Am I the only person who has found the following glitch on the Spa B Spec Seasonal Event since GT 5 was updated to 2.03.
Before the update the race would open just coming through the Bus Stop prior to the Start/Finish straight so you could start getting you driver in the right frame of mind for crossing the line.
After the update what I now get is a black screen, I can hear the cars moving as they go through the Bus Stop (I presume as I can't see it but it seems logical) onto the straight, obviously unable to set the driver up, the Gran Turismo logo appears in the bottom right corner and the race fades into view just as my car goes into the first corner, AFTER crossing the start finish straight, I am then FINALLY allowed to start taking control of my Bob as he heads down hill on the drop to Eau Rouge.
At first I thought this was a one off so I restarted the race, exactly the same, shut the system down restarted, same again, I have even removed and reinstalled & reupdated and it is the same so it is definitely something to do with the update.
Don't get me wrong, I can still win the race but lets be fair here, the race is supposed to start at the Start/Finish line, NOT at a later point to give the AI's a helping hand, and it did work properly before the update so the most likely cause is the update itself.
Am I alone here or has anyone else had this problem?

Change the grid layout
Car detail levels change how soon the engine will render.

Then enter and Exit the event to cycle the grid line up...

I'm have noticed this. And I have used it on 2 different PlayStation 3s so it could well be a problem in the patch.. but not to worry as the races finish on the 31st anyway.
But mine comes on screen just at the Start/Finish and I tend not to need to tell my Bobs what to do, they win quiet often,
Cars I have used for this race are: Castrol NSX, Lambo Nomad and 03 Takata NSX. Will try a premium and see if any difference.
I have also noticed it takes Spa longer to load in arcade and time trial as well.

I've been using primarily (but not exclusively) an '08 Epson NSX which is a Premium so it's not a Premium/Standard thing.
The good thing is I have now used the 4Million credit bonus to build up my cash to get all the Mega buck cars, Ford Mark IV, Ferrari 330 P4, Lambo Miura, Ferrari F10 and F2007, all the real expensive ones. (I got the Jag XJ 13 as a prize car, ironically for winning the B Spec Seasonal events at Spa and Le Mans.)
As I have said before the glitch is not earth shattering, I can still win the race, it is just a pain that it has changed from what it was, I have tried everything I can think of and the suggestions put to me and nothing sorts the glitch.
