    Team racing

    Post by Racerluc on Wed 08 Aug 2012, 2:20 am

    I can't race that often, so if I join a race series there's a chance that I would miss some races.
    The idea is that my son, Jo, and I should race as a one car team, he can race when I wouldn't be able to race...
    I hope this will be allowed by you guys, please? Pretty please? Shocked

    Personally, I don't see why this would be a problem Smile

    And whilst you mention it, (providing nobody objects) I'll propose the same idea to other club members. If anyone wishes to team up, since I know we wont all be able to make every race then I'd imagine that would be fine too. However, my one concern is that it would limit the number of entries, but that shouldn't be a massive problem.

    Fine with me too.

    Just out of interest Luc, do you and Jo race together on the same xbox? I sometimes race with my Father online (he lives in the UK and I live in Sweden), and its never quite the same when we meet up and race split-screen on the same console, due to having fewer options in the way of race customising (e.g. limited to just two AI cars, that you can't even specify...) For us, the experience always seems better racing on separate consoles, but of course this might be impractical when people live in the same household. Not yet having any children of my own, this isn't an issue for me, but I just wonder sometimes whether it could make sense to have more than one console in a household for that sort of reason. Of course this would bring other problems such as requiring a second TV and perhaps being located in separate rooms of the house when playing together! Apologies for veering off-topic, and also my apologies if this comes across as too nosey - please just tell me to mind my own business in that case! It's just something that I often wonder about when racing split-screen.

    @ Rudyard; We never race together, I just can't focus with that split screen Embarassed

    I'm in the same boat as you Luc, I cannot play split-screen. On any game for that fact. Which sort of ruins it, because it's nice to play with people who are in the same room, but I get so distracted by it.

    I agree re the split-screen. I also find it harder when trying to listen to your engine tone for correct gear change moments. The other player's car is a distraction.

    Anyway, apologies for de-railing the thread.
