    Maybe I'm a bit emotional right now because that is, I don't know, at least the 5th time I got crashed into oblivion by a DTM Car while leading in a multiclass race...

    I've had an idea for longer time in my head...

    Some sort of licenses, to be able to race the fastest class in a certain multiclass race you have to be one of the ''faster guys''. Let's say you have to do a time trial on a track with the wished class and beat a timelimit, or drive 3 consitent laps in a row without crashing to unlock it for online racing.

    Or your qualifying lap has to be in a certain time window, otherwise you wont compete in the race.

    I don't know, the online lobbys are frustrating right now... you see everywhere DTM kids with low pace holding you up while you are driving a gt3 car, or they crashing into you with full speed on a straight... the only lobbys with people in it are those with DTM cars, or with free content (I've never tried that one out, because I can imagine that wreckfest)

    We should think about some ideas to fix this situation, otherwise I think these open lobbys are completely lost.
    Multiclass is fun, but not like this...

    Speed isnˋt actually the issue I think. If soneone is just really slow in a DTM but can still be passed safely that is fine with me. So an exclusion should rather be safety based than speed, ergo safety rating

    totally agree with that, the problem is you pass that faster raceclass and they pass you on the straight again or crash you in oblivion... I would welcome any kind of rating, doesn't have to be that complex like in ACC, but some reward for safe driving maybe would change a little bit.

    Sooner or later you come to the conclusion, that an online community/simracing league (Gentleman or pro whatever suits your preferences) is the only option to have a fine Race Room Racing Experience

    If people are crashing on purpose in public lobbies, add some video evidence here and link to raceroom profile and they can be banned.
