    I too noticed the penalties at Le Mans, even in a race with a lot of fast guys 90% of the drivers ended up with a penalty at some point.

    I think GT may be adopting the rule that Le Mans had a few years ago about the white line being the limit of the track, not the curbs. Meaning four wheels inside (or outside) the white line counting as a penalty. It was particularly noticable at the exit of the Dunlop chicane (running wide was a penalty) as well as the Mulsanne chicanes.

    For those that are interested, the FIA Championships are starting for real on Wednesday. A couple seasons for the summer, then regional championships after August with a World Final later in the year. But it seems Nissan has added an incentive: If you choose Nissan for the Manufacturers Championship, they will also be rewarding the highest scoring Nissan drivers with additional prizes and trips to Japan. I'm curious if any other car companies are planning to do the same

    I believe you are correct about the white line, that makes sense based on the penalties I was receiving. Didn't realize that was a real thing.

    As for the FIA Championship, good luck. I'm just happy to get Top 5 in the daily races

    The white line thing only lasted a year or two, they did it under the claim of trying to avoid the sharp stones being knocked onto the track, but they abandoned it pretty quickly.
