VIR full finish line incorrect

Post by MrBlah » Wed May 24, 2017 1:25 pm

I had not noticed this before on previous outings there, but it looks like the finish line is off by quite a bit on the current map

it looks like it's using the car & driver lightning laps sector marker I dunno why that is not the start finish either, that is not the real start finish, it's under the flagging station, there's a big line on the track showing it

You can see the correct finish line on the vir official maps, it's after the kink on the straight, not before it

Thanks, we probably need to add a new configuration (after changing a start/stop trigger, laps cannot be compared directly). Monika will come back on this.

FYI, the start/finish line was changed at VIR in 2014. The S/F trigger in HLT is using the '2013 and earlier' coordinates.

Maybe there should be at '2014+ VIR' and 'pre-2014 VIR'? Not sure how many people are looking back at their pre-2014 laps.

There is now an updated version of VIR full available.
Please check it out via Add-ons, update list with top right button and search e.g. for VIR.
Category name is 'VIR Full 2014', ID 1998.

The old version is still available in section Outdated Tracks at the bottom of the Add-ons list.

I did not look at grand and north did they also have the old finish line?

Yes, the Grand West and North Courses both still have the pre-2014 start/finish line. Can this be updated as well?
