I finally reached level 30 to unlock the X1 Sebastian Vettel challenge after doing 3 Indy 500 races. The Minolta Toyota can easily take the corners flat, so what I did was put some tape on the X button on the joypad and then I made a nice playlist on my Iphone, so it was actually quite relaxing to do the race like that with cruise control. It takes around 2 hours and 23 minutes and you get 268.000 XP points so I think it is the fastest way to get points. Money wise it is alot better to do the shorter races over and over again.
The X1 challenge is very difficult. It feels like you have to go so fast just to beat the bronze time, and the car is crazy to drive because it is so fast. The speed is something you have to get used to. The guy who can drive that car consistantly close to the limit, without going off, has my full respect. The grip is insane, with traction control on 0 you can still floor it out of slow corners and E.g. 130R is taken flat out so easily, likewise with the Schumacher S on Nurburgring.
I didnt keep track of time but I think it took me 2-3 hours to complete. You have to drive 2 laps on Nurburgring, Monza and Suzuka. Monza was quite easy and Nurburgring was much harder but Suzuka for me was by far the most difficult. I think I spent twice as much time on that one than the others combined. Having read that you have to go very fast to beat the times, my approach was to go fast right from the start, so I crashed alot. But it meant that when I reached the finish for the first time at Monza and Suzuka I got bronze and at Nurburgring it was by the second finish.
The GT part of the game is basically finished for me so now there is only online racing left. Hope to see some of you guys online
