Build Release Notes: 04-26-2012

Hosted Sessions
– Fuel limiting per car type is now available. **NOTE: There is still a bug where doing a multi-class hosted event with any of the Impalas or the Silverado causes pre-qualifying and pre-race tech inspection to continue indefinitely, preventing the driver from participating in that session. But it appears that customers almost never create multi-class events using these cars, so we have decided to make this new feature available for use now. We are still working on tracking this issue down, but in the meantime please avoid using any of these 4 cars in a multi-class hosted event.
