GENERAL TIPS AND TRICKS
Experiment With Different Car Set-Ups
To get the best experience out of racing, make sure you try out different set-ups with cars to get the best out of racing in them. You should test different set-ups out for different tracks to find out what works best. Furthermore, you can view the ghost cars of the fastest players and download the car set-ups to help you find the perfect set-up.
Manage R&D Wisely
Before you start spending your money on research and development for different areas, it’s a good idea to just wait and learn the basics. Otherwise, you might end up spending money on an area where you don’t really need an upgrade immediately.
Showmanship Is Important
Apart from paying attention to your team and what happens on the track, the way you behave in public in front of the cameras is also important. Different teams will prefer different attitudes, and the way you act in front of the press could determine where you go in the future.
Pick A Lower Tier Team
Although you might be tempted to pick one of the more popular teams out there, it would be a good idea to pick a team not so well established. This will allow you to steadily develop your car and team and there’s no better feeling than catching up to the big teams out there.
Pay Attention To Your Tyres
Your car’s tyres in the game play a very important role in the game but they can easily wear out if you’re not careful. To learn more about how the tyres work in the game, you should check out the practice programmes in the game and you will be able to understand the basics of how tyres work.
Complete All Sessions
Completing tasks in practice sessions is a great way to earn resource points and it will help you get some much needed progression. The resource points allow you to develop your vehicle, so if you’re having any problems keeping up with the competition, make sure you check out the practice sessions.
Focus On Achieving Targets
Your team will have certain targets and beating these targets is a surefire way to keep your team happy. If you keep missing these targets, then you can eventually be missed from the team because of a low reputation.
Create A Rivalry
Having a rivalry is a good way to amp up the drama in the game. The game will select a rival for you, and if you are able to successfully beat your rival, then you might be able to replace him for his team.
