I just got this,
personally I am lucky if I get the chance to do one or two stages with two kids and work!
This morning after I did 4 stages in my Lancia, I was unable to connect to RACENET, since I had to go to work I had no choice but to turn off.
@codemasters can you please fix the default behaviour on this? is deleting the save file the only way? You're inclining me more and more to avoid your games (it took you already a considerable amount of time to support VR. After you did I bought it but mates, this save issue is unheard of)
