Non contact race becomes contact race

Well this is a first for me. I was just doing a stunt race. The host had non contact on, but midway through the race, contact became enabled. Luckily I didn't get dumped or anything, but I did lose one position when a car turned me sideways. As you can imagine, it totally caught me off guard.

 

Video:

 

Notes:

 

The entire first lap is fast forwarded because I didn't want to cut anything out.

 

@ 1:00 the video is not fast forwarded and you can clearly see the race is still non-contact.

 

@ 2:01 you can clearly see contact is on as I lose a position to getting turned sideways.

 

Weird glitch. Definitely the first time I've seen or heard of it. Has anyone else experienced anything like this?

Sometimes when a player leaves a race their car will remain and drive around as a solid vehicle.

 

That doesn't appear to be the case here though. Weird glitch.

Happens when the host of the race leaves halfway through. Also happens when overtaking backmarkers.

So that's why there is bad sport? Lol. And yes, I had this multiple times the non-contact races became contact races.

Really annoying though and the most f*cked sh*t is the slipstream and catchup is turned on too.

I've had it happen a few times, typically during races that have a lot of laps. I've only ever had it happen the other way around, however, once.

If necessary, I can go sort through all my damned clips to find examples.

Yeah, I thought I was stupid for a second. I just kept thinking to myself "Am I dumb? Was this a contact race the whole time and I forgot?".

The host was very fast and he and I battled for several wins. So I remembered his name and I noticed he did not leave. The pink car that made contact with me was for position.

 

So neither of the factors you mentioned were in play. A weird, weird glitch.

Happened to me the other day. All cars behind me were able to contact but ones in front of me were still non contact. Started on lap 2/5. Was really weird. Host never left so idk.

Not necessary, but feel free if you want!

I've only had this happen to me in a premium race, definitely a weird glitch that can occur once in a great while it seems. Was catch up and slipstream still turned off once the non-contact factor went away?

Racing with friends last night. Set up the race for four laps, non contact. Race loads, 2 laps, contact on and all the crap options that brings as well. Needless to say the few trolls with us had a blast.
