So I thought it would be fun to do this 3 hour race, and given I qualified in 1st place with the AI set at 100% I thought this would be a walk in the park.
This wasn’t to be!
Before I even started the race, I noticed my set up had changed. I couldn’t change it back because I didn’t have a clue what all the changes I made were. So I adjusted what I could remember back (Tyre Pressures) and clicked start.
But I can’t totally blame that for my performance I made mistakes during the race also…….
After an hour or so I noticed my braking distances weren’t what they used to be, a pit stop later no change.
Couldn’t work out why???
Then into one braking zone I spotted it, I wasn’t lifting off the throttle while braking like I should have been.
I put this down to getting mentally tired from it, because I literally had to start thinking about lifting my foot off the accelerator instead of it just happening.
From this alone I can see why WEC Drivers have driver swaps after so long, but not only that what I once considered a comfortable seat on the GT Omega Evo Rig I use, become very uncomfortable around the 1 hour mark.
I found myself shifting about trying to get comfy, and focusing on that countdown timer telling me how long is left.
Because all I wanted to do was get up and walk about haha.
Another thing that would have helped would have been working out how long a set of tyres last for and being able to match that to the fuel load.
As Career practice at 30 minutes just wasn’t enough, to work that out and set up the car.
so better preparation would have made me a lot faster and this experience a lot easier.
But you live and learn as they say, and I learnt a fair bit about endurance racing on Project CARS Career mode here.
Would I do it again? Yes! without a doubt. It’s nice to have a racer come out that understands people want to race for more than 3 laps. Thank you Slightly Mad Studios for that!
Lastly I’ve added 3 chapter points during this to allow you to easily watch in sections. Because I doubt any of you guys will sit and watch 3 hours of my driving will you?
But either way thanks for watching guys and girls, every minute you spend watching this and my other videos is really appreciated!!
