During VEC race at the weekend (Nurbs), the first part of the race was wet. By the time I was to take over the car after 2.5 hours or so, the current driver was saying that the track was basically dry. However, when I passenger-selected and joined the car...it looked extremely wet....indeed it WAS wet to drive for a few corners, then it miraculously dried instantly to 2% wet. I then suffered a game crash mid-stint, dropping me back to the desktop. At the point it crashed, the track was 0% wet (i.e. fully dry)....I quickly re-joined the server, took control of the car again, and went out of the pits.....suddenly I was facing 60% wet track again....and of course I was on slicks....it took over 1 lap of nightmare driving before again, the track suddenly instantly dried to 0% wetness. This seems like strange behaviour. People have suggested it is the RR loading in, but surely it would make sense for this to load in during the track-loading procedure? It meant I not only lost a ton of time re-joining server, but also lost at least 90 seconds trying to drive round a totally wet track on slicks.....and I was a danger to other traffic, who of course I'm sure couldn't understand or expect that I was struggling for grip so much!
