Hey guys,

We've seen some issues on the PC and Xbox side in regards to the Safety Car that resulted in drive through penalties and in some cases disqualification, see below.
We are asking you guys now to report any issues you experienced on PS4 so we can make sure that running the safety car is an acceptable option for the leagues or if we should turn it off until any potential issues are resolved in a future patch.

I'm not sure if it was in v1.5 or 1.4 but it was a similar issue to the one above where despite the safety car lights being green it wasn't letting backmarkers overtake. In the case I experienced, everyone sat behind the safety car instead of ignoring the warning and a lap or two later it let them through. The way I see it is that there won't be an issue if you follow the onscreen warnings because if you ignore them you will always get a penalty.

In a PSGL league race, two drivers got three drive-throughs penalties (Faunus01 and TUSZMUSZ in video) whilst I got two drive-through penalties.

Video illustrates it.

Don't think we should use it. It'll cause more issues, and it's simply not worth it.

I voted yes, but while they have not affected me, I have seen the problems it has caused

Only issue I've ever had is that the logic is fucked and it comes out at weird times. Other than that I've never had any trouble. I vote for having it on for the sake of realism, and tbh I'd hope there aren't that many huge accidents in the race that warrant it coming out.

I had several safety cars online and no issues whatsoever, exept of @BigshotP1ayerGR DSC during the SC in the Australia social, as he lead and that caused irritation.

I voted no but i haven't seen it online, i've never had issues with it offline but obviously lag online could change that. As already said i doubt/would hope we wouldn't see it much in league races anyway but it would be nice to use if possible with the added strategy and mixing up races.

Maybe go with it to start with and then if there are any problems at all in a league race then disable it.

In the Spanish league where's I'm racing SC ruined most of the drivers with silly DTs, stop and go penalties, +3 sec from nowhere... crazy tbh. Ghost cars infront of the SC, random positions. There's no way till new patch fix it

No not yet, but I think VSC is poorly implemented. You have to accelerate hard on the straights and drive like a granny else where.. Pain in the buttocks, should have just had a limiter.

It always says overtake it even though your your leading then you get drive throughs for falling to far back

I don't think it's worth running it until we're completely certain it's bug free
