If I remember correctly, GT5 and GT6 was not effected by this. No matter how much you cut the track or how badly you wiped out, your car would not 'reset' or suddenly ghost. Even with ghosting turned off in GT Sport, cars will still ghost left and right. Which can cause all hell to break loose when trying to pass one of these ghosted cars. With the FIA recognizing GT Sport as a "real world motorsport" it feels like were going backwards in the realism department. Maybe one day PD will give us a hardcore mode? One where, you know, cars dont pass right through each other or have cars teleport back onto the track. And for the casual players who enjoyed the once popular game variant "Cat & Mouse", they have all vanished because of the constant ghosting and corner cutting/track resets as far as I can tell.
