Sorry to Doobs & Seanus for the incident in race 2. I was up in the air spiralling and came down nose first into the grass by the fence.
Didn't even realise I'd landed on another car. Continued on with a damaged car, which wasn't too bad to drive considering my flying
lesson, and actually made it up 7th then got taken out by another car's spin. Not so lucky with damage this time... 2nd last
Good night though, had some good battles. Zandvoort should be interesting in these.
Yes Joe the distance does get a bit blurry on the Vive. Compared to a normal monitor nowhere near as clear & crisp, but it's
still pretty respectable, and the immersion factor is something else. I couldn't go back to triples unless I had to. Dave O.

Sorry about the coming together in race 1 Freezer didn't do either of us any good. I tried to leave enough room but
that corner tends to take you wide. I'm running in VR and unfortunately virtual mirror and name tags won't show in VR
so until your post I wasn't even sure who I'd tangled with. Dave O.

Did a couple laps, track I dont think is ready for a main series run for a fun run? wont tell you much about the cars. Visually its not horrible but those low poly bumps all over the track surface are so annoying I will give this round a miss.
The bumps do make it interesting, and a bit of a challenge, but I actually really enjoy this track. Great atmosphere and sense of speed.
With the accent on fun run it could be a great candidate. Keeps you on your toes. Dave O.
Be interested to hear how you find it if you download Freezer. I really like the physics & force feedback.
Seems reasonably easy to drive, but can definitely bite you if you overstep the limits. I'm still trying to
come to grips with handling the ERS side of it too many buttons lol. Dave O.
Just wondering if anyone else here has tried the Formula Hybrid 2017 mod from RaceSimStudio for Assetto Corsa?
I've been keeping an eye on it for a little while, and it's had some great reviews, so purchased it a couple of days ago
and have to say it's probably one of the best mods I've driven in AC. If your into F1 it's definitely worth giving it a go.
There is a 2017 skin pack for it on Race Dept. Cost me roughly $6 au to purchase the mod and it's the best $6 bucks
I've ever spent. More info here http://racesimstudio.com/ Off to do some more laps with it Cheers Dave O.

I notice the bumps from about T3 - T7. It takes a few laps to get accustomed every time I get in there.
Your call no editing required, just a tick in the box, thought it might be worth a try

I don't think I could go back monitors after VR it really is something else
I reckon it would be too much hassle to just switch between both.

Yeah had the Vive for a few weeks actually Wally but had no end of problems trying to get it up and running when I first got it.
Turned out to be my PC was the the problem in the end. Passed the Steam vr test no problem, but it wouldn't run the Vive.
I upgraded PC to a i7 7700k and a 1070GTX and all is good now. Would have signed up for this season but not sure if it would
it would handle a field of 20-30 drivers. I don't think I could go back monitors after VR it really is something else, but very resource
hungry Cheers Dave O.

The bounciness of this track makes me feel a bit queasy for the first few laps while wearing my Oculus Rift.Where is it bouncy? Maybe you notice it more in the Rift.
Try lock camera to horizon in visual settings Works for me with Vive, Dave O.
