What I just wanted to know is, with the karts, are they going to have fully animated pitstops like the cars or have they been dropped for PC2?

the karts are in the game. The only question is why you would do pit stops in the first place? :)

Maybe because we have 2-stroke kart endurance races in Europe, even a 24 hrs at the Le Mans karting track ?
So pitstops may be necessary...

Yeah, apparently they are. Will just be interesting though to see if SlightlyMad make them similar to this (like they were in the video), given how different they are animation wise to regular cars.

My old race team Satellite Racing does them. A lot of the IMSA pro drivers compete in them as well (you can find videos from the Taylor brothers).

Even some places that do rental karts do longer races that require pits stop, refuelling and driver changes... (there's one about 30 miles up the road from me, company I used to work for did an endurance event there.. the first place trophy is sitting on the shelf ..:))

The kart tracks do not have pits. You can pit a kart on a normal track. There will not be a full set of animations for the kart pit stop (just the front guy).

That's not correct. Some of the kart tracks have pits, but they don't work probably.

what do you mean the tracks have changed for PC2. do you mean the official track release isnt official anymore? please could you clearify what you were trying to say with that statement?

The kart tracks in PC1 may have had pit spots, but those tracks have been altered in PC2.
