He pitted infront of me some time later so I stayed out for one more and came out way ahead, not sure why. ...
From the car.ini for each car

BMW:
[PIT_STOP]
TYRE_CHANGE_TIME_SEC=10            ; time spent to change each tyre

ALFA:
[PIT_STOP]
TYRE_CHANGE_TIME_SEC=20            ; time spent to change each tyre

That's why. And I might change cars.


Apart from that a ding dong race, took Bruce out early by out braking myself, took Joe out as described above but mostly took myself out on the second lap whilst leading. >:(
But none of it spoilt my race, except that I didn't feel the Alfa gave me any advantage especially down the straights, only thing going for it is that 4WD lets me avoid a lot of spins as you just keep your boot into it and let the front wheels drag you out. ;)

...Thanks to Small Block Hero and Bazza for the AC Legends Mods.
Hope you're looking forward to my version of the Lola that fixes many of their mistakes and adds the 3.0 litre version as well. 8) 8) 8)

I found it tricky in the early races, the Lolas don't have a brake lamp  making rather hard!  Didn't spoil my race, just one of those incidents.

Only had driven, practiced and raced that track and car that night of the race so I was trying to get a decent setup in a small time frame. The Lola is nice to drive but limited setup time made my brakes a little uncomfortable under hard stomping lol.

First lap of the restarted race saw me drift a little wide on cold tyres and lost steering as I drifted off the circuit into the wall. I thought my race was done when I re-entered the track in last position.
Noticeably catching up to the back of the pack, overtaking one by one and caught up to Seanus and Joe. Unfortunately for me, Seanus was extremely unpredictable when trying to pass and hit the brakes on multiple occasions to lock up the front wheels and drift off circuit. Happened at least 4 times until I caught up yet again and witnessed Seanus and Joe colliding and spinning after the last corner. Took the advantage and finally passed. Somehow I predicted that would happen with the erratic driving I saw.

Later in the race, seeing the leaders pitting and I'm putting in consistent laps, saw my position climb to top 3 and my own strategic pit stop saw me slide in to position 3 with plenty of gap between 4th place. Only needed to finish the remainder laps and complete the race.
