Moving up to the next series, Speed Without Limits.
The only choice of vehicle that was offered was the McLaren P1, which came in a certain shade of orange....
....nearly matching another McLaren I own, in another game I play.
Rio de Janeiro isn't a totally new track to me, I have experienced it before, a few trial runs in Free Play mode. A tricky course, with well placed bumps to lose traction on and corners with interesting angles.
Nevertheless, I wanted to take the P1 out and see how well I could do, cold with no practice in the car.
According to the ingame counter, :57 is where things started to go totally wrong. The game started to lock up, just giving me windows of mere micro-seconds, to try and correct what was about to happen, or brace for impact. After about 20 seconds of that, the game recovered and I was able to pick up the recording to finish the race. Check out the video here https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_nB8uIPLTCc
I doubt a body shop would give me any kind of deals on the repairs.
The best part? Despite the technical issues and some pretty poor driving on my part, I pulled off a top three standing in the end!
