You'll love it. It has all the features you wanted and got the hump for being missing in DC. We can have 4, 5, 6 way races etc. in private lobbies with 30 other AI cars added. Awesome!
The best fun we had in DriveClub was when everybody kicked out of a lobby and left me, Kila, wotty etc on our own. A proper laugh in simple hot hatches.
