GPRO Grand Prix Online Racing – Understanding Driver Feedback

2

GPRO - Grand Prix Racing OnlineFirst a bit of the background for those who do not know GPRO (Grand Prix Online Racing). Its an online racing game site which is akin to Formula 1 racing, however there are no animations. You don’t use keyboard to race – the race itself is automated. The game is loosely based on past gaming experiences, incorporating the concepts, knowledge and experience of previous (classic) F1 manager games. Blending this knowledge with a high degree of innovative concepts and ideas, the game is unique in the world of F1 management games.

I have been participating in GPRO for some years now and it is always challenging to understand the driver feedback for qualifying and to gauge the settings.

Drive Feedback for Qualifying.

Tip: Have a driver with good technical insight, which helps in getting good driver feedback while qualifying and testing.

Based on your Driver feedback, understand the level and make changes accordingly.
