Gta races are fun because it's just mindless violence.
No that's not really fun. Some have to settle for that kind of sh*t cos that's the best they can do, but that's not where the fun is.
FUN during a race is about going wheel to wheel through corners with other guy that is very close to your pace. RACING is the fun bit of races.
People who can't RACE fot their lifes are missing all the fun. Ghost mode is bad for bunches of good racers because there's no racing like that. But it's a God-gift for regular lobbies because that way they can get something remotely similar to a race.
I don't need this anymore, in fact it would hurt our races now. But I would have loved to have this on my days of open lobby racing.
