As with everyone else, I get a lockup when the first AI car approaches Stavelot.
What is weird is that normally when a GPL .exe locks up, the debugger will display the line of program code where the error occurs. However in this case, no error line is displayed. The debugger seems to think that the .exe is still running OK even though it isn't.
I've never seen this before in many years of debugging GPL patches so something really strange is going on.
Sorry that I couldn't find a solution, but it was worth a try.

The fact that it does not lock up at 60 fps must have something to do with it. :

it's the same here @36fps with linux mint20/wine-stable - 69X full grid AI locking at Stavelot...
Same grid works fine @60fps

I'm trying to think outside the box on why this bug is happening. Normally if a graphics error occurs, the debugger will at least show the line in the rasterizer code where that error is. Nigel wrote the v2 rasterizer code and I understand very little of it, but the debugger can view it. Since the debugger isn't showing an error in the rasterizer code, it probably lies somewhere else.
Also, since the program isn't bombing in a physics code section, I doubt that it is the culprit either.
So that leaves the sound code as a possibility. The debugger cannot view the PC's card or motherboard sound code.
I remember from my experiments with a 60 fps and 72 fps patch that the engine sound would go screwy at 72 fps. Yes, I understand that Spa 67 works at 60 fps so maybe the 60 fps patch is modifying a constant that permits the sound to operate normally?

Looking are FB values around Stavelot, they are not very high at all. They increase after Stavelot for the view to the next left curve. The section at the Masta Kink is a little higher than this. So, that should not factor into a crash from exceeding available memory or computing power.

This makes them driving extraordinary good with 60fps
