picked a race, didn't change any conditions, race is started after sunset again, which i don't like because it's hard to see. it took a while, but then i realised the car doesn't illuminate the road ahead.

it's cool to see the headlights in the mirror, but it kinda makes night racing difficult.

Map a button for headlights? :)
Its hard to see chasing car's headlights in the rear view mirror until they're close enough. Still they're dim.

I was thinking the same thing. Even with the lights on the road is barely illuminated.

That screenshot is probably accurate. On the real road I don't even notice my headlights on the road until it's getting well dark, especially if there are other sources of lights like street lights. In the screenshot there are flood lights so you would barely see car headlights.

That said, I think even in the dead of night out on the back straight of lemans the lights should light things further down the road, however I expect that has performance implications.
