Hey guys

I'm pretty new to the racing community and I want to become a clean driver.

I'd like to take some lessons from someone that is experienced (preferably from someone in europe or even in a german speaking part).
We can discuss the price privately.



Thanks a lot

No offense to you or any sim racers but you probably don't want to learn to drive from most sim drivers out there. Some good guys will help you for free. Anyone charging is probably ripping you off.

If you get comfortable racing with the AI without crashing into them try finding a league that races at a time you can also race. Thats honestly the best way to learn. Everyone in the league will know your new and should give you some advice.

If you are a motorsport fan or have youtube watch some races, watch some onboard cameras.

Just be patient. No shame using all driving aids. Start off with something like GT5. Find a track you think you may like. Avoid tracks with gradients. But has a good mix off fast and slow corners. I suggest track of the americas or road America. Then just use that track until you know it like the back off your hand. Before long youll have a good understanding off the game mechanics. And when you try new cars and tracks. Youll know the basics

Don't brake in turns unless you really have to
Brake before a turn...throttle up smoothly when coming out...
In rain be careful x2
Look for the shortest way around the track (race line)...usually the blackened part of it.
Practice a lot
Use every aid available at the beginning and dial them out when you progress.
Respect those who are on track with you...if you can't pass safely,wait for another opportunity.
The race isn't necessarily won in the first turn...
I think those are the most important points...
All free....enjoy! :cool:

Also as you want to be a clean racer. Best way would be to start at the back of races as youll get more opportunity ducking and diving

As mentioned, find a good social race club or beginners league and be vocal about being new and being willing to learn. Everyone will help for free. You can also watch YouTube/ twitch streams of sim racers. They don’t have to be PCars. Clean racing is clean racing. There are also a ton of howto vids on youtube often made by those same streamers.

But step 1 is being in control of your car at all times.

I could help you, but then you'd probably sue me, plus I race dirty as hell most of the time.

I could ask for help too but I'd be sure to be certified instead.

Please don't pay for lessons from people playing sim games. 95% of them have never raced before and you would only being scammed...

No need for paid driving lessons. Just check out this thread: http://forum.projectcarsgame.com/showthread.php?53371-How-to-Develop-Your-Racing-Skills

I'll add more:
-turn a bit later than what you'd think
-take a late apex. approximately 2/3 of the curve
-in most cars, the tip of your steering wheel shall point towards the exit. same for your eyes :)

Read Speed Secrets from Ross Bentley (your money much better spent), and then practice, practice, practice.

I watch other people wreck their fast cars from a little perch at a proper race track. I have the answers you seek.

The topic makes me think though, how cool would it be to do some sort of real life PCARS community gathering? Some rig setups indoors, sunshine and BBQ outdoors. :)

I once was in a Dark Age of Camelot guild (AGES AGO lol) and we have a real life hangout in Gouda in the Netherlands where our guild leader lived. Was really fun!

If an AI tries to overtake in an unsafe location, shunt him into the ARMCO.

Then pause and watch the replay. :cool:
