The GT Academy events are self-contained. They have their own leaderboards with very specific cars. Read the post and visit the site for GT Academy, it will explain everything.

I know, I participated in the previous GT academy and was 110 overall in the Portuguese leaderboards with a DS3. 

That's why I asked if your times had been done with either a pad or a wheel and if it was difficult for you to reach those times. I've already golded the Sebastian Vettel X1 Challenge and I drive with a DFGT, so I was trying to get a kind of measure of how much I can improve in this GT academy.

Personally, I just used a controller. I like racing games, but I'd never buy a wheel. Played on a few at some friends' houses, but never wanted one myself.



the wheel is important imo



used the GT by citroen concept in the dream car championship everything went okay till lap 9 on the monza course when it ran out of power ,i thought being non endurance races that don't wear tyres or use petrol it would be the same for the battery but the gauge was right down so i limped into the pits after doing half a lap at 80kmh only to find that i could change my tyres and nothing else wtf!

As far as I know, the Concept car is powered by a Hydrogen cell, which depletes constantly during a race. Same thing happens with a pure electric car, such as the Tesla.

The GT by Citroen is powered by an ultra efficient electric motor mounted amidship behind the drivers seat along with the battery, but the real point is if petrol and tyres aren't consumed except for the endurance races then it should be the same for the electric powered cars, a simple fix would be for them to make the amount of energy gained by regenerative braking equal loss due to acceleration or at least make it so you can complete championships with the car

That would certainly fix that problem. I was just talking about how the same thing happened with me when I took the Tesla Roadster in one of the Professional events.

It handles like a charm, but it's acceleration that's really what makes it stand-up.

Since it's an electric car, it's always outputting the maximum torque available, thus it has the acceleration of a super-car.
