yeah thats what i thought the reason was. thing is though, isnt that still what you get now? as people still put themselves in groups so you still have different levels of experience mixed up. I seem to remember open pit lane working a lot better as by around 2 everyone was out of rubber and you could go out and do tons of laps on an almost empty track. though maybe there wasnt as many cars that time? maybe worth considering giving it another try?
