we can simulate the early morning pre-dawn (or twilight for that matter), for a drive or a race :

I provide the track here with asphalt from one of the bsarthe add-ons:
name=24 Heures Du Mans Nuit
shortname=Le Mans Morning
nbsarthe.zip 5.16MB 6 downloads
So with this added horizon option you can simulate the 24 Hrs of Le Mans :
Part 1 = daytime/afternoon start = bsarthe track (no fog settings)
Part 2 = dusk = nbsarthe (with added fog)
Part 3 = night = bsarthe (with added fog)
Part 4 = first light/pre-dawn = nbsarthe repeat
Part 5 = daytime/afternoon finish = bsarthe repeat (no fog)

It's from Excel2007 but should work with newer versions hopefully. There are 4 tabs at the
bottom for selecting Daytona, Sebring, Le Mans, and Reims. I aim to get some sky horizon's for dusk/dawn
worked out for the other races besides Le Mans, so you'll notice I've made those options available for tabulating, but
everyone may feel free to modify it to your own preference. Just add your own player's name at the bottom of
the drivers listing.

Le Mans tracks for the 24 hour races have this for your pitboard location:
pit_board= -7.0 7990.0 -100.0 100.0
This is the historically correct location for receiving signals from the race team via pitboard. It was
moved to the exit of the Mulsanne Corner following the tragic 1955 accident. A contributing factor
to the awful tragedy was the fact that cars would brake suddenly to make their pitbox after receiving
the signal to pit. Starting in 1956 the signal location was moved to the Mulsanne Corner.

This softens the sky and gives a slight pink glow to some clouds while leaving the horizon over the main

For me I will make a subfolder in my track folder to hold these settings for use in simulating the
transformation from day to full darkness.

Hmmmm. That's strange, I could have swore I copied & pasted Greg's values over my original post which was on the wrong side of the track.
Well I can tell you that with the setting in post #23 the pitboard appears just as you round the Mulsanne Corner and is displayed to near the end of the signalling area on the right hand side. Maybe Greg can drop by & give us his take on it.
Edit - Oh I see Greg edited his post at #24 one minute after I edited mine at #23.
