Is it a bug or what? Why would i want to join a race session already in progress?

What is the meaning of the last column in the public mo list?

I agree, I think it's a stupid design decision to have already started races shown in the multiplayer list.

The last column (L/P/Q/R) shows in which state the session is. I only look at Q sessions.

Allowing to join a race in progress is far from a stupid idea. Once agian, this is a feature that is needed for leagues and eSports. It's to allow spectators to join, the same as iRacing allows.

The last column is the session stated as mentioned. Lobby/Practice/Qualifying/Race (L/P/Q/R).

Alright, there are some valid use-cases. But I bet 99% of the people browsing the list of games are interested in joining a game to race in, not to spectate. If half the games are already in the racing phase, most people browsing the list see a lot of irrelevant entries.

Maybe an LPQR filter would solve this issue.

I get that but those races should be filtered out if i'm not interested in all race sessions. Maybe there is some wip for the filter in the lobby..

Totally agree it is annoying as hell and really difficult to find a race to join when almost every race with players in it are already in mid race.
To make matters worse when you join as spectator in a race with only 1 lap or 4 minutes left most leave the lobby when the race is over leaving us searching again.
Please add a filter for this.

Would be nice when you see clearly in which Session they are before joining the server.
