    Gran Turismo Sport - Mondays 8PM UK forum races!

    Gr. 3 on the Ring and Gr. 4 on Dragon Trail look equally fun to me.

    I may have to sit tonight out for some time with the missus after a few busy weeks. Hope to have a few races around 10PM after she's off to bed though

    Vroooommmmm!

    Oh no, I got the whole thing from Playseat. But I did have to assemble it myself, bolting the seat to the frame. Just saying that it may work the same way with your Cobra seat. Just need to look out for a frame like this.

    That would depend on the dimensions I guess. I've got a Playseat Sensation Pro which basically consists of a (in this case, welded) frame and a replica Sparco racing seat:

    Heh, quad racing is definitely a different beast compared to actual track racing - or rallying in that respect But I'll admit it can be very exciting and additive too, having tasted some serious machinery on a enduro track once. In fairness, visiting actual motorsport event is work for me (mostly doing reports and occasionally getting in a seat, too). In my spare time, I struggle to get my arse to a track when I it's far easier AND more efficient to plonk myself in the Playseat in the attic. Just get that wheel and seat sorted to make it even better for yourself, too!

    Trust me, it's barely even a fraction of the cost And that's just speaking about some software... Even getting a decent wheel (150-300 pound) and seat (100-800 pound) together wil set you back far less than doing just a single race in the most basic entry level racing class...

    Good point, allow me to move this one over to Vroooommmmm!

    Wow, ancient indeed. How's the force feedback on that thing these days then? And even a Drivehub won't allow you to use it on PS4? And here we are Yeah, AC is a pretty amazing game (on PS4) with all that DLC in it. I basically just use it for hotlap practice occasionally, having no friends (currently) to race online with it. It was on sale in the PS Store 2 months ago, but I suppose you may be able to get a good deal on it elsewhere?

    On PS4? I got that on sale the other day for something like 12 quid. All DLC, adding up to loads of great cars and (I think a bunch) of great tracks. Well worth the money. Good reason, sad for me as I'm not on PC What kind of wheel do you have though? Tried a Drivehub?

    I've always been a console person. Did consider getting a gaming-spec PC at time but not doing it (now) - I hardly find enough time to play my racing games on PS4, let alone investing money (and mostly, time!) to enjoy the admittedly really good stuff on PC's. Sorry Would love to race you and others on the original Assetto Corsa on PS4! A PS4 port of Competizione hasn't been announced (yet) but the first one can be had for a few quid I think lots of forumites playing GT Sport here would be pleasantly surprised by AC's handling.
  11. Don't think it does but if it's framerate (and immersion) you're after you should give Driveclub VR a try for sure.

    To be honest I'd love to drag some people over the Assetto Corsa on PS4, having rediscovered it as the best aim on consoles. Doing the odd practice runs there on my own but very much for some proper simracing there. Then again, GT Sport is where it's at for most people here so I'm mostly glad we're doing the weekly online races again

    I may have a crack at the TT tomorrow then Loving how this 1,5 year old, still not that fancy but very entertaining racing game is very much alive here on the forums!

    Great fun indeed Enjoyed the Gr. 4 battle in Tokyo Highway much more than expected - actually quite a decent, fast flowing track with some overtaking points with the right cars! Struggled on Autopolis and even more Suzuka - though I hardly did any time trialing there like the rest on beforehand... Loved the F1500's on Brands Hatch and thus still very much up for doing a 'rllmuk Retro Grand Prix Championship' to put @mexos's 80's liveries to good use Also thanks for letting my Spanish fellow motorsports journalist Sergio (Serpox) join in the fun last night!
