    You pit, pull into the pit box, then your car doesn't get released. You have back off track in order to leave it.

    That's probably because there are cars going along the start finish straight. The Ai won't release you until it's clear, because of where the pit exit is.

    Executed DC as usual. Left pit after Green was given.
    Hit an out of control car in T3 - which ruined lap. Entered pit for repair and car would not leave. Left pit, came back - no change still stuck in pit.
    Never got a qualifying lap.

    It's happened to me many times, everything seems normal in the pits and in the pitstop, but the "Lollipop" man never releases you. As for the cars going past the pit straight theory, it's happened to me in a solo session.... how can we fix this issue if it occurs during the race? Thats what i don't know as the simple hop off track then rejoin will still hurt a team alot, plus refuel the car past what you may want...

    I've never seen that happen in any race I've done, held in pits yes but not being able not to join track.

    Spa 6 hour was red flagged i belive because a driver was stuck in the pits. So I assume the race would just be red flagged.

    Couldn't exiting and re-entering due to a pit glitch be treated as a setup change? although instead of typing DC, we could use PG (pit glitch) instead?

    Really nice session!
    I, very noobly, managed to get a track limits warning at literally my first flying lap :lol:, but I managed to be precise and in control for the rest of the session, which went smoothly.
    Also, I'm really satisfied of the time I managed to get, just at the last lap before the coming of the SC called in by AJ, that's just so gratifying :D

    The 'Lotii' are quick and it is Scar teams backyard so it's definitely a challenge but you guys are up to it!

    Can't wait for this one, what a season finale it will prove to be for GT Cup!!!

    Good couple of QP sessions for Swift Autosport... Sadly we have a bigger mountain to climb than we would have liked, but the pace of the VW is good and the guys in the team have been super!

    I might be the only Brit in the team, but with the grit and tenacity of a bulldog, one's more than enough... So watch out! ;)

    What is happening with the #91 Honda CRZ? I'd definitely love to take that seat.

    @AJ Any idea as to when we'll have the QP results and starting grid?

    I'm itching to see how slow I am in comparison to the rest of the field!! ;)

    WOW! To think that us guys at TAR just got our franchise and now we're lining up 3rd for the 12 Hours. Well done to @DannyB013 and @JakeKing39 for seriously impressing on their qualifying debut into GTPES. Looking forward to the race this weekend!

    Very excited for this weekend, but it's clear we've got a lot of work to do in order to get our Orange CRZ to the pointy end. I'm sure my 4 drivers, @skywalker, @TNR_KING_FILO, @Konnor and @warrior2167 can get it done, both classes will be extremely exciting, however much care will be needed in order for passes to be made. Brands Hatch isn't the widest of circuits so I hope we wont see cars being speared off in a blue flag incident. Good luck to everyone, in particular my mates the #88 Green Hell Heathens Renault, the title is there for the taking!
