Not the most serious racing game, but from time to time I do a round on need for speed carbon. Some of the circuits on it do pose a challenge.

Assetto Corsa tech preview for now, beta will be released shortly.

Some PS3 F1, I think it's called Championship edition 2010 or something similar.
The machinery is connected to three pedals setup with Logitec paddle shifter steering wheel and projected on a wall 3x2 meters. Not bad, but I still prefer lightweight (900 kg) Ford Puma around a real track, M3 E46 or kart racing.

I have GT5 on PS3. My brother and I have played it so many times we cannot even look at its cover anymore :mrgreen: Now we are waiting for GT6 which is going to be released on December. On PC we play F1 2013, Grid 2 and NFS Most Wanted (the new version). NFS Rivals is also coming in only a few days.

Crammonds games are excellent, but not perfect if it makes any sense :) I think i played his games more than any other - be it racing sims or some other genre. Grand Prix Legends with it's 1965 mod is fantastic too. However, the best racing game/sim i ever played is iRacing hands down. I never experienced anything like it. I did not move towards upper tiers but even in rookie championships it's a great great game to play, tons and tons of fun. On two wheels GP 500 reigns supreme, and it's a huge shame it has remained undisputed for fifteen friggin years...

Been through all the Grand Prix series on PC and i loved the 1979 mod. Gp4 is one game where the setup of the car was actually very adjustable with realistic effects on the car handling. Its a shame it lost out to the Arcade physics F1 games...

I currently play GTR2 with a hell of a lot of mods-about 80GB worth and it takes a while to load. Theres lots of F1 seasons available, some better than others and theres still a fair amount of online multiplayer going on. Rfactor probably has the lead from what i hear with more development now.

My favourite was GP4 with the 1991 mod. Never heard a better engine sound in a racing game. Needless to say I always played Senna. :D
Played all the others from the series aswell. All excellent at their times.

Apart from Crammond's games, the ones I enjoyed most were Gran Turismo 3 and 4 on the old PS2.
