I’ve ranked up to Level 17 now, but I’m starting to run out of races to participate in. Some need me to buy a new car (which I tried doing via the auctions, but again they just frustrated me), but most need me to be on level 20.
Raced a few more races, mainly by hiring drivers. It’s the game that plays itself! You earn in-game credits for sitting on the toilet. Excellent.
I did drive a few myself though, including one on the hardest settings with all assists off, without touching the brake, and with the accelerator jammed down full the entire time. Ace. That netted me three achievements for the one race!
