Reno Races

Recommended Posts

I didnt think the Reno races would be for me, but out of curiosity I checked it out on you tube and thought I will give it a go, so I bought the basic package ............OMG, I love it! It is highly competitive, very difficult, demands a lot of concentration and very addictive. You could say I am hooked. I am off to practice lol 😎

Yep, same for me! Didn't want to spend too much on it as I wasn't sure if it was going to be my thing but I think its great fun! I am terrible at it and only just had my first race where I've actually gained points rather than lost.. but its highly addictive to keep joining quick matches to try and get a better result!

I would enjoy this, but I haven't purchased it. Considering how little time I have to spend with the sim, and usually around 11pm when I do get a chance, apart from rare weekends, it doesn't seem worth my spending the money. A shame.

I think that's the beauty of this expansion though. The races are only 10 or so minutes in length, so you can just fire it up and do a race or two if you're limited for time.

The only slight disappointment for me is the fact that I haven't done a race yet without empty slots. The lobbies don't seem that busy which is a shame. Maybe it's just the times I'm flying.

That's good information. It just takes longer than that to boot up the sim 😆

I downloaded the entire aircraft package and the expansion pack but I don't seem to get any races? I set Reno Stead as airport of departure and see the stands but they're all empty like I turned up at the wrong time. What's the trick to get this working guys? 

Cheers

I bought the full package and got myself 40 new aircrafts. Nice. You have to go to Activities to join races.
