    1. I start the game as usual, where I'm presented with "Join the Competition" (first screenshot)
    2. I click on the link, where I'm presented with "Launch the Event" (second screenshot)
    3. I click on the Green Box, where I'm presented with "Verify Your Email" (third screenshot)
    4. I enter my email address, the box goes away, then nothing ... still no email providing a code after 4 hours
    5. Through the game, I can enter "Competitions", where I'm presented with another "Launch" button (fourth screenshot)
    6. I click on the Box, where I'm presented with "Verify Your Email" (fifth screenshot)
    7. And the process begins again

    Well although I shall burn in hell for eternity, I like it and I like it a lot.
    A totally different challenge but the outcome is the same, hit your brake points, clip the apex and smile all the way to the next turn. If you love driving, you will love this car, just don't forget to wind the music right up. I'm finding Overkill by the delightful Motorhead my perfect ID.R accomplement. :cool:

    Maybe we can create a new thread in style of the off topic thread "Great Tracks" - "Great ID.R. driving tracks" :)

    Edit: or more general "E-Music"

    One of my go-to driving tracks in general, but fits the ID.R very nicely:

    From 3:30 you can even hear an ID.R. gaining speed with some weird power cut-offs starting at 3:57 :D

    Unfortunately, that isn't true. I really love driving, and driving fast. But I really hate this car. It just feels soulless to me. I know it's "different" and is probably the future of racing, but to me a car with no soul is like a guitar with no strings... impossible to enjoy. Give me something with a tenth of the performance and a roaring soul any day of the week.

    "Electric Wizard" should fill the void of Sound pretty well

    Pretty sure, back in the days they've said something similar about first E-Guitars ;)
    I' m surely not propagating progress just for the progress sake, doing things just because you can do them (think of Hiroshima,) blindly believing in some weird kinda "innovative solution" which has brought a lot of misery as well as real "progress"...
    Tho I just took one lap on NoS, driving this car was like sailing ! (grown up at the coast). No noise (which on a subconscious level generates additional stress - sry to say it this way :) ), you can hear your enviroment, those impressions driving around a track like Nordschleife. All I miss is shifting, which gives me a better sense of control, felt a bit weird, like driving a car wih Variomatic (DAF, Volvo). Quiet relaxing and very "enviromental" - nothing against that ;)...
    But the missing "Roaring Thunder" definitely leaves a gap in terms of sensation & excitement - much more for the audience then for the driver who is still taming a Racecar - just without "Noise"...could be a job for Sound Designers ;)

    This is the future of race or simulation??? Sorry, but this is not my future...
    I hear and drove the car in the morning and I think I play GT6. :flushed::rage:
    Sorry, but the sound can not be the future for all racers and racing fans!!!
    More of such cars with this sound and I play other games... :(

    Sorry!!! :disrelieved:

    You guys miss the most important bit about that car - that you can go full speed at reverse

    is it just me.....as a kid…..I'd race anything with wheels on it. skateboards, rollerskates, inline skates, cycles, trikes, and when I couldn't get any wheels, I'd pretend. Personally don't care what it is so long as I can race or challenge myself / others ;O)
