You have to watch them in order to play online. I watched them, but still haven't tried an online race...too scary.

I don’t race online either. I don’t have enough experience.
Nobody else gives a flying f*** about that. So, you'll fit right in.

Honestly, racing online fairlyy isn't hard. All you have to do is remember other cars are on the track with you and then pay attention to them.

It’s been years since I raced online. I could give it a try again.
Why not. Give it a go. I bet you're better than you think. You've been out the scene awhile and don't realize how bad 80% of the userbase actually is. Go offline, set A.I to lowest, change A.I to mix of destruction Derby and Rally Cross, then set the last A.I driver to Lewis Hamilton mode. There is what your first 10 to 20+ races will be like.

Started playing this again this past weekend and addicted to it like I never was when it first came out. Looking back I didn't even put 10 hours in it and had only done 100% gold driving school and about 40% gold on the track challenges or whatever they call them. I've been going through those again now and plan on finishing that at 100% before moving onto the campaign. From my understanding they've made it a bit more like the previous game so that's good.

My first race back in like a year. Just taking it easy and getting familiarised with things.

Consistently good. Stayed with the pack. 666 pissed me off at the start and almost took you out on turn one.

I wouldn’t have been good enough to be in 10th like you. I’m too rusty now.

Nice Mustang too.

If I was more aggressive I could have done better, but honestly, with how they were racing, I thought the pack of 3-4 cars ahead would wipe each other out. So, I was waiting for that. Not to be this time.

Just try. You'll soon be back in the swing of things and climbing places.

I had to rewind a couple times. Was it just the rumble strip that broke you loose? Would be cool to see in replay view.
Yeah, if look close I had the front tyre all the way over the strip and the rear on the rumble strip. Couple that with the turning and the unbalanced state of the car just makes it flip out.

I downloaded the game this weekend. Only ran 2 laps time trial at Laguna with a GR.3 C7 Corvette. But then we had to leave. It wasn't pretty. Ended up in the 1:30s. (you can probably see it in your friends page in the GT Sport game).

Wow....THAT is what pisses me off about online racing. Oh, and that pop-in showing in the rearview mirror...holy hell that is laughable. I don't race in that view, so I barely noticed it before. That view really exaggerates it.
The pop in isn't a big deal. Can't say I even noticed when racing.

You have ZERO problems staying with the pack I noticed. And working your way up slowly but surely.
My set lap time was from the qualifying of my first race back, it is like 2.00.450, but I can do a 1.58.5 ish time which most of the time would get me around 5th on starting grid instead of the 12th ish. Just taking it easy this week. When the dailies change I will start putting in my best time in qualifying.
