Well its worth reading 3 times....
Sorry, I do not agree. Midrace savegame was included in a beta version, so what they did was just to delete savegames introduced in a beta version not compatible to another beta version.Yes. Thanks. We get that. But it's the equivalent to saying "Enjoy the new update. All of your stuff has been deleted, so start over." Not a very good plan to say the least.
I like the game and what we have so far. Wish I didn't lose my game saves, but oh well. I like the way things are headed. Going from dry to wet during a race and having to pit and battle for traction is nicely simulated. Coming together. Thanks KunosSorry, I do not agree.

I would understand your disappointment if that happened in the production branch of the game.
Is there no need to be using the beta branch now that the public 1.0.7 has been released, as in there will be no difference between them?
No difference between the 1.0.7 preview 3 beta and the new live 1.0.7 as mentioned by Pankykapus at ACC forum:
"The update is now live, thank you very much for your feedback. The Public Beta and Live versions are now one and the same."
So .. if you keep the beta branch it will be useful for the next 1.0.8 beta versions which will surely follow in a surely near future.
