    • Made mandatory stop available in timed races as a user option; Added separate counter for valid mandatory stops; Fixed time+1lap races allowing mandatory stops in last lap; Mandatory stops must now be completed as far as pit exit trigger to count as valid (effectively preventing valid mandatory stops in last lap of a timed race with no extra lap)
    • Fixed bug where sometimes the real weather from previous session would load in current session in championship mode & made default championship race distance scaling 100%
    • Fixed some users having ABS/TC/SC forcibly disabled in multiplayer lobbies that have the force realistic driving setting enabled
    • Adjusted logic to help prevent incorrectly switching to 'build/off' ERS mode when driving on wide but legal exit curbs in Qual/TT sessions and adjusted auto logic to always use Qual mode in TT

    • Full Course Yellow: Made it easier to give back illegal overtakes to AI during full course yellow; Prevented a issue where more than one AI would overtake the player to regain position when only one AI should; Fixed some false positives and false negatives related to detection of offroad vehicles that you are allowed to overtake during full course yellow; Extended full course yellow HUD element to include name of driver to follow; Forced display of driver label for the driver a player should follow under full course yellow. Adjusted height of driver labels and their scaling when close to the camera; Allowed the leader to slow down more progressively during full course yellow; Increased the speed limit for the leader a few meters before the end of full course yellow; Added driver label for the car a player needs to follow under FCY; Fixed disconnected clients continuing to trigger double yellow and full course yellow events in some cases
    • Made vehicle adjustment messages visible in all HUD modes (seat adjustment/Brake bias setting etc)
