    Try closing steam, remove all the contents of the RACE 07 folder and restart steam. This would give you a clean fresh working installation.

    Yep, definitely - might be the only solution, though. Clicking "remove local files" (guessing the translation ;)) in the game's (+addons, if applicable) context menu should do the same thing.

    However, first, you could try to check the game files - open up the game's properties, navigate to the last tab ("Local Files") and there should be an option to do just that :)

    Yikes.. well, the only thing left (that comes to my mind) would be your user profile, located in C:\Users\<username>\Documents\SimBin\Race 07

    You might want to move the folder somewhere else to preserve files, or just completely delete it. R07 should create a new one once it's started again

    edit: hah, few seconds too late, glad it's working again! :)

    If you would have tried the suggestion in #2 you don't have to redownload all the content :)

    It will simply unpack all the core files again and voila: fresh game.
