I think the screen capture below says it all:
I noticed a player had a custom race on intercity (can't remember his name) so I joined, noticed he had a Ferrari (which tend to whip my poor little GTR on intercity) and quit the race to look for a different one.
After doing so I noticed he had a second race with him in it, but the first race he created was still listed as having 1/2 racers entered so I went back to the one I just left to find it actually had nobody in it (even though the custom race list showed it as having 1/2 drivers entered).
I wasn't expecting it to start with only myself in it but it did - not sure how the bug came about (perhaps we both left the race in question simultaneously?) and the original creator of the custom race I was by myself in was definitely in another race with the same configuration at the time.
It looks like this has happened around 60 times in the history of racing. I think it is due to people leaving the race on the exact second that the race starts. Although very unlikely, the sheer number of races that happen on a daily basis means this can occur. I don't see it as a big problem, and is not really fixable without removing some usability of races and restricting people from leaving in some circumstances.
