    They won´t add the kart track according to marcel, iirc. Maybe it has to be licensed separately.

    Might have missed this but is there any plans to add the Full Endurance pitlane to it?

    There are already two versions, one of which is the endurance version, where you have to drive the whole length of the pits, and then exiting up at Eau Rouge / Radillon. Which endurance version do you mean?

    Just finished a replica 2020 6 hour at Spa, 3 hours, 1330 start 2x time acceleration. Great work on the track Studio 397.:cool: I didn't notice ai cars not passing lapped traffic on the pit in lap, must have been fixed. Hopefully the other tracks will be fixed also.

    Love this track, and runs well on my old (???) i7 7700 and 1070. The detail is just awesome.

    I may as well add to the others asking......please do a decent modern Bathurst.

    Ah, i couldnt find any screenshots about it, haven't got the track yet as the selling point would be the endurance pitlane for me :) (on a very tight budget lately). Thanks for confirming!

    I am trying very hard to like this track visually it is spectacular but for offline racing it’s well not spectacular...

    the AI consistently lose their rear on the sweeping curves and when they hit the curbs they seem to lose all control The gt3 are by far the worst but I have seen gte cars doing something similar it’s all very frustrating... maybe it’s just me ?

    Like I said it’s visually amazing but nothing kills immersion more than coming around every second corner and finding yet another AI crash has blocked the road!

    I do hope 397 have not forgotten their offline racing customers altogether and are doing something about this... all the other DLC tracks have been top shelf this one for me unfortunately is a massive disappointment

    GT3's are poor when controlled by the AI at many tracks. I think they mis-behave more than other cars, don't know why tho. Try the GTE cars see how they do.

    Yeah I did and they were going ok but they still have frustrating issues and in the end spa is about the 24 hour race so I would think gt3s performing at this track would have been high on 397 priorities... I guess Le Mans and Nurburgring have been so enjoyable and I had high hopes for Spa and it’s just been disappointment

    which also raises my suspicion that offline experience is not really important to 397 atm

    and before I get back in my box it makes it worse when I can run 60 apex gt3 cars and have a really enjoyable experience tight racing with few AI incidents

    I had a 24 lap race with 21 GT3 AI set at 100. Personally didn't see any major incidents or heard 'yellow flag' too often. I qualified 3rd, worked my way to 1st, led for a few laps while two close behind, then pitted in lap 13 but completely screwed up my pit entry and took far too long. Came out in 20th & finished 19th.

    I've not seen the GT3 cars crash "on every other corner", they do have a few problems but for the most part I've raced without major issues against them,
    try these basics;
    - backup/move your player.json file
    - run the Sim and let it create a fresh player.json
    - let the track Rubber in
    - make sure you let the AI Qualify
    - now see what happens.

    If you're still having problems please post your exact AI settings, #of AI, #of individual GT3 Cars (how many Audi, Merc, BMW etc). Thanks

    You can lower also ai mistakes in the player.json, if it is more than 0.

    I’ve run the GTEs with no issues with AI. That’s with a full 57 car grid. The GT3s are rubbish no matter the grid size but not all GT3 cars. Running AI calibration did nothing, giving the AI a custom setup did nothing. Remove the Merc and Porsche and you’ll have a much better outcome. The Merc cannot ride the curbs. The Porsche I’ve seen randomly swerve and do a tank slapper a couple times, bizarre! It also can’t ride the curbs at the first chicane. I can’t see how adjusting the track AIW will fix the GT3 AI issues. The Mercs problems are well known I would think by now but if not, watch a replay of it lapping spa with the other brands and see how differently it behaves.

    Yes I agree... i should clarify I think my GTE issues were actually LMP2 issues impacting the GTE's but I have seen GTE's almost tip when hitting a curb but its nothing like the GT3's...also I can run 60 apex gt3 cars and 45 enduracer cars (seperately I mean) with default setup and no special prep (eg changing json files etc) and both of these have had minimal AI issues. All very frustrating for offline use...

    The more we advance in time, the more we realize that AI and offline experience are a huge problem.

    S397 will take care of this, the question is when (it is urgent) and with what seriousness and commitment.

    Can you fix a fix in Spa please? The AI always stops to change tires during rain races. Even if I let the training and qualifying go through. It's very frustrating. I want to race in the rain.
