And it's great to see younger guys like yourself having a passion for GPL and improve all the time!
Well, it is fun to try and improve at something, and guys like you are the reason for me to keep going. If there was no competition that seems almost impossible to beat, my willingness to close up definitey wouldn't be at this level.
I still have so much to learn about driving styles... Even with my most recent improvement at Silverstone to a 1:26.91 which I achieved by studying your replay, I am still over a second off! Merging our replays has certainly helped, still I have to learn how to replicate "new" (so to say) driving patterns consistently. I am still way too eager at corner entry and therefore my exits suffer a lot, probably because I am lowkey frustrated with my inconsistency under braking; sometimes I can brake as late as the fastest guys, but more often I just overdo it.
There is so much to learn and I will probably only stop playing when my GPLRank is -100... a.k.a. never.
And even though the physics are a bit exploitable, especially with the original Papyrus '67s, the driving skills I learn here are applicable to other sims as well.
Also for reference, my hardware only barely allows me to run Assetto Corsa on the very lowest settings, so that factor also contributes to my GPL obsession. But the friendliness and respect that lives within this community make me so happy to be here, so I'm not even sure if other more modern sims are more enjoyable in multiplayer...
