    Please add this feature. Its quite annoying when you play with your friends and you have to retire because of crash or some other reason and can't even watch the rest of race as specdator. I think its very basic thing that should be in game from the beginning. Instead of watching good race you see just menu.

    Even allowed to join server during race in progress would be pretty cool. Of course without possibility to go on track mid-race. Bud specdate and wait until next race will start.

    Is some of this atleast planned to be implemented in future?

    I agree for spectating while already on server.
    But actually I can't agree for players joining while racing, cause I (and some other users too) have freezes ~50% of the time when someone join. Freezes while driving are an important issue, still hoping that S3S looks into this...

    Wasn't this already fixed? I know it used to lag when new player joined in qualy or practice, but its not happening to me anymore since some earlier patch.

    Exit, change steam option for spectator mode, rejoin the server.

    Would be great to watch the others.
    It works while you're still parked somewhere on track, but not anymore after hitting ESC. Please bring that menu, so we can watch how to do better next time ;)
