    Career confusion

    Firstly, I'm loving the game. before all the haters start.

    I'm just ocnfused about where i am up to with my "Career" I have completed the 125cc Karts, I've then done some races in a focus RS and a Megane, now I've accepted a contract for a 250cc Karting thing.

    I've done races in a BMW and a Porsche track day round brands hatch.

    I am attempting to do the Zero to hero achievement and I'm worried I'm wasting time or missing races or summit. all im doing is the next race I can in the hope that i just go to what i need to.

    is this right?

    You don't need to do the invitationals to progress your career, only your primary contracted championship.

    Invitational events will be on the dates specified by the emails, so you can safely avoid them because you know which date they will be on, anything else is primary career.

    Yeah basically if you are doing a season of GT3 racing then just skip any event in your calender which is not a GT3 event- you'll miss some fun events though.

    I'm screwed for that Trophy anyway because I started in the Clio Touring Cup so unless I can go back to karts at a later stage I'll have to start again?!

    You have to start at karts for Z2H, so I'd think that even if you got an offer for the karts, it wouldn't count...

    You can have multiple careers going at the same time, so you could just start a second one from the karts and come back to your Clio later (or flit between them.. or whatever you like!)

    Ryzen R7 3800X - Gigabyte X570 Aorus Elite - 16Gig DDR4 (Ballistix Elite 3600) - ZOTAC GTX1080Ti FE with EVGA Hybrid Cooler - iiiyama ProLite B2783QSU - Oculus Rift CV1 - Samsung 860 250G SSD, WD 6T Black, WD 2T Black, OCZ 120G Vertex 2 SSD, LiteOn iHAS122 DVD-RW - Creative 5.1 speaker system - Logitech G19 - Gigabyte GM-M6880X Gaming Mouse - Fanatec CSL Elite + Formula V2 + CSP V3 + SSH Shifter - Windows 10 Pro (64 bit).

    Second machine used for additional testing. Ryzen R5 3600X - Asus Prime X570-P - 32G DDR4 (Crucial Ballistix 3200) - EVGA RTX2060 - iiyama Prolite E2607WS - Oculus Rift CV1 - W10 Pro (64 bit) - xbox360 pad or Logitech DFP (all at stock speeds)

    You can start a new career, you can have as much careers as you want.

    Thanks for that, I'm in no rush to get those trophies, I have most of the harder ones in the game so I'll mop them up later. I'm enjoying my career so far, I've gone Clios>GT4 Ginetta>GT4 Aston Martin>GT3 RUF and now Formula B so I'll stick with that and get the consecutive championships stuff then start a new career later.
