    Looks good, I'll be a bit tight on time for work (as I get home at around 6.15pm on a Monday) but I'll have a stab in the cars and see how they feel.

    Depends on sign ups of course but it would be cool to have a sprint and a feature race, however I don't think PC2 allows this sort of setup.

    Thanks for setting this one up :)

    Auto gears??? Really Andrew? :(

    Huh? I'm sorry where did you get that idea from? :)

    I was referring to a short sprint type race (say ten laps, 15 minutes) then a longer feature style race (say twenty laps, 35 minutes) that sort of thing. However if I remember it's difficult to do that in the server setup on PC2, you would need people to wait whilst the server is setup each time. Although correct me if I'm wrong.

    No I don't use auto-gears my friend, unless I'm trying to learn a very new track and I may switch that on for the first ten laps of so until I get an idea of corner speeds.

    Auto gears is optional for learners :p I always use manual and that's why I spin a lot with these cars, always trying to slow down with the gears and forget that only works with FWD!

    Project cars 2 is slowly coming back to me. Just remembered that it doesn't allow grid reversal for race 2 and race 2 needs to be started from the lobby. So with that in mind I am considering changing the format to:

    5 min qual, race 1
    5 min qual, race 2

    Is everyone okay with this?

    I might have to think about getting PC2

    Can we make it 6 minutes? That would be an outlap and two fliers? However I’m happy with one hot lap if that’s what you are aiming for.

    I'd go with the SRO default of 10 min Qualifying personally. It doesn't make a lot of difference in overall event time.

    I don't think you would be disappointed Nigel.

    £44.99 still a lot of money
    will see if there are any deals in the next 4 weeks or so.

    If not will have to pay the full price.

    https://www.cdkeys.com/pc/games/project-cars-2-deluxe-edition-pc-steam-cd-key

    £5.99 or £11.99.

    can’t remember what the season pass includes but I assume it’s all the content. Classic Le Mans and so on. So you don’t really need it but you can get it later in if you like.

    ok, in answer to those questions on here, Project Cars 2 is more sim-cade than sim I suppose. However...it looks amazing, the immersion is lovely too. Daytona in the group c cars on a 24 hour cycle looks incredible. Some cars are better than others and so on. Some physics are questionable too but it’s still fun for me so I still race in it occasionally.

    The prices are great but when they are that cheap alarm bells start ring.

    Have you or anyone you know Andrew purchased PC2 from any of them.

    Hey, I believe they buy up tonnes of steam keys and then sell them on at a cheaper price that those shown on steam itself.

    most new games have no difference. They are the same price on steam as they are in cdkeys. However as games get older the prices in cdkeys can drop pretty rapidly.

    one example for you, I bought the ultimate edition of formula 1 2019 for £20 I think it was. So less that half the price of steam itself. On steam it was £54. Something like that.

    I should also point out that PC2 was £4.99 on steam some while back (new year sale I think it was) so they probably bought a tonnes of codes then.

    Up to you, I’ve used their service a few times, I know friends that almost all their entire steam library is made of cdkey purchases. Lol

    But if you google them you’ll find lots of positive reviews. I think the danger is refunds. Unlike steam there is no refund policy. So if you really hate a game I don’t think you can get your money back easily.

    you still have time to wait and see if they do a sale on steam again :)

    Will have a little think before I decide on what to do.

    No problem my friend. Like I said above I’ve only used them a few times. Unlike a lot of the other steam key websites, they are the only real legitimate looking one. As they sell steam and Xbox style gift cards and so on.

    usually the differences are only about 20% between steam and them in price but as PC2 is a few years old now I think that’s why the price is so cheap now.

    Apparently these sites buy them from other world regions were they are sold much cheaper than UK/Europe etc. It's not illegal as they are genuine STEAM keys.

    Will take a closer look. Will save a lot of money.

    Yes in fairness, in my case. I think a lot of us used them much more at the beginning (when even five year old games were still full price) and then Steam started launching lots of sales and special deals and we tend to use them less now but still a good alternative.
