I've just been googling about The Air of Experience trophy as my bobs just over half way yet doesent seem to be increasing at all.

This trophy has me confused.

Quote:
Filling this bar requires your driver to be active for 500 in-game days, and each race is one day in the game. Keep progressing your driver normally while working toward the level trophies and Gold Standard, and then if you find that you're still short of earning this trophy, play some of the early events in the Beginner Series (Sunday Cup is probably your best bet) multiple times until you get there.
From what I can tell you would have to race 500 races to get it to fill up? He's already at level 30 but Ive only raced 178 races and career bar is half full, but the arrow is already orrange and pointing down and I've done the indie speedway endurance 5 times now and his stats increase but the career bar doesnt so am I better starting over with a new driver?

The orange arrow is temporary, it will fluctuate throught his career, sometimes it will be green and other times blue. Don't worry about it, I have never really noticed the arrows having much of an effect.

No, don't change your driver. I was in the same position a few weeks back but trust me, his career bar will fill. I had to do around 40 sunday cup races for my Bob to finaly fill his bar.

Ive not really noticed an effect myself. But it used to change but its been orrange for over a week now. Ive had bob since i started the game and have completed 405 races. But only 178 with bob. So it would seem his careers near the end of those 500 days but I havent used him enough as I mostly played a-spec :/

Thats true. Or just keep him online for remote races

Have you got the trophy? Were you lvl40 when you got it?

From my understanding, only drift and time trials got added, no new seasonals and no new ocd refresh. But I read there is an hour-long maintenance tonight, so maybe they'll be up then.

It just depends on what races you do with b-spec. I grinded the crap out of the dream car championship for $$$ before the recent update and got 500 races done before I was 36 b-spec, maybe even before I was 35. And there is no trophy for getting a driver to lvl 40, only the overall b-spec rank.

Edit: Unsure, but I don't think remote races add to the tally either. I think it has to be offline.

Yeah that was me but my boss let it pass because it was the Christmas party when he found it. Little did he know that after the New Year, I had it in a different office completing the Nurburgring 24 hr

Also remember that you running the indy endurance race only counts as 1 day. Running a two lap b-spec race will also count as one day. You get more experience points from the indy race but the two races count the same amount of passed time.

Your Bob only gains experience during B-spec days. Not A-spec, Licenses, Special events, ect. ONLY B-SPEC DAYS!

No, just 500 races combined between all your bobs since he was hired.

I loaded up a Simpsons Season 8 DVD and started it. I realised I needed to swap to the next disc and ejected it while it was loading. Put the new disc in and it YLoD'd when it loaded the new disc. I was able to get it to eject the DVD this moring though.

Good race today, DexterM's came first with Kjacobs' 2nd and mine 3rd. Mine also made up the most places with 9 and it was nice and close at the end with just 1.5 seconds between 1st and 3rd. The thing I'm finding with my drivers is they don't keep up a good pace. Mine was running a close second before Kjacobs' Bob caught him, he stayed with him for a while and at this point there was a big gap between 3rd and 4th. He then seemed to just slow down so dropped back to the pack behind, at which point he speeded up again and caught the leaders!
