There is a big gotcha with the pit window. Because the pit lap is counted from when you reach your pit box, it depends on whether your box is before or after the start line. Some people will be able to pit (as in enter the pits) on lap 4, for example, and some will only be able to pit on lap 5, if their box is before the start line.
Similarly, at the end of the pit window when it says there are 0 laps left at the top of the screen, if your pit box is before the start line, you can still pit, but if your box is after the start line, you're disqualified.
It's a bit broken at the moment. They should have counted your pit lap as the lap on which you entered pit lane.
So it might be a good opportunity to test some of these quirks.

It's time to take the Porsches to the high speeds and long straights of Monza. World record lap times are in the 1:50's.
Note this race is on APRIL 4.
2 x 16 lap sprints (no pit stops).
You will need the OSRW PIT MOD installed in the track.
Weather Forecast (long range outlook is 27 and clear)
Jimmy and Slow As will have 40 kg penalty ballast (since they didn't race last round where the ballast applied from).
I don't really keep a close eye on F1, but I'm surprised by the big spread in qualifying times: https://www.formula1.com/en/results.html/2017/races/959/australia/qualifying.html
Some interesting insights from Aristotelis:
You're not imagining things. It is a tricky car to drive and even more tricky to setup.
Thanks Roo, but if others are keen to start, I don't mind.Wally will be away and I think it would be nice if we wait till the following week.Fun Run suggestion for Thursday 30-3-17

I had a quick look. It didnt have any damage repair settings so wonder how that would work. On Tuesday i was able to click the aero button as I approached my box.It does, at the bottom, doesn't it?

@Wally: plenty of very interesting stuff towards the end of the log!!!The pit config stuff sounds nice. Goodbye PitConfig! Nice race over fix too. The rest of it, we'll see how it works in practice. The pit window stuff looks confusing because it depends on where your pit box is.
