    Hey all!

    Let's say i'm coming down the start/finish straight and approach the pitlane lights. Can i see on the lights if someone is coming down pitlane? Like do they blink or show another color of something?

    It would be great if i could see it somehow because for example in Donington the drivers exiting the pits drive right into the line of fire but if the drivers on the start/finish straight would know someone is exiting the pits he could choose another line into T1 and avoid an accident waiting to happend.

    the blue light should only flash if someone is in the pitlane to warn him that you are comming
    not sure if it is blinking constantly if one come down the start/finish strait

    strictly speaking you shouldn't be using that tarmac ;) but you can see them easy with name tags on, thats how I tell. The pit lights will always flash if someone is approaching the line regardless of if anyone is in the pit lane at the time.

    We've raced there lots of times in the past with no major problems, just needs everyone to be alert to the situation in hand.

    Removes a bit of realism but I always race with Nametags on when online, this being one of the reasons.
    They are also good to see of the car behind you is trying to overtake you for position or is lapping you.

    i find name tags can be distracting and can cause game lag, so i use the mini map to see whats happeing in the pitlane.

    You only have it if you run the game from the Evo shortcut mind (never seems to work for me using the RACE 07 or STCC shortcut).

    The latest Steam patch should have changed that. As long as you have Evo installed you should have the map.
    Not 100% certain, but that seems to apply to the other features.
