Indeed Sam, it seemed so strange. I though I lost it on the brakes but didn't have that problem at all during the race in any corner. Probably some server lag, because it was nothing I could do and also there seemed to me there was plenty of space between us. Usually when you lock up the rear, you can catch it by easing on the brakes.
I had to do the last lap with 1.2 L of fuel. Got me to the end but lost 4th :) Better than a DNF.
I didn't even have XD installed to see the fuel/lap as I reinstalled and formatted everything a few months ago and since then I didn't touch the wheel at all.
Good effort though coming back from 15th :) Worked out a sweat.

I enjoyed it 100% :D
I took the Mustang as I didn't know other cars too well.
To my surprise the car was slow on straights even with the lowest wing. All in all I was a sitting duck on the banking.
I managed to tweak the car in half an hour and get the rear diff to work it's best here.
I put in the longest gearbox so probably that's why I was loosing a lot on the straights. Still to 4th gear, I was accelerating as the other guys.
Top battle with Bryce! I spun once on braking as I was a bit impatient and jumped on the inside but got the door slammed. Managed to close the gap again and we changed paint a few times but all in the spirit of battle. I was a bit sad to see him drop towards the end. I think I might have needed a bit of luck to be in front of him. I was counting on the tires actually, which held very well even on the last laps of the second stints.
I didn't have any strategy and calculated in my head on the fly how should I approach the last stint. I decided to go for a full tank and tires for the last part and got to the finish with 2 L. Not bad :)
I wish I could have the legs to fight to the finish with the podium finishers but this was the best I could get from the car.
I never learn to prep in advance :)) A better strategy, actually any strategy and more than jumping in the car 30 minutes before the start would have done wonders. Still that's me enjoying without effort.
