Catchup mechanism basically means :
  • The closer you are to first position, the slower you go
  • The closer you are to last position, the faster you go

Such a mechanism was also in the other Rollcage games (could be toggled on/off). It modified your speed and grip.
In Grip, I know it modifies your speed for sure - but not that sure about grip (your ability to stay on-track)

It's present in a couple of other racing games as well.

Thanks, that explains a lot. Do most keep this on or off? If i can maintain control while in last place then id be happy to turn this on so it balances out the race

In RC we turn it on by default because it's nicely balanced.
In GRIP I turn it off because it slows you down dramatically and the game just gets boring like that :p

Yeah it needs work. Proper catch-up will be ready for the public release, no doubt
