Having nothing more important to do, I’ve been learning the Nürburgring tourist track on the simulator.
The problem is, the pedals keep sliding on the floor, which does not contribute to accurate timing. 🙂 I drove the Audi this time instead of the BMW, they are very similar in almost everything, other than Audi wiggling and drifting a bit on the limit allowing you to save the situation sometimes, while the BMW just loses the tail and spins out.
Talking about the BMW, I repeated the same laptime with it:
I can’t seem to beat that time despite the fact that both cars could go faster; it’s just that I lose time on the mistakes that are partly due to the fact that the force of pressing the brake pedal actually moves the pedals on the floor and that messes everything up, and since I keep it close to the limit, imprecision during braking results in errors. The other cause of errors is me sucking. 🙂
OK, I think I memorized the track enough not to crash due to forgetting that bend; let’s speed this up:
And some fun in heavy fog:
My times are actually improving, even with the fog as a test of memory.
I actually shaved more than 10 seconds off my best time with the BMW:
