I think I am stuck in an inactive league. :thumbsdown:

I am the only one who qualified for the last race and everyone else pits every 10 laps in every race with both drivers, except for one team.

Anyone out there care to share their pit strategies? Lap 18 and 36 has worked for me so far, 2 races, 2 firsts, 2 thirds. Though everyone else is running about 1/2 a second faster a lap, they are pitting 4-5 times a race.

I've only got $45K... this may be because I just pimped my motorhome thingy :p

I've been putting the first pit stop btn laps 15 & 20, I've not had a finish lower than 5th so I must be doing something right!

i've been using a calculator to figure out the best combo of pit stops for each track


which is why i've never had lower then 1st place

To help you decide, you are shown the number of laps for the race, how long it takes to go through the pit lanes (don't forget, to pit it takes the time it says, plus 0.3 seconds for every lap of fuel you put in the car) and finally, the amount of time added to your lap for every lap of fuel you carry, meaning if you pit on lap 10, you have 10 laps of fuel onboard, and if the fuel penalty is 0.1 seconds, thats 1 second extra on your first lap of the race, 0.9 on the second lap, 0.8 on the third race etc.

as for pit strategies i won 1st and 2nd in the last race with my first driver doing 2 stops and my 2nd on a one stop. And i told 1 to push and the other to take risks.
