Race Sessions

– Fixed an issue seen in the Blancpain Endurance Series where sessions were being split into larger run-groups than dictated by the track.

Dynamic Track

– For sessions using an Automatically Generated track state, the default starting usage will now vary by a percentage based on the following:
– – Session Type = Such that earlier sessions, such as Practice, are cleaner than later sessions, such as Qualifying. This behavior was originally done and this behavior continues with this update.
– – Time of Day = Such that sessions earlier in the day are cleaner than session later in the day, reflecting usual track usage throughout a given day.
– – Weather = Such that the cloud cover affects the likelihood that relatively recent rain may have compromised track time and/or washed away some percentage of the previous track state. Also, for sessions with Realistic Weather, a random factor is also used to account for variation in track usage due to miscellaneous events prior to the session.
