    Good to have this interesting track fully working now. Bit of a chore in the Mustang 'though - slide tastic.

    R1 - Seemed to have a good pace here and was in P2 off the grid. Stuart got his customary flying start and was into first. Bar one switch to desktop and a quick 360 on the last corner, most of the remainder of the race I had a good view of the back of his car as it was too tight too make any serious attempt to overtake and without any mistakes from Stuart, second place had to suffice.

    R2 - Off from pole and I built up a good lead until I had another switch to desktop. Managed to switch back again into 2nd place and had a good run ahead of Stu and Eck until I was issued a stop 'n go - bit of a surprise, but ducked into the pits at the same time as Eck (presumably) for the same reason. Got a bit messy after that and I'd also lost any concentration. Finally had another switch to desktop, couldn't switch back to GTL and had to kill it.

    On the whole, enjoyed this track and I can imagine a whole heap of fun with other, more nimble cars.

    P.S. Was going to ask if others had ever had similar problems with switching to the desktop mid race. I've had it happen a few times in rFactor 1 but not in GTL. It seems to happen if I get into a mess and am using to many inputs simultaneously. I thought it was possibly emulating an alt-tab command but on writing this I think it's more like the Windows key as the game still has focus (sound & input still working). I'm now wondering if turning off the Windows key system wide before running GTL might make a difference - I'll try it out.

    This has happened to me a couple times in the last month but I have just completed a new install (digital) because of a different issue. Only have had time for one online race since, but no switching to desktop as yet.

    Thanks Jack. At least I'm not alone with this problem.

    Could it be some notification from anti-virus, windows update or email? I happened to me once when I forgot to close my email and got a mail during race.

    No, I keep everything mean and lean, only running apps when required. All background services are also kept to a minimum.

    I get the feeling its more akin to the controller inputs emulating an alt+tab or Win key press than some outside app.
