I love AC but the draconian penalty system is just 'killing' it for me. I'm mostly hot-lapping with it now due to that system... Recently on starting what was supposed to be a great race....(twenty four guys at Spain running the L125)). I got in late and did not have a chance to qualify so I started twenty-third...not a problem since I like starting at the back and trying to work my way through the field. I got a great start...up to tenth by turn one, then had to pull left and slow for a first corner pile-up at which point I got 'clobbered' from behind and pushed off track. Penalty....I must now slow to almost a stop before the lap is over. I watch as cars 'fly' by and disappear. After what seems like an eternity, I can again race. It's futile. I pull over...hit escape and exit the game because I know based on the time I sat almost stationary, there is absolutely no way to catch up. It's a race killer and needs addressing..
