A Grid 2 Community Patch is currently in development and is designed to address issues and suggestions raised by the game's players, Codemasters has announced.

The Community Patch is expected to roll out on all formats in August and includes:

Custom Playlist
An increase in the amount of experience and money you get for participating, with no hindrance to your online progression.

Hardcore Playlist
This playlist will remove the use of flashbacks and turn on full mechanical damage. It will also prioritise race events around circuits.

Level Cap
The online level cap will be raised from 30 to 99.

Fastest Lap Times
They will now display at the end of an event on the race results screen while playing online.

New Liveries
A host of new designs, including some of the AI designs from single player.

Maximum Laps
Increased the maximum from 5 up to 10.

Veto Weighting
Vetos are now much fairer and only require 51% of the lobby to make the vote for a change to occur.

Voice Option
You can now mute your own microphone.

Country Flags
A player's country flag will now be displayed next to their name plate while racing and on the event results screen.

Clean Race Bonus
The amount of money rewarded for racing clean has been increased.

Skip the Level up Graphic
You'll now be able to skip this at the press of a button.

Anti-Cheat
Hopeful the leaderboards within the game will now be free of those who have to use illegitimate means to succeed.

Furthermore, Demolition Derby is making a return, and it will be free on all platforms.

And finally, Codemasters has confirmed that two track packs, featuring two of the most requested circuits will be released in the coming months. Each pack will contain a circuit, some cars, new Achievements and trophies.

Will there ever be hope for a less arcade, true racing thriller title like the original 'GRID', without silly game-play and f#*%ing demolition derby..?

The majority of the online races I've been involved in could be described as the Demolition Derby mode.
