I've just bought two new games: Day of Defeat: Source (but you probably aren't interested in this) and DTM3 (that's more like it)!
DTM3 is very nice Stunning graphics, very nice sound, good control over the cars, ... Though it is primary a circuit racer, it has some very nice off road championships! (For example: Group N championship, Mitsubishi Rally Tour, and also buggies, ...) Though I still need to play with these, I think this game is worth the buy! Over 80 different racing circuits, q70 licenced cars and up to 21 cars on the road at a time! I especially like the massive crashes and when that happens, flags are drawn out I'll keep you up to date sometimes when I progress more through the game!
Yeah ToCa3 is an amazing game. I bought it for PS2 and bought it at the same day it was released. Its a really nice racing game and it has a lot of classes to play and the game is really good and worth of every penny.
When you enter to online then the real challence will start. Offcourse there are some bad players also and offcourse the so called crashers but if you dont want to play at sessions were collision is on you can search the one where them are off and the competitors are like chost cars.
hmmm,the hairpin you mean is going to little bit downhill at the game and you need to brake for it quite a lot but after all its quite easy to drive on sim but with more speed you probably go out and damage your car. In pro sim havent tried it.
But what I watch to real track map its looks quite a same. Also I dont remember the last years race so by that cant say is it close but I think it is.
