Just wondering if anyone else is finding Scene 8 impossibly difficult... you can't keep Clarkson behind you, he's disappearing 80 metres away in front of you... best I've managed is to beat him by 21 metres. Impossible!!!!

Take it slow round the first few bends and overtake him before you get to the straights. Just before the last straight/hill Clarkson slows down a bit. I finished with 117m lead but it took me a few tries.

On a side note: there is only the first episode of season 1 and 2. I seriously hope they release the rest of the episodes not just season 3 as I’m really enjoying it!

I've found success when using the cn_X button to drift around the turns I would need to slow down in, at one point in the beginning I was 200 meters ahead of him but still only managed to win by 69 meters.

Definitely agree this was the hardest one to get gold in.
A slight drift around the sharpest corner helped me carry the speed and I was able to overtake quickly while going down the hill to the finish.

Hopefully there will be some more episodes with different race types soon.

Yeah Scene 8 is hard, literally you have to have a flawless run, I ended up getting 125 meters ahead by the end.

The other thing I find odd about this one, is if he hits you in anyway or if you make contact, he does not slow down or anything in the slightest while you do. I’m still trying to get gold on this one.

This took me ages but drifting round the sharpest corners is definitely the way to go. I also slowed down ever so slightly on some corners rather than hitting anything.

Yes to NawtyCawty, once you get to the faster section and are going 170/180mph (from memory) there are small bends which can almost be taken without lifting off the accelerator, but not quite, so I would suggest a little brakes. You will lose some lead but as I mentioned above, the AI slows down at the bottom of the final hill/straight so you should regain your lead.

Just absolutely smashed this ... 162m ahead of him. Using cn_X is the way forward - I drifted round every corner I needed to brake at as suggested by The Heape, didn't touch the brakes once. It's easy with that method, just don't go off the tarmac and don't hit the barriers or you might as well restart cos he'll catch up.

Cheers guys!

I just made him crash somehow and I was massively ahead!

I didn’t have a problem at all... at one point I was like 80 meters ahead, then he caught up (within 10m) but the last few sections he drifted back to about 55/60 when I finished.

It is a bit random .. in some races Clarkson seems to be driving like a paralised drunken blind man and hits walls and such and in others he seems to have Lewis Hamilton DNA injected.
But if you have problems with this one , you’ll gona love the “rear view mirror” scène in s3e2

Just done that rear view mirror one and I would say it's worse than this!
Even the straight's are difficult laugh
