I've checked it, so i can see my pitstop and all the stuff which i've to see. What i can confirm is, that you wont get a penalty when you enter the pits, have to check this. But the rest is working fine for me, did anyone else have a problem with the pits?

RaceDepartment Indycar series had a problem with this Montreal - they found that if you didn't request a pitstop, the game just completely ignored that you were in the pitlane more or less. They had to switch to a different Montreal.

Just had a short try, It's for me exactly as you said, I can see my Pit Spot only, when I requested a Pit Stop ... If I'm entering the pit's without a request then there's no spot shown...

We are on it - however if it works with requesting a pit stop, its pretty simple.
There is a significant prepare time on these cars and pitstops should always be requested anyways.

I cant download the track or other updates. Steam wont do it automatically and when I try to enter the server it starts downloading updates and tells em authentication failed. Is there something up right now?

EDIT: Nevermind. Just noticed that workshop got updated. Phew...thought I lost my mind there for a second!
