Just got racing around Hockenheim with the 250cc Superkarts, and they're getting close to being my fave vehicle in the game. Far too fast for the kart tracks, these rockets need real racetracks. Ive got my controller settings under control enough now that i can handle these and even the Formula A cars (after the tires warm up). And im even using the buttons for gas/brake. I use the triggers to change views and look behind.

This at its core is an amazing game/sim. It needs polish...but the base is there for an great experience.

Having a "Track Day" environment on a console racer is something ive always dreamed about...Very doable now with Project Cars.

So far the SuperKarts has been my favorite series as well, with a few of the historic series a close second.i'm waiting patiently for the patch since the fix for the escort is supposed to be in there.

hi,

same here, it's one of my fav vehicles, but there's a little problem for me.
We can run on sonoma raceway in carrer mode, wich is an excellent race! but we can't do it in time trial mode with the superkart.

Just a question for the Devs, WHY????

I had a blast racing this in career! once you get the hang of it, its absolute fun.

1 thing i wonder tho?
you use the buttons for gas/brake??? aren't those on/off buttons, no analog input?
i'm not questioning your skills, but how the hell do you keep control of such twitchy little thing?? ;)

Just finished the super karts season using the tx wheel on Xbox. It too is my favourite so far. They are so quick and can lap faster that most other cars in the game. Some people complained about the twitchy handling or when u touch a curb you spin out. I quite like that as you have to be precise and not run over the curbs or go off track etc. I was running 100% distance so 10-15 lap races at each track. Some were epic!!! I had the Ai at 100% and most of the time was well over 20secs ahead by the end. This could do with improving but still such a good season!! Onto formula rookie now!!

You always spin out touching the curbs with karts, thats real, why would people complain about that.

Try selecting a kart track in time trial, then you should see the karts

Hi, TenthDan,

i know this, but why is it impossible to run on sonoma raceway in time trial while we can in career mode?

Cheers mate.

I don't have the game in front of me right now, so can't double check, but are you sure you have tried all the track variations for Sonoma? You must be able to choose the superkart on ONE of them.
Superkarts typically run on "national" or "short" track variations, not the full size "gp" variations. And not necessarily on the "kart" variations.

If you still can't, please report the bug in the appropriate bug report thread

Hi Espen,

i've tried on all the sonoma's variations, but there's no way to run in superkart.
i've done a lil' video wich i'm uploading on youtube to show you.

I'll show you when it will be online, cheers.

Hi, i am enjoying superkarts too, but i have one issue in career mode. Last nigh i played first race in superkarts (Dubai), i went through practice and qualification, then i won first race, and finally in second race i finished third, or fourth, i am not sure. But after second race, game showed me, that i won both races, even the second one. Is this some mistake, or i am missing something?

Video is set to private (set it to "unlisted" if you want us to see it), but hey, I believe you ;) It just doesn't make logical sense to me that you cannot choose any of the car/track combos included in the career, so I'd call that a bug. When you discover combinations you like through career mode, you should definitely be able to recreate these events!

The only track restriction should be for the kart tracks only allowing the karts.. so you have to select one of the karts before the kart tracks show up.

Checking on PC the Sonoma GP/Superkart is OK in TT...

Please let me know when the video is unlisted, I check it out then

i can confirm (because i've been puzzled by the same thing)... with very few exceptions, if it's not a kart-specific track, you cannot choose karts as a car class for TT's. That includes every ribbon of Sonoma, Silverstone, etc.

hi guys,

sorry for the privte video, it's correct now.
you can check it here:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SUfreerkB8w

I've tried few time to race on sonoma raceway in super kart in time trial mode, but nothing, it doesn't want to let me choose kart.
And i think, i'm not the only one:
http://forum.projectcarsgame.com/showthread.php?23622-time-trial-on-Sonoma-raceway-250cc-superkart-impossible


edit: i've tried another way, i choose the superkart in my garage before choosing a race in TT, but it's the same, no super kart on sonoma raceway :-(

And sorry for my English

One race before end of mine 125cc championship. Was really a blast to drive them.
Looking forward to the 250 superkarts.
