Driving sessions will usually start from the pits. Only race sessions will place your car on the starting grid, but if you join an online race already started you’ll be placed again in the pits. Pay attention to the fact that, by default, there is a speed limit of 80KPH for normal sessions and 120KPH for race sessions in the pitlane (other series/championships may impose different limits).
Control the car using the controls assigned in the Input menu. By using the keys or buttons assigned, you can also change view, follow opponents’ cars, show standings info and enter Replay Mode. Clicking the mouse button will display some info on tyres and fuel, you may use this menu to change tyres or fuel amount in the pits.
Note: you cannot enter Replay Mode during online sessions.
At any time you can return to the main VGP3 simulation screen by pressing the ‘ESC’ key.
