We have found a sollution to the problem, will put a post up later. The short version is that the pit strategy you create MUST be the strategy highest up in the strategy list.

Yeah I did that for the 1st race so that the game would only see one pit option,but I still got the alternate,I'm sure we can find a way around this .

Hmm...I did 3 tests with various strategys. No matter how I put the strategys the game always choose the one on top which is why I believed that if you have the correct one on top it will work.
The other sollution is to only have one strategy...

We have a new driver that will be testing with us tonight, @WilliamGibsonTV . The testing is to see how his internet is holding up from California. He has done some practise with @iSuperScrub in Tier 1 and it seems to have worked well.
Welcome to the league @WilliamGibsonTV (y)

Yes as yabba says if someone else can save screenshots of results just in case that would be good.

I'll attempt to stream the race tonight for the first time but I'm not confident in it working!

If anyone else isn't here could you please let me know asap. And @WilliamGibsonTV if you could send me a friend request that would be ace. Same name as on here. Peace

Great race guys. Really good fun. Apologies to @Justin Heun if I'd known you were coming I'd have hung on for a few minutes before starting qualy.

Didn't stream because it shrank my screen down and had bloody chat window down the side! I have no friends to chat at me! So I'm going to try and upload my replay tomorrow. Psn went down pretty much straight after the race.

Well done @Manx57 that was intense! I haven't seen what the time difference was but I think I'd got my front wheel alongside you! And @WilliamGibsonTV with a debut podium! @RGT hayc who would've been right up there had it not been for a horror spin and @Play4Stefano my old buddy, good little battle there as usual.

Special shout out to my bone idle pit crew who were standing around having a fag when I wanted my tyres changed. Blowing raspberrys as I drove out on old tyres was a nice touch. You're fired

Quality not quantity guys

Q5:
R:1
In quali I messed up my fast laps and had to settle for a banker in the last minute. The race started badly when I moved too soon at the green light stopped then set off again but I got a drive through penalty. Took the penalty next time around and then just put my head down and made no mistakes. Over half the race gone and I found myself in first position so I tried to keep it smooth not intending to pit, @Griff1894 was catching me the laps were ticking by and the time between us was coming down until we had the last two laps showdown .... I clung on to cross the line just in front of him phew. Good race everyone.
