My go to car in PC2 is the Lotus 49 but I have been forcing myself to branch out a little into other vehicles.

The Lotus 98t is wonderful. It has been teaching me better throttle application because if you just mash the gas on this you have an appointment with some Armco.

I have also had a couple of wonderful races in the Ford Escort RS1600. Try it at Bannochbrae, it is thrilling.


Any other recommendations to take me out of my comfort zone ?

Ginetta GT5 or Junior in changeable weather at Oulton Park or Knockhill are my favourites.

Any of the British tracks with the Clio Cup. I'm finding that a season in that car helped with balancing the car with it's wicked lift off oversteer. Nic Hamilton helped develop and signed off on the car, potentially the most realistic modelled car in the game.

I haven’t really tried any of the modern tin tops. Will have to give the Clio a try. Maybe at Cadwell Park.

1959 ASTON MARTIN DBR1/300 :yes:

Walnut dash, leather seats, lovely steering wheel !
Take her out through the English countryside on a sunny Sunday afternoon, just like in the good old days...

It is very good. I couldn’t drive it until I started playing in VR. Same with Brands Hatch.

For me the ford V8 supercar is a lesson on throttle control

Any formula car at bathurst. They destroy every corner at max attack unlike any other car does there. I only enjoy that track with a formula car.

Mclaren F1. Barking mad and perfectly balanced.

The Long Tail is a beast!
The GT1 cars are worth a try.

Any Group C car at Sakitto
The Caterham SP300R at Knockhill, Oulton Park or any other circuit with lots of turns and elevation change.
LMP2's at Daytona Road - I found this to be more fun than I expected.

The BMW 2002 Turbo is a little gem.

While obviously not a new car I have just discovered the joys of Watkins Glen. I could never drive it properly on my PS4 but in VR it is fantastic. Wonderful flow and elevation changes.

Try bathurst in VR. I had the same with Bathurst. In 2D I could not race 1 good lap but in VR all things falls together and it is now one of my favourite tracks.

Try the Renault RS01 at Donington Park. The amount of time you spend on throttle is astonishing.

1989 Audi 90. The car audio however is the absolute worst I've heard in all of PC2. it sounds like the audio engineer recorded it all through his cellphone without compression then brickwall mastered it. Overpowered peaking everywhere.

Car has always been a favorite though and it's otherwise done well in the sim.

Give the 1973 Nissan Fairlady 240ZG a shot. It's not very fast (and not good for night driving) but I've been zipping around Sugo and I find it very fun.

Really? You think it's that bad? Just curious because I really like the sound of it.

I think Bannochbrae is my favourite track. It's so rewarding when you get it right.

My favourite cars to take around: Renault FR35, Audi LMP900, KTM XBOW. Caterham SP300/R.

Lotus 40 in the rain at the Nord is a loon! Default set up is best.

The Mercedes Benz 300 SL is a blast to run up the Azure Coast. Not too fast, so you can really hang it on the edge through the corners. It has a fair bit of body roll and weight transfer, so you need to keep it balanced, but get it right and the little car can leave a smile on your face.

The BMW 2002 (either one) around Bannochbrae is quite fun too. I recommend running it in the wet. You can really hang the ass out on many of the corners, and the balance of the car makes it very forgiving if it gets away from you (easy to recover).

I second the Rote Sau (300 SL).
It's a highly underrated overgrown puppy.

The M1 ProCar is a thing to behold too.
You just have to put the tyres into temperature and then it's ready to go on default setup.

Road A, always. Where the actual challenge lies.

The pleasure of controlling those machines..., unrivaled exquisite experience.

I hear ya. I’m in the Lotus 98T 90% of the time(usually at Monaco & Long Beach) mainly because I just love that era(mid 80s-early 90s) and gritty street tracks.
It’s my comfort food in PC2.
I need to wean myself off it if, so I can force myself to try and appreciate other car types.

Had the Lotus 49 out at Monaco the other day for the first time in VR. So much fun. Casino square is wonderful.
I’d love to see the old layout released as a DLC.

I love taking the hard brake before the Nouvelle Chicane in the 49/49C, because every single time the car tries to kill you by sliding everywhere else BUT the direction you need the most.

Yes. I have approached that chicane at some VERY peculiar angles. Sometimes backwards. ;)
