    So, I just did my first custom race. 15 laps at Spa, ended up lasting 37 minutes. Qualified in 9/24, finished in 6th, ~80% AI difficulty.

    It was fun. Next time, I'll set it at either 2x or 3x tire wear for such a race. AI stopped twice for tire changes.

    This was the first time I did a race over 20 minutes in length. Im surprised at how I stayed concentrated throughout the whole thing. Didn't stop to think about anything else for a second... Time flew right by.

    30-minute race using MP4 GT3 with tyre wear = 4x worked fine for me, I'm a fairly smooth driver and manage tyre wear well.

    If you divide the race length (in seconds) by your average lap time (in seconds) you get the ideal number of laps.
    Race length 30 minutes = 1800 seconds; average lap time 2:26 = 146 seconds.
    1800/146 = 12.33, so around 12 laps if you take into account pitstop duration.

    Personally I like doing race weekend with 30-60 minute practice, 15-minute qualifying, 30 minute race. 30 minute race with tyre wear = 4x works well for the classes I like (FA, FB, LMP1, LMP2, GT3).
    Does this work for for Formula A??

    I just spent all weekend testing in formula a then I went into career mode where I found out the Ai don't pit.... very frustrating......

    So if I did a 60 minute race in formula A with real tyre wear will the Ai pit??

    I'm on pc too by the way.

    For a 60-minute FA race tyre wear = 2x would probably be better.
