Hopefully it won't go down the same path as the recent DiRT games with shocking menu systems and a boring career mode (not that the original GRID was a whole lot better).
Career mode? I have vague recollections of that. All about online with Grid. Euro Touring Cars anyone?
On the handling, I think making it a bit more forgiving is a good idea. Whilst some people were good enough to handle high speed cars (90 second lap around Otukama achivement is a good indication of this), often races in the high power cars was more of a "Who drops it the least" competition.
The touring cars however was one of the most competitive online bits of racing I've ever been involved in. Some of the races I had with them (well, in reality in the Lacetti - the BMW was pretty pants tbh) were just phenomenally close. There were loads of racers I knew by gamertag that I had my own little rivalry with that I'd see day in, day out for a long period of time. It doesn't surprise me that I did well over 700 races in touring cars alone on that game!
