    Can't get above 40 fps on the grid, shouldn't be happening with my system. Can anyone help me out? Not sure what to do, tried 3 different AMD drivers. Same issue with vertical sync on and off.

    Intel i5 4670k 4.3ghz
    amd hd7950 overclock to 1000mhz
    8 gb ram
    windows 8.1
    650w power supply.

    I've had the same issue after i purchased new hardware, Although it should run the game smoothly it lagged like crazy at the start and when the ai was in my screen. Turns out that if i'd lower my shadows, the problem was gone. Still i do not understand why my new hardware cannot run this game's shadows. i mean Race 07 isn't that graphical. I did some driver updates, BIOS update.. but in the end it was just a setting that had to be changed. Try it out, i hope this helps you out too.

    My system:

    Intel Core i5-4690K @ 3.50Ghz
    Gigabyte Sniper B6 Motherboard
    16 GB RAM
    MSI Twin Frozr III Radeon HD 6950

    It must be a driver issue. I also have performance issues with this game since I switched from Windows XP to 8.1. I have tried installing different drivers, and they did make a difference, ended up with the oldest driver available for this OS. Not the best for Race 07, but I also had performance and quality issues in other games, and this became the best solution. There was a driver that gave me acceptable performance in Race 07 too, sadly I do not remember which one it was.

    I have:
    Pentium D 915 2.8 GHz
    2GB DDR2 667MHz RAM
    Radeon HD5570 1GB DDR3

    Under Windows XP the game ran fine (over 30 FPS) on high settings, 1366x768 resolution.

    I'm not an expert though.
