GTR Evolution - Pole Position Bug (just Mini's?)

S

Stuart Brewster

Not seen any thread titles that mention this, so hopefully I'm not just repeating...

A couple of times in Mini races, I've seen an issue with two cars being placed on the pole position spot at the start of a race. The first time it was myself, having qualified 11th. I spotted that there were no cars in front of me, wondered what was happening, then the other car joined the grid, the two cars occupying the same space.

As soon as the lights changed, I was thrown into the air and chaos ensued behind. The second time, I was directly behind the incident (think both may actually have been at Brands, but can't remember fully) and the same happened on that occasion.

Spotted on the replay that it said I was in position -1...?

I have seen this happen occasionally too. On those occasions, it happened when a new driver joined the server just before Qualy ended. Was that the case for you?

nope, people were always coming, but i was alone on the first place of the grid. like if 2 races were being made at the same place, in 2 different dimensions!!! weird...

I think it is a bug that has been around from RACE07.
Had it in the WTCC cars and it caused a massive pile up in group 2 of the Anderstorp RD WTCC league race a couple of weeks ago.
