Driver Behaviors

This guide is based on the excellent work of Phillip McNelley which is focused at racing Grand Prix Legends online. We have tried to contact Phillip to get his permission to adapt his work to our beloved rFactor, but couldn’t get in touch with him. This text can be found in different versions throughout the internet, which lets us believe the author doesn’t mind reproducing his work.
 
Since the release of rFactor many of us did a lot of online racing with it. The charm of racing human people instead of AI however sometimes gets overshadowed by differing interpretations of driving etiquette and limitations of the sim we drive. Some golden rules of racing which are set in real-life racing apply to online sim racing as well. In this article we’ll recommend driver behavior in an effort to let us all enjoy online racing. We’ll also pinpoint to certain limitations of online sim racing and of rFactor in particular. It might be a long read, but please do read it as we will benefit all from it.
