I don't know if anyone else has found this issue but I have. When I start on the pole at Brands, I am unable to see the starter except if I look to the left to see him.
             Is there a fix for my problem?
                                             Thanks

Hi with Brands 67 you should have Flag1 file to fix the problem, you should look into the Brands file and unzip it.

The flag1.3do file is not a fix for the starting flagger not being seen from pole position.

There are two viable fixes for this issue.

One is to move the whole grid back some distance so that the pole position driver can see across the track to the starting flagger.
This can be done by editing the track(SC).ini file.

The other way is to edit the brands67.3do to move the starting flagger position.

Okay, here is a fix for the starting flagger position to allow him to be seen from the pole position driver.
I have moved the starter a little forward along the track and a little towards the track edge.
Also, supplied is a fix for the starter's box white stairs that clipped though the Shell sign.

Drop these two files into your brands67 track folder.

Watch the GPL-67 Sportscar EXTRA Mod forum for a more comprehensive update for Brands.
I will post it in the next few weeks.

I never have a problem to look to the left on sart. It doesn't effect my starting reaction.
