So, I've been mainly playing FM7 Cycled Division multiplayer hopper, and I've got to tell Turn 10 that it's gotten so stale, repetitive, and downright stupidly annoying. I can overlook Nascar as one of the divisions, but off-road buggies division? That division is even more annoying to race, especially with the great tracks that they race on. I think everyone who plays cycled division would agree that you should take away that division from the cycle. You should replace it with the early touring car division (an extremely rare division that shows up!). Also you should change up the division and what course they should race on. Make each division race on relevant courses, like V8 Supercars on Bathurst, 90's grand prix at Spa, FE on city circuits, and let Class 10 and all truck divisions race on your made up (seriously those tracks are so bumpy, they'd be in their element.

Here's my full suggestion for a revamp of the cycled division lobby by course(some may overlap with what already exists or exists in singleplayer, will include two or three divisions for some courses, and will list tracks that don't seem to be in the current rotation.):

There probably won't be an update to the hoppers, but I would love to see support to change the cycled division hopper.

Also, there's a major problem with corner cutting at turn 2 on Catalunya. If you could fix that next time around, that would be great

Game has had horrible hopper lobby and league rotation (never change) since day 1. Random is random Top Gear at least half the time. They will not fix it because the people who do the rotations don't know a lot about racing and what tracks are good for a certain division. Very little chance of them listening. There are many corners that people cut on almost every single track. Watkins first turn, any track with a bus stop style chicane, can go on and on.
