Race full length
Difficulty 100%
Rules full
Damage realistic
Every aid was turned off i play the game 100% aid free and all rules on..

I was in a gt3 race when i was entering a corner i went in a little too hot and run out wide getting my wheels on the outer grass when i got black flagged disqualified. .???..you cant get a dq for running out wide..i was the only car there no other cars. I didnt even get any warnings..were is the logic in being black flagged running wide.

Has this happened to others..??

What track, what car, what turn on that track? You say you hadn't received any penalties at all prior to being DQ'd? Are you positive?

Sounds like a bug, but without additional information allowing someone to try an reproduce the issue, there's nothing anyone can do about it.

I've noticed the same about "warnings" and dq's. Sometimes I receive a second "warning" without having got a first one, that at least has not been shown in the small text box nor mentioned by the race engineer.

I have noticed that as well...it happens quite often...but never seen the black flat incident as described by OP.

I was DQ-d after several track cutting during one race, but that was long ago

I believe that after 10 track cuts you get DQd regardless of race duration.

10 track cuts, or maybe 3-4 verbal warnings. I wish there was a "standardized" penalty progression posted by the devs so that everyone would know where they stand at any given time on a track.

Something like:
-3 Verbal Warnings, then boot on the 4th
-10 "dirty" lap incidents, and each verbal warning also counts as one dirty.

The penalty system, while GREATLY improved in 3.0, still seems a bit arbitrary.

The verbal warnings aren't really warnings as such I don't think, they are part of the pit engineer system which seems to be generally a bit patchy, with this in mind I have turned it off entirely. The way I think it works is 10 infractions (invalidated laps or 5+ second penalties) get you booted out of the session, it seems reasonable but it would be good to have a visual reminder of how many you had already and therefore how careful you need to be in the remainder of a session.
