Excruciating GT5 race...

The VW SambaBus lap on the top gear track is the most excruciating race ever...

1 wrong shift and you are miles behind and dead when you run off the track. Not very Top Gear.

The AMG Driving Academy is nice, though.

I had a blast doing the AMG stuff, also the karting and NASCAR challenges were surprisingly fun.

That VW race is nothing compared to the international license final race around Rome with a bunch of slow ass old cars that can't handle. Even if someone else crashes into you, -you- get disqualified. Fuck that.

Practice working your way up the field. It's worth it, if you get gold you unlock the Top Gear track for arcade and practice mode. I just did it, hard as hell but soooo worth it.

The Elise race sucks BALLS. I can't even tap the brakes without the car going out of control.

MR cars are difficult to master. Easy on the brakes entering the turn, easy on the throttle exiting.

I had better luck on the Elise one. Just have to control the slide and cut the corners as close as possible.

The Elise is so sensitive when you lift off the throttle in a turn. It feels as if the wheels always have to be loaded to keep it stable. I think the trick is to not lift entirely and just brake with your left foot. Saying it is one thing though, doing it is another.

After so many tries I finished 2nd, crossing the line sideways...

The SambaBus one was frustrating, but there were a couple points on the track where you could make up shitloads of time. Other than that, it was kinda frustrating.

The Elise challenge was frustrating on a whole new level. Sucks setting up for a corner just to have the dbag in front of you cut over and slam on his brakes so early. That had me pissed as hell.
