New Kart Track: PFI Grantham, UK
Welcome to PFI. The 2017 World Championship Kart Track, and one of Europe's premiere race tracks. Known for its under and over Litchfield Bridge and two fast straights, it is extremely technical with lots of overtaking opportunities, and sections where time can be won, or lost.
As with all UK tracks, weather plays a big part in your race strategy and planning. Here though, skill is the over-riding factor!
PFI is available in all tiers of the game.
Check out the real world track too.
XBOX and PS4 Controller Support
In this release we’ve added support for Playstation and Xbox controllers to hugely enhance your enjoyment and playing experience. Controls:
Left Stick - steering
Right Stick - look around
Left Trigger - brake
Right Trigger - accelerate
Y/Triangle - call a marshal
Options - quit
A/X & X/Square - navigate race prep menus
We’ve added details in the video above on how to link up the controllers but there’s a full guide in the support docs too.
We’ve done lots of testing with both the PS4 DualShock Controller and the Xbox Controller and here’s our advice:
PS4 requires a much lower controller sensitivity than the Xbox
Xbox will need a higher sensitivity due to the range of travel in the left thumbstick.
You can adjust your setting in Race Prep using the left slider
If you need more lock INCREASE the sensitivity - e.g. Las Vegas has very tight corners
If the track is fast REDUCE the sensitivity - e.g. Bondi
Use Solo Practice to test on different tracks
