    "Assetto Corsa is recognized as one of the top racing games. Although reviews indicate it is less of the best simulation racing game and more of a fantastic vehicle model with the game built upon it. Assetto Corsa will make you feel like you are driving the actual vehicle on a real track. The presentation is kind of crude outside the races themselves, but on the track it's exactly what it needs to be... right down to some terrific AI driving. These aren't slot-car drivers, but convincing opponents who will overcook it going into a turn, lose control as they try to get back onto the track, and even give you a love-tap as you race side-by-side through a turn. It's definitely a great option for people who need something that combines modern, attractive graphics and good AI with high-fidelity simulation. "

    "I like this as it takes me right to a place to buy it. The site has a lot of useful information and is what I like seeing. The problem I see is that I can just open up amazon type the same phrase and come up with the same game without using the search. If the search is going to do something like this I would want to see a lineup of a couple different sales sites for the game as opposed to showing me amazon. I mean this program would operate like me putting on suspenders and then a belt on a pair of sweat pants. just not needed."

Rear tire management can be an issue so finding the balance between aggressiveness and smoothness can be the key to the victory. This third round will take place at Rouen Les Essarts.
