    I'm not 100% this is a bug, but I just did a 30 min gt3 race at spa. And first of all, I got an stop and go penalty for overtaking during yellow flag, which I also got very confused about, since I patiently waited until I got a green flag before passing. But regardless I also tried to stop and go but my penalty never went away ultimately leading to my disqualification of the race. Very annoying. So either I did the stop and go incorrectly (I was still in first gear, but was standing completely still before hitting the throttle again), or this was a bug in which the game never registered my stop. Anyone else having this issue?

    Ok I can now confirm that this is in fact a bug. Provoked another stop and go penalty and it is impossible to serve the penalty. Stopped several times, for like 5 seconds standstill, even tried to pit stop but still got disqualified. Only tried at spa with porsche gt3 R so far.

    When you pull into the pits to serve the stop & go penalty, you need to select the option in the pit menu and confirm the choice. Otherwise it wont register as being served.

    Did you do this?

    hm, I might of missed that. Firstly i might be used to assetto corsa's system of stop and go, which is simply what it sounds like. You stop the car, and then go again. I thought this was the same. So if it is like you say, then it's probably not a bug but a user fault. I'll try again to confirm

    Okay yes just tried what you said and you are correct, my bad. It works as intended.

    Thanks for trying that to find out.

    I agree it is a bit confusing and not entirely clear. Personally, I would like to see that pit menu revamped to allow for making your pit decisions a lot easier.
