There is a race every 48hrs... This gives people a chance to setup their cars and perform all the testing when they're free and hopefully will make it easier for everyone cross-timezone

This game is quite good actually. Isn't 48 hours between each session abit long though? 24 hours would have been enough.

I have to agree. 48 hours is a little long. I should point out that I have not (yet) bet anything of value on my quest to beat the lego one.

OKay,

I've updated it to run every 24hrs... And it seems that is still going to take 43hrs till it runs again...

Maybe it will change after the next session...

You sound surprised?!  Wow!

However I am still +2.178 behind you, that's not good... however I lost a run as I forgot I still had Monsoon tyres on for which I hold the record for the slowest lap (+11.807)!.

The interface for this game could be better, but I'll get used to it. How do you change your helmet design?

This game got me thinking, years ago EA Games made an F1 Team Manager game - it was pretty poor, but still fun at times(Remember it?). Shame they never developed it further, it could have been good.

Back in the day there used to be a few F1 games on the PC. It's about time EA released one on the PC, or Geoff Crammond released one again. It's something to do with licencing I think?

I'll be buggered if I am paying £100's for a PS3 or Xbox just for an F1 game. Sad

This game is fun.

Hey guys I was just thinking......

Maybe we could set up an actual online racing league. I mean one where you get to drive your own F1 car around the circuts.

Check this sim out, it's called rfactor (you can download the trial version for free): http://www.rfactor.net/

Then you can go here: http://rfactorcentral.com/index.cfm and download all sorts of cars, tracks, skins, etc.

Here's the F1 mod: http://rfactorcentral.com/detail.cfm?ID=F1%202005

Oh shoot, I just remembered you have to buy it (USD $25 I think it is) to be able to race online. Nevermind. Unless someone has it already, or wants to try it out. It's really cool, you should check out the trial version.
