The race never starts

Recommended Posts

I've had this game for a while, but haven't been able to do anything with it. 😐

Everything seems to load properly. I get to the staging area just fine, and when I click start it goes through all the opening graphics. The co-driver tells me the first few events on the track and says good luck. The timer and stage graphic load onto the screen. And then nothing, I sit there and the race never starts. I've sat there for several minutes hoping something will happen and it never does. I've deleted and re-installed the game, and still have the same issue. I have most of the dirt and grid games and they all work fine, so this is the only one with a problem.

Any suggestions will be greatly appreciated.

Try to bind a button to the handbrake and push that down and see if it start. If that works you can also go into options > game settings > assist > launch control - on, then you wont need the handbrake anymore.

I already had the handbrake bound to the left paddle shifter. So switching on the launch control did the trick.

Thanks for your help I very much appreciate it.
