    That is one thing that really makes me rage, i agree it's aboslutely necessary to avoid exploiting (like in the recent laguna seca event) but getting your next lap invalidated because you GO WIDE (no cutting) off the track 2 corners and 1 km before finish line is ridicolous

    Can you educate me on why it's necessary? I believe you that it is but I can see no reason for it.

    In that case, yeah absolutely. I was referring to your example of running wide and getting penalized. I don't see the logic in that.

    Sorry in advance if I come off a bit over the top, but getting a "next lap invalidated" in Le Mans in any part of the track before the last 4 turns is driving me to hair loss, and I need somewhere to vent. Maybe it's because I'm trying to learn how to drive the Aventador, which for me brings its own level of frustration.

    I can tell you why this "feature" is absolutely NOT necessary: It is detracting me from enjoying the game so much, that I'm starting to think that uninstalling this game is a good idea. Forget about buying Project Cars 3 whenever it comes out. I guarantee you that if I see any "next lap invalidated" for any questionable reason in any forum for that game, I'll definitely not be buying it. Remember that for every one of me saying something, there are going to be 100s of other people who are equally frustrated, but don't say anything.

    There's nothing as frustrating as the race-hole director telling you that not only was the last 4-5 minutes a complete waste of your life, but wait: here comes another 4-5 minutes that will also be a waste of your life. Put those together, and it's 10 minutes down the toilet.

    There has got to be a happy medium in here somewhere where you can still enjoy learning the game without these strikes against you. At least disable uploading a score if you disable "next lap invalidated", or something like that. But as it is, I'm supposed to be driving the car. Not the other way around. This is driving me nuts.
