Hi

I've been racing PCars for over a year, yet I've only noticed this now (or I knew and forgot...). There's a "P" symbol on my Motec display. It's the circled symbol above the word "SPEED":

Could anyone tell me what it means?

Thanks!

If that's the case then I'm doing a mighty fine job finishing first at 85% AI difficulty. I don't remember the handbrake being a toggle button though.

Any other ideas? Guess it's not a simple question after all... :) I'm seeing this symbol on the motec display of the Aston Martin GT4.

Having looked at a couple of the same Motec devices, in the M3 GT2 and Vantage V8 GT4, it appears that there's space in that position for a logo of some sort (curiously, the logo I've seen appears to be the 4 pCARS slashes!). I wonder if that's what was showing on the reference Motec the devs had access to? No idea what it's a logo for though.

Thanks for your input. You might be right; it might just be a logo and nothing more. It shows up on the motec of the Aston Martin GT3 in-game as well. And that real-life counterparts have some sort of brand logo there indeed.

Pit lane speed limiter?
Pole position?
:D

Good guesses, but no cigar. :D Symbol is shown all the time, regardless of pit/no pit or position.

It looks like this symbol is nothing more than a mock-up of the official PI Research logo or something alike. Thanks to all who tried to figure it out!
