You should be able to join the 25% races. I found that the 5 lap races didn't work though. No idea when that'll be fixed... hopefully soon :smiley:

Tried 25% as well as 5%, got the error from OP in both cases.
Update: Experienced this in unranked sessions as well

Ranked online sessions have not been working since 24 hours now (non ranked games are working fine). If you try to join a ranked game it won't connect on 49 of 50 attempts. Cmon codies, this should be your first priority to fix or atleast give us some information about the problem and when it'll be fixed. So many people wan't to play ranked games :neutral:

Yeah but the ranking and ratings don't work when you get in there anyway. Collision detection and blame aportioning is a shambles. You can ram people off track and get nothing, you can get hit off and lose safety and skill.

I do have the same problem (In The Netherlands) 

Every time I shut down my PS4, my online Statistics are being reset... 
I've driven several (ranked) races but my driven KM's are still 0 
average Q position 0
Total raced 0 etc etc...

Really annoying.

full week and couldnt connect to ranked.  cp 7 error message every time.  previously no issues.  
That error message means that you were unable to connect to a session due to a connection error. Likely causes are bandwidth issues, high packet loss on your network, the console doing something else in the background and not being able to process the messages with PSN properly, or PSN service instability. I'd recommend the following:
  1. Do a hard reboot of the system and then launch directly into the game without launching any other apps or suspending the system
  2. Run the "Test Network" option in the PS4 options menu (under the Network setting) should give you basic info and check whether everything is working correctly.
  3. Check that no one else is using / abusing your internet connection at the same time as you are trying to play the game! 
  4. Check your router / firewall logs to see if you are dropping packets, or preventing traffic between your console and Sony
  5. Check the web for any reports of PSN instability or maintenance in your region.

I am trying to get into or host any multiplayer session? Haven't been able to join one in three days, I can see the list on non-ranked session but when I attempt to join I get Error Unable to join session. I go into Ranked, vote for a race and sit there waiting for others to join and either after 2 hours or more no other player enter or they cannot enter due to ?????

After multiple google searches for an answer I have forwarded ports 4380, ports 6112-6122 and ports 2700-27037 both UDP & TCP to my PC'S IP address, opened same ports on my Windows 10 firewall plus disabled that firewall and still same results. Following Hoo's suggestions I have rebooted both the PC (Windows 10) and the router (Cisco RV042). Ran speed test on my network 53mbps up and 8mbps up. Nothing in the router logs showing any blocks and nothing out of the ordinary in the Windows logs. I have post in codemasters and steam support forums requesting clarification on the correct firewall setups required to play the game with ZERO responses on either in 3 days. I know the game is capable of being played in multiplayer because I see the games available there in unranked but "no one" appears to want to advise new players on how to set their systems up to be able to join in Multiplayer. I must assume there are currently enough good drivers playing in multiplayer that no more are desired.
