Update
B license  all gold
A license  all gold
IC license  8 gold, 2 silver
IB license  all silver
IA license  8 silver, 2 gold
S  license  2 gold, 5 silver, 3 bronze
Currenmtly at level 26, just.
Found out that a couple of the trophies you can get are surprizes! Hidden trophies in clude!! Rollover and total your car! And one that is proving to be harder than iy might seem, knock a part off your car. Yeah, smash the Veyron into a concrete barrier at 250 mph and it stays intact! Yeah right! Out side of that, I have 120 cars in my garage!
The side chalenge that I had sooo much fun with is the TOP GEAR challenge! First, the beginner level.  VW micro busses any one? The track at TOP GEAR is a figure 8 set up! I know, let's run 2 separate groups in 2 separate sections! Now the challenge is to not hit, or get hit! VW kubelwagons and schwimminwagons at 50 paces! I damn near fell out of my chair when the Kubelwagon directly in front of me got taken out by a schwimminwagon!

So if the 1st place guy was 21 laps ahead of the 2nd place guy, that must have put you at about 82 laps behind in last place?  :rofl3:

Got into the endurance segment of the game. 60 laps of Grand Valley, 4 Hours at Tsukuba, 90 laps at Laguna Seca, and then for S&G, did the 60 lap Grand Valley race again. The nail on my left thumb is separating and a hard calous is forming on the inside tips of my thumbs. Man I gotta get a wheel!

What do you think about the 3rd corner on Grand Valley? I always take it too wide and wind up scrubbing a lot of speed.

3rd corner, usually wide open, maybe tap the brakes with really fast cars or less sticky tires.

Well the issue is if you take it too wide, then you mess the entry line for the 4th corner.

I have the same problem with the Eiger Nordwand track on the 8th and 9th corners. You can't take those flat out or you'll be in the sand pits!
