Also had issues with dives that never shouldve taken place, had like 5 super close moments where i needed to bail from my racing line to avoid lmps. If it wasn't preseason it would be stewards material for sure.
I can fully admit that some of my overtakes (#74 LMP1, Second half of race) was a bit on the stupid side, the maggots/beckets section was already hard to find a gap combined with the really inconsistent entry line to the first apex seemingly allowing me to sneak through only to spook people off the new line. I’ve certainly learnt this track and the overtake zones. I will say that the GTEs do know to hold their exit lines which is a nice change from iLMS

Agreed with the LMP comments. I know i made some mistakes in places too when being overtaken but some LMP moves could have just waited a second or so and then be better lined up

Crazy race, a ton of fun. My first time driving the old layout of Silverstone, loved it. Had surprisingly decent pace and brilliant battles throughout. Huge thanks and props to @Bucefal and @Rin Hato for the battles in the first and final stints, pity about the way it ended but **** happens.

Format is good, 3 hours is pretty tough as a solo driver but it's doable. Didn't have many problems with LMPs apart from at maggots and becketts a couple of times. Rest of the track it was fine.

Regarding the grid issue where some LMP's could start in middle of GTE's, I like the idea from @Merlin Cooper where we could use lap 1 to sort it out (y)

hmm that is a bit of a wired thing, as in the official series they normally get it's sorted by class, but ofc it helps if @Stevie had LMP as Class 1 and not as class 2 ;) Hopefully
