    I don't know exactly the tire percentage, but the btcc for example in croft the first two races are 18 laps and they used soft tires, in fact from qualifying to race there is only a second difference, I imagine because of the weight of the fuel, the record is the Same for the classification, although not everyone used the same compound, in short, Gooyear tires must last something because nobody stops to change wheels
    1st race 18 laps: 1:21.468/1:22.498
    2nd race 18 laps: 1:21.468/1:21.965
    3rd race 15 laps: 1:21.468/1:22.165
    the 3rd race was 15 laps and they did practically the same times

    Certainly that's how it should be, but I don't know if the BTCC has finally been productive for them, I have my doubts...

    But even in a 20 minute race, you can see cars that drove aggressively at the start fade near the end and some mid-pack runners who protected their tires can make a charge.

    if they stop in the pit, you can forget about the race... obviously if you take care of your tires and go strong you will have a better end of the race... I don't really understand what "charge" means, I'm sorry I don't speak English

    Charge is....extra effort. If you have protected your tires then you can try for that little extra pace compared to drivers who were too aggressive early which causes their tire's performance to fade late in the race.

    I am not sure this is very realistic from the AI, not even that much of a curb to hit.



    Meanwhile I was miles up the road because the AI are so slow. Even on medium tires with the AI on softs at 120% I was still nearly a second faster a lap.

    Probably some overreacting football player driving...
