The brakes hold up to this behaviour pretty well, the six-speed manual 'box is sweet and intuitive, even the engine feels surprisingly keen to rev when it's fully let off the leash. Sadly, that steering issue and the big layer of understeer present during steady-state cornering undermine the 320d Sport's 'sporty' credentials.
1 November Stirred by the thrilling title-clincher in Mexico, Motorsport Manager is back! Meet the Endurance Series DLC – the massive new mode we’ve been dying to add to the game, bringing a whole new, thrilling Endurance Championship to your MM experience.
With six drivers per team to manage, an entirely new stamina system and some of the most beautiful cars in racing, we’ve taken this one up to the top step of the podium. What’s more, it’s out now! Alongside, to mark coming up to a year since Motorsport Manager launched and thank our loyal and incredible community (that’s you!), we’ve released the Anniversary Update – a large, free add on which will bring fully-fledged pit crews to the game. More info and buy on Steam -> Free update patch notes: • Players can now manage the speed and safety of their pitstops through the new pit crew feature • Pit crew members have 5 core stats: Tyres, Part Fixing, Refuelling, Front Jack and Rear Jack. Their stat levels determine the speed at which they can perform each task • Crew members will become fatigued after each race and will need to be placed 'In Recovery' to regain their stamina. Tired crew members are more likely to make mistakes • As well as time mistakes, there are now new, job-specific pit mistakes: Wrong tyre compound fitted, underfuelled, front and rear jack damage and part fixing red-zone increase • Catastrophic mistakes are new, rare mistakes that can drastically alter the outcome of a race. There are 2 catastrophic mistakes: Loose wheel and pit fire (only if refuelling is active) • If a pit fire occurs, there is a chance that the car will be retired from the race.
Pit fire retirements can have a psychological impact on the driver • The pit crew can be automanaged by your mechanics. A mechanic's Pitstop and Concentration stats impact how effectively they will auto-manage your pit crew • Car cornering stats impacting the simulation have been re-worked to reduce emphasis on the top speed of the engine.
This makes low, medium and high cornering speeds more dependant on the Front Wing, Suspension and Rear Wing • Driver form now has a larger impact in a race weekend's performance. About This Game • The ultimate management game for fans of motorsport.
