    Post rawName with empty string exception

    This bug was encountered while using CrewChief with rFactor 2 but I suspect it would be relevant to other sims as well.

    --- Setup

    - Using Windows 10 Pro
    - Updated CrewChief to the latest version
    - Downloaded rFactor 2 latest driver names (Race Department)

    --- Game

    - Started rF2 x64 and tested with a stock GT3 race with a stock track (DLC)
    - During the race, CrewChief threw an exception when it tried to name the driver ahead
    - CrewChief exception window was thrown on top of rFactor 2 freezing the race
    - Restarting rFactor 2 the same behaviour has been observed with a number of other drivers

    --- Solution

    - After further investigation, a temporary workaround was found by enabling the "TTS setting (text)" option "only when necessary"
    - The TTS pronounces the name of the driver correctly (default voice profile) when the spotter gives an update that uses an unrecognised name
