Put your varied and interesting driving challenges in your game by all means, but some of us just want to race. Some of us just want a track, a car, and a stopwatch. Why not give some different and independent campaigns focusing on a single activity? Why *must* we do boring things in games?
I'll also say that the convoluted, absurdly intricate and terribly-slow-to-navigate menu systems in Codemasters' driving games as well as the buddy and rival crap really irritate me. I feel a(nother) TOCA 3 session is imminent.
