View Full Version : Timed Races Issue

21-01-2018, 02:04
I've recently been having some fun running timed custom races against the AI but today I came across a weird problem. The whole race ran smoothly and I looked set to finish 3rd in my class but after crossing the line after the timer counted down to 0:00 I wasn't met with the race over screen. I figured it was just a case of the game running to the rule where the race ends after the leader in the top class crosses the line so I carried on for 1 more lap (this was the first time I'd run one where the class I was running in wasn't the top class in the race). Coming around the final corner I suddenly noticed that all the other cars were filing into the pit lane as if they'd just completed a cool down lap. Being too committed to my line to follow them in I drove across the finish line and was then met with the normal completed race screens. As the results screen appeared I noticed I'd suddenly jumped to the lead of my class and past several other cars, obviously as a result of them slowing to enter the pit lane.

This seems like a very strange issue and really soured me on what was to that point a very enjoyable race. It seems like either that final lap is a cool down lap, in which case the results should be frozen when each car crosses the line after 0:00 or the AI shouldn't be programmed to enter the pits when they have 'finished' the race.

Anyone else noticed this problem or can suggest a solution?

I just had a race at daytona and even though i crossed the finish line after 000, We still had to do one more lap. Expect for me the AI keep racing along with me that extra lap. I just thought it was something about the rules since in my hundreds of hour playing the game it was the first time that extra lap happened.

Interesting. My race was also at Daytona so maybe a possible bug with that specific track? The AI ran at race pace for that entire extra lap for me up until the pit lane entry where they all pulled in.
