I still have DiRT 3 and iRacing is finally going to release the new NW car next week, so I'll be busy with that

Overall SHIFT 2 is a great game, a nice distraction from iRacing. I prefer it over Forza and GT as a car game simply because it's available on the PC and takes advantage of all those PC bonuses. As a racing game, the crappy collision system and the sometimes misbehaving AI are big negatives.
SHIFT 2 is advertised as a racing game but in my opinion it only excels as a car game.



Lol, here's Steve Sutcliffe from autocar.co.uk driving that very same car (the GTR GT-1)
