Day 5 recollections jag e type event, my PR56.2

5.1 was a tough one as i pushed very hard, and off track lots.. Could hardly be in 1st at the start of final lap (3 short laps)

But there is a silver lining.. Most likely the bot behind you will slow drastically as you both pass the backmarker, try and line it up so that the 2nd place bot is in line with the backmarker..

Quite hard anyways, as you cant go off track all day:( Took me at least 5 cloud restores..

5.2 was relatively easy, i think elimination with 109mph limit..

Trick to remember here is in "unknown corners", where u didnt have a chance to test braking points and distance, use the bot in front of you to crash into and slow you down more.. With bit of luck they will also go wide and you go thru..

No idea where the braking point is..

So i line up directly behind, and when i see brakes on, i brake.. Which is too late, so bot gets one from behind

Momentum of the shove takes him bit deeper and i cut in on inside..

5.3 is very hard, as you have to skid for 14secs.. My plan was to get to front, then skid and hold them.. Zoe did get in front of me, and really it looked lost.. I was gaining on the last straight, but not fast enough.. So i aimed my car directly at and across hers, and she blinked!!? She slowed just enough for me to somehow win without off track..

I took the inside, trying to get to 1rst fast..

I will overspeed a bit, to swing to the outside, using the black bot to bounce off..

I will colide with white bot as i take the inside.. With bit of luck a damaged bit will be slower..

Track is wide here, so overspeed a tad and start the slide by jerking the car a tad..

And here she goes.. I got 3 to 4secs here, on and off the gas..

You can also get 1sec here, its a slow corner..

I made a mistake and let Zoe go by.. Almost retired here..

Gaining but not fast enough.. So i started to "cut across from behind"

And she slowed!?:) I went off track just as i passes the finish line.. Very lucky..

5.5 win without overheating.. No real worry the temp, just do some fast lifting of the gas even in corners.. I was one bar in red, so bit more harder..

Probably around the time you will need to drive..

Hit the brake when white line comes in view, then "slalom" thru first few cars.. Top 4 should be in sight after that..

2nd vital braking point, as my car is about to pass that shadow on the curb just ahead (enlarge the pic)

Last chicane.. Dont be afraid to 'pinball', by overspeeding and bouncing off the bot..

Screenshot 2016-09-04-02-21-21 com.ea.games.r3 row

And boom.. Bot bounces out, and you bounce in.. If bot wasnt there i'd be flying off track..
