This glitch seems to happen nearly all the time ,I'm using manual gears with auto clutch when I change from 2nd to 3rd it goes straight to the red line and you've got to go straight into 4th but you only get top speed of 108-9 mph constantly hitting the Rev limiter. Other times the gears seem to work fine and you get a much higher top speed ?

I've noticed the Mk1 sometimes duplicates gear ratios across gears, so when you change gear, it's like putting it into the same gear again.

Check your ratios in your setup before races.

Could you please check whether there's differences between the game modes? In other words, could you please give the exact steps for reproduction?

It was on Xbox one during first season of career after winning the Clio cup during the historic touring cars 4 race series using the game Pad

Okay, good to know. Could you please try driving the Escort again in another mode, f.e. in a solo practice session and report whether the same happens again?

Oh, and when you drive the Escort the next few times, please check the car setup before leaving the pits and look for oddities in the gearing setup.

I've tried it in free practice and solo race on the same tracks as the career races ie oultonpark,donington etc it was fine

I`ve got the same gearing glitch in the same race after the rookie career.
In all other races it was good - looks like there is something wrong in these career races

exactly the same here, xbox one, game controler, did clio cup then ginetta g4 then alternate clasic touring and caterham on which from escort at brandshatch onwards noticed both cars have middle gears the same ratio, have to go into setup first every time to alter, i might add on choice i miss practise and go to quali

If this happens just go to setup and make sure the gears are staggered, i have had it in other classes. For some reason you will have 2 gears in the same point on sliders

Same issue during carrer mode for me with the mk1

Ditto, my mk1 is putting 2nd and 3rd gear at the same ratio. I've tried to adjust the setup, save, resave, and overwrite it several times to no avail.

This happened to me. Escort
Scenario:
Practice. Ran 30 minutes no issue (never went back to pits)
do quali- (I was running completely stock and not changing set ups at all) and the fuel for quali is low amount. Not enough to finish quali session - when I come back into pits - click return to put box. Change the fuel. Click drive. Now my gears are different. Final drive was changed and 3rd gear.
Went back to pit box and Reset to default. And ok.

This happened 3 out of 3 times in historic UK tc. (Oulten park, brands hatch and silverstone international)

(I know having a low amount of fuel is good - ran out during quali after 6 laps or so and wanted more to continue session- I'm simply pointing out the steps that seem to make this glitch with gears happen)
