The Deckhand, Pole Leveling and Timer Bonuses are disabled for 30 days on new poles/addons... in order to keep racing fair for all players. Switch to an older pole to avoid this error.
The Deckhand and Timer Bonuses are not allowed during Contests, as it makes for an unfair advantage. However, you can deactivate contest catches
in your settings to re-activate the Deckhand Bonus during a contest. Travel Bonuses will not work to newly released locations for 1 week, as it'd create an unfair advantage.
