Quote Michael.png
Welcome to the Brooklyn Street Circuit in New York! This tight, technical circuit overlooks New York City-not that you'll have much time to look at the scenery this weekend!

Today's Shakedown will let the team run some basic tests on the car, but more importantly, you'll be able to learn the track with less pressure. Eric will walk you through today's schedule. Good luck!
— Michael, Manager
Quote Eric.png
Thanks Michael-he's right in saying that this track is narrow. We're racing on actual roads, so there's only a handful of real overtaking opportunities.

If you're not already, you will need to drive with manual acceleration enabled. Our default control preference is Tilt B, but you can experiment with a different layout within the Controls menu in the Settings.

— Michael, Manager
Quote Eric.png
Michael's right–the track is a bit dusty from the nearby Port. Your first few laps will have reduced grip, so keep it tidy and out of the walls for your first laps.

Excellent. We're good to go. Next few tasks will focus on your racecraft-a lot of lap time can be gained just from improving your skills around this narrow track.

Of course, we'll be making sure that everything you do out there will be squeaky clean-the races here have a high chance of collisions... Hopefully you won't be one of them today!

We'll be fighting for clear air ahead of us around this circuit-if somebody else makes a mistake in front of you, it will ruin our lap

Great effort-we got piped right at the end of the session by three tenths. P2.

Race Control is still looking at the apparent incident. We've put through our case already, so hopefully it will be resolved without issue so we can focus on the race.

In the meantime, clear your head and prepare for the race. It's going to be a tough one!

Quote Eric.png
So I come with some good news, and some bad news. The bad news is that we got a grid penalty, so we're starting P10.

The good news is that there's only 14 cars that can potentially crash into your rear into the hairpin at the start of the race.

...I mean that's good news, right? It could have been 22! Anyway, good luck out there, we're going to need it to come out in one piece...

There's four retirements, so the field will likely spread out for the back half of the race with the extra space on the track. Getting a win will be difficult with less traffic...
