So what I'm saying is its Not about what Driving view you use whats most important is finding the view thats best for you...dont forget
    peole who race in VR Only people with tripple screens and single screens would complain VR has a unfair advantage....ijs. .
    So how about people with steering wheels actually being at a disadvantage due to the instant steering response (therefore instant countersteer) on controllers. Just look at the statistics and you'll see that the fastest people on any track are using controllers. Why is no one complaining about that one?
    I own an Oculus, and let me tell you that with the current FOV (110) you are not getting an accurate feeling of speed and the track feels compressed. You're not really getting an advantage with current VR headsets. It's rather for the immersion, not for having a competitive edge.

    Finally someone complaining on the advantages of a controller vs wheel lol

    On a serious note... Every setting/input device has its advantages/draw backs.
    You choose one and do the best you can with it... If it's allowed there's nothing much anyone can do about it.

    That's very far from being true, it's quite the opposite in PCARS2 and any other sim. I have absolutely nothing against people using a controller or keyboard, but if (most of) the fastest times were done using a pad, IMO this would indicate that something is very seriously wrong with the physics of the game. Like for example in Grid Autosport, where pad drivers get extra grip, to compensate for the less precision, so in it yes, pad users are always first in the leaderboards. I assume the same happens also in GT, Forza etc, although I have never played those games.

    Let me tell you that yes, you absolutely DO get an accurate feeling of speed. Having driven Brands Hatch, Snetterton, Donington, Cadwell Park, Oulton Park and Castle Combe in my time I can tell you that driving on a racetrack feels glacially slow at times (never more so than Silverstone) and the Rift recreates that very well. Race tracks are wide, wider than any normal UK road (motorways excepted), and then you have grass/gravel beyond the track and then you get the barriers and finally maybe some track furniture or trees behind those barriers. All those objects are a long way back from your peripheral vision, giving you precious little visual clue as to your actual speed. 140+mph down hangar straight at Silverstone was the most boring experience I've encountered on a race track, it felt like I was doing 50 or 60mph.

    All of which is waaaaaaaaaay off topic, sorry mods.

    Just to back this up - the fastest controller times in these 4 qualifiers were mostly 2-3 seconds off the ultimate pace, with the only exception being at Oulton where yours truly* (yeah, sound of own trumpet being blown ) got within 1.7s. That was also the best finishing position for a pad user across the 4 rounds, which was 70th.

    *I'm pretty sure I'm not the quickest out there with a pad, but I'd like to think I'm not that far away either

    With all due respect, this is absolute rubbish. You shouldn't be counter steering, if you are counter steering then you are losing time.

    Well, tomorrow is the Shootout race for the amateurs. I finaly was convoked as reserve. No much time to practice because received confirmation yesterday, but hope that nobody who deserve fails.

    The shootout race is in Algarve, that for what little I've tried, will be a troubled track with this car (extreme tyre overheating).

    The times are close, but some of the fastest didn't score times in TT, probably to hide his performance. http://cars2-stats-steam.wmdportal.c...cle=3019822479

    The race starts at 20:00 (I think it's GMT, so 21:00 for most european contries) but don't know if will be streamed. If some player is going to broadcast, please link your channel to follow you.
