    It took me nearly a minute to realize how long the penalty really was, that's why it was at 2,911 when I took a screenshot. Anyone else ever had a nearly hour long penalty?

    Well done. How did you get it?
    Is there a trophy for this sort of thing lol

    I got ~1000 seconds coming out of the pit lane at Spa once.
    No idea why.

    I think I received it because I went around some barricades. I was running a version of the track I had never been on before, and where you usually turned they had barricades up in a couple different areas to make you redirect to that modified version of the track. I did it twice in a few laps (at two different areas) because I was used to going flat out in those sections and all of a sudden I'd round a corner or crest a hill and realize I was going too fast to brake or turn sharply, so I negotiated around the barricades and rejoined the track. The first time penalty in one area was 10 seconds, then the next was 15 or 20 seconds. That's why this last time I thought it was 30 seconds, not 3,000 and that's why it took me a few to realize how long it really was and to snap a screen shot. I looked away to take a drink and when I looked back at the TV I realized that I still had 48+ minutes of penalty time left.

    I've never heard of a Spa pit lane penalty. Did you get a shot of it?

    Maybe but I'll have to find it.
    There may be a way to get a big penalty if you cut the bus stop chicane and go straight to pits lol

    DAMMIT! I deleted my high score screenshot last week...

    Since any claims is pointless without photo proof, I shall share the time a cone got wedged in my windshield and I had to drive blind.

    Are you sure that your avatar didn't bring the cone with him as a megaphone? It looks like it's INSIDE the car! Lol
