    Yup!  That is one of the key fixes of that part. It seems as though it hasn't worked. Just done a quick test on a Spanish stage in BMW E30 and Ford Sierra, same difficulty, time of day (obviously same stage). The top AI when I was driving the BMW did a 1.19 on the stage, but was 30 seconds slower when I was in the Ford. I'm playing on Xbox by the way and was running 'demanding' difficulty

    For championships and rallies with a larger number of stages it does. It would be nice to have a few Ai swap fastest times between stages every now and then (without them needing car problems for this to happen) just so it doesn't feel like you're racing one guy through the whole game.

    I'm not keen on how quickly the weather seems to change during a stage. Going from clear skies to thick fog and back to clear skies again in little over a minute looks silly to me. Everything else looks awesome though, and the official liveries are the icing on the cake.

    The heat haze before the stadium truck race as well as the sound as they all floor it in unison is stunning

    After playing Dirt Rally yesterday for the first time in a while I instantly caved in and pre ordered. Hoping there are plans for content post release on this one as well, but either way looking forward to it

    He's always been a bit of a loon. Last year it looked like he'd matured massively and for the majority of the season made Dovi look very very average in a way no teammate has since Stoner/Pedrosa, but clearly it was a blip.

    Was a great race but shows how much MotoGP is going to struggle in Italy once Rossi retires. The best race of the year but because Rossi wasn't in it people were leaving by the truck load.

    I'd imagine so, or at least an evolution of.

    Went to Brands on the saturday as was busy on the Sunday. Absolutely in love with that Vulcan. First time I've seen a GTE spec car as well in the form of two 458's in the GT Sport Club races, had no idea they were that loud. Genuinely sound like old F1 cars.

    No, but there are lots of different speculated reasons why he's moved. 1. Simply to try something different 2. Ducati making big steps over last 2 years since Gigi has been in charge of the bike (the man is a genius, not quite Newey equivalent but very highly thought of) and that is only likely to continue. Ducati have been close to winning races for over a year, with Lorenzo on the bike they would have won many last season. 3. Yamaha making the bike to suit both riders, Ducati will likely build the bike around Lorenzo regardless of his teammate. Yamaha already suits Lorenzo really well though 4. Money. Ducati/Lorenzo rumours have been around for years and years. Ducati have a big pot of cash, even more so since they've been owned by Audi. 5. Simply to get away from the Rossi saga, which is close to getting nasty again since end of last season. 6. Motivation of achieving what Rossi (biggest rival, says Rossi is best ever etc etc) didn't, winning on a Ducati. Also motivation from Rossi saying over the winter Lorenzo doesn't have the balls to move to Ducati. Rossi knew what he was doing when he said that, knew it would make Lorenzo move if he hadn't already decided to do so.

    I've got no problem with a game being 30fps as long as it is locked at it. Its games that try to achieve 60 but run anywhere from 60 down to 30 that are awful to play. Or anything Milestone create that is locked at 30 and still drops constantly

    No sympathy for Rossi? :p  As for Crutchlow, I'm blaming the bike. He's an awesome rider, his time with Tech 3 he was consistently up there. But since then, with the Ducati and the Honda, he seems to end up on the ground more often than finishing races :(  Yeah, that was a weird crash for Rossi.. As for Crutchlow it's definitely the bike, if you exclude Marquez everyone at Honda really suffers wth that front tyre. Just look at Pedrosa so far. Crutchlow has said that Honda have spent the last 5/6 years moulding the bike around two people who ride like no one else, Marquez and Stoner. No one can ride a bike that is basically built to be ridden like Marquez rides it.

    BSB is head and shoulders above every other form of motorsport when it comes to accessibility. While its not that relaxed on race weekends, the access you have to riders, teams, pit lane etc etc is fantastic.

    I was looking forward to having the Halfords Honda colours back on the grid, the Integra they used to run in those colours (and this goes for the Civic EP3 they ran in 2004 as well) is one of my favourite touring cars ever. But I could not be more disappointed in what this years Honda looks like. The livery is so bland, just a load of solid black block shapes on the car. No imagination or creativity at all, and also lacking in sponsors massively. Much preferred the red/white from recent seasons. Definitely doesn't look like a factory effort, looks quite amateur to be honest.
