That's normally happens because it hasn't finished installing.... but this sounds a bit different?

Doesn't sound different to me?
Isn't this what normally happens when the game hasn't fully installed yet?
It is on PS4 anyway...

Scroll over the Pcars icon in the xmb screen-> hit the "options" button on your Ds4 then choose "information"...this should show you how far the game has downloaded...

Ps...please change your platform to Ps4 on your profile settings (to prevent future misunderstandings)...

I registered to chime in because I just ran into this today, though a bit different. My chain of events:

-Bought game (disc) Day 1 on PS4
-After initial release, played it off and on again
-October 2016 swapped PS4 HDD. Reinstalled PCars but hadn't played it yet.
-2 Days Ago, Gamestop has Complete Edition (Disc) on sale. Bought that. Input DLC code, all good. Boot PCars (disc) and see all locks. I then thought that I forgot to bring save data back from cloud since I had swapped HDD but I had.
-Copied save data from cloud anyway, still locked.
-Deleted game
-Reinstalled game with latest patch
-Booted back up (disc), locks. Ran first race, still locked.
-Let it set for 20 -30 minutes, came back, everything unlocked.

It might have just been "installing" content after booting, but it's a shame they couldn't, at the very least, put in a progress bar with how much it was "installing". I remember games on PS4's release date had that functionality. To the OP, I'd try just putting in the disc and letting it set awhile. I'm hoping that works out for you, fingers crossed.

if not how do i complain to sms as there game is unplayable on my ps4???
There are approximately 1 million PS4 players playing this game without problems on their PS4. Hence, the game is working fine. We only need to find out what's going on in your particular situation.

Cannot remember exactly how it works (too long ago), but did you register a driver and did you fill in all required fields?

I don't remember exactly because it was so long ago too. But I remember it being something really dumb or youre stuck with that one race and everything locked. I think you are correct about the driver profile.

I posted this yesterday but deleted as scanning though, thought it had been solved. Is it possibly because the OP is restoring old game data to use with GOTY edition, or data created with the download version now with disc version?

^ Yep it very well could be.
