I'd like to learn race driving, and since I don't have enough money and since it's not my first passion, I practice with simulators.
The one I'm playing with now is Raceroom Racing Experience from SimBin, but I believe the question should apply to simulators and driving games in general.
My question is, since the main issues I have are concerning the race line and gear shifting, is it considered best to use manual or automatic transmission?
I know it's kind of subjective, but being a common topic I think that some informed advice should be possible.
NOTE: I already know how to drive with a manual gearbox, but in my only experience on a track I noticed that I could hardly keep the right gear for every corner, and I experienced the same trouble with games. So please consider previous experience with manual gearbox (in normal life driving).
