You are not allowed to go over the yellow line at pit exit

Pit entry
You are not allowed to go over the yellow line that start approx 50 meters before the pit, not the yellow line that is there all through the last turn.

Please note that the track map is not working, i opted to get the track out asap and mess with that later.
FLT is working and is recording laps. This is an update to an official track, please make sure you own the Sebring track from S397.
Also if there is any issues with workshop, slow down and make sure you have all the base content installed, and then try again. This might be a bit tricky, as everything in there is updates.

Also note: Qual is still not confirmed

It seems I'm back to business again... Probably getting back into race action for this 12h Sebring after last race being the 24h Le Mans from past Season.
One thing I'm a bit off, though... Talking with my teammates seems that with this mod, the GTs run Soft tires in race condition and changing tires every pit, which got me shocked considering untill last Season we were running Hard compund for double stint. Is it true?

It does, but if you do it within 5 mins, there is no "last edited at xx:xx" and admins/moderators always have the option to "stealth" edit. ;)

That's up to you, really. We have run mediums and softs, and even double stinted both. It's depending on the track, driving style and setup. There is no limitation. You could try hards and triple stint them, but that'll hurt your lap times for sure, but I guess you are long enough in the business, that this is no news for you ;)

Ye, just was caught off-guard when I heard Soft tires were used in race. Past Seasons mods usually had Soft capable to run a full hour, but second half you had major performance drop and at the pit-time they were destroyed; Medium the choise for a strategy of changing tires on every pit and Hard being able to run 2 hours, sometimes 3 like Sebring with regular and calm pace. Tested yesterday a bit after long time not driving, I managed to set a 1:59.3 on Div3 server with a setup by my own after 1h30m of tests, on Medium tires and full tank, second fast lap on those tires. Don't understand how much rubber there was though, looking in-game and on the replay didn't seem to be much, but we were a little more than 2 hours into the session with 6 to 10 people in. Tyre consumption was around 0.9% per lap on rear tires, 1.1-1.2% on front tires, but I think I can improve it with better management and setup. Recorded a vid of the lap and uploaded to YT, felt so good to sit behind the wheel again.
