 191 (attached)

Total: 467

Hmm, so the refueling system is the same as in Lotus, and the drivers' names are the same as in Supercars.

Yay, Graham hasn't updated the scores yet, so I'm still in 1st place

Great job john4p, looks like I'll have to up my game and put the peddle to the metal!

Thanks. But be prepared for a highly competitive round - I'm pretty sure we'll see scores close to the maximum possible of 640 by capehorn, Biscuit, Parpala and maybe others...

I wasn't expecting to win this round, but it would be nice to finish near the top end of the board for a change.

I'll have a go at this but I won't be putting in as much effort into the league this year as I did last year. I've never played this before and won't go into nearly as much detail trying to learn the tracks!

If you discover some tactic or tip that gives you an advantage, what's the policy on sharing it? I felt guilty last season because on one of the games I discovered something which pretty much won me the round on it's own and I didn't share it.

I haven't played this before either but I think it is easier/better than Lotus 2 as you are actually racing for positions not just trying to get to a checkpoint before time runs out. It is also easier to learn because you are doing several laps around the track before the race is over.

As long as it is not cheating I don't see any problem in not sharing your tactics.

Depends on what you expect,I personally am going to play the game when I want and not to win for that reason I don't mind sharing the secrets.

The manual gears is worse or for very expert players at least.The most circuits you don't need refuel narrowly but in some circuits will depend on how often you hit.The rivals has a pattern of moving to one side and then to the other, it's useful to know to get ahead of them.

It's the best Lotus in my opinion.what Ze Emulatron said,not necessarily you have to win to continue playing is much more addictive in this way.The difficulty is very well adjusted together a perfect gameplay.
