No, many won't use the real clutch option- just like most won't use rain. Look online- 99% rain-free, but it hasn't stopped ISI from including rain has it? There are those of us who WILL use this real clutch option. Some sim racers like it as difficult (REAL) are possible so they forgo auto anything and choose to do it themselves and sacrifice some speed. I'm looking forward to a retro league, with weather and a real clutch. Sometimes I go for all speed and use the paddle shifters and auto clutch but sometimes I don't- choice is good. Right now I run a league series which uses rain & long format (up to 3 hours) races which by convention should be unpopular but once you turn people on to this sort of different racing they like it. the real clutch option may turn out to be more popular than you think- especially since the very first mod ISI released with rF2 was 1960's WCR! By adding the option of the real clutch, those who want to keep the old way can and those who want to move on to a more realistic experience can. As for myself, driving a 1960's Formula car with auto clutch and paddle shifters takes out of the moment and degrades the over-all experience of the vehicle. As for Change.org... I'm sure the "vast" server resources I've "wasted" on this one petition won't break them. They will be OK and move on.
