PostSubject: Thread regarding if you pit and a caution comes out   Tue Sep 22, 2015 10:06 am

Here is some clarification about this topic.

Thanks to Rob Cobb for pointing to this thread.

It's been a topic of discussion for years:

The guideline we have been following is "pass the pace car if your light is flashing".

The NASCAR rule is different for cars pitting before and after the Start/Finish line ( If pitting before S/F, they have to beat a car to S/F on the pit lane.  If pitting after S/F, they have to beat a car to the pit lane end-line.  The NASCAR rules are further complicated by judgment calls on how much the leader slows down and whether the car on pit lane sped.

The sim seems to only use the S/F timing line no matter where the car is pitting. It doesn't have a scoring line at the end of pit lane that extends onto the track. This is not just about passing the pace car.  It's also about proper positioning whenever the yellow comes out and cars are on the pit lane.
It's confusing, but the flashing light removes us from having to make judgement calls. We are able to prove someone cheated if they pass cars when exiting the pits that beat them to S/F after the yellow came out.
