    i have no answer, so i post here in the support community.

    it's impossilbe to have a clean race with AI at Nordschleife with WTCR 2018 cars, they always crash after the section at 6km Fuchsröhre, and it's a white flag, and the race is destroyed each time.
    Can you fix it maybe ? we need a AI tweak in this section.
    it's after the section 10, at FUCHSROHRE.
    any news ?
    cause each time i race this track (tourist version), there is a big crash with AI, and a yellow/white flag, and the race is ruined.
    does anybody use this track with this car ?

    Is it also happening on the other Nordschleife layouts? The tourist version isn't really intended for races I think.

    That's not tourist, but only Nordschleife.

    yes it's for Nordschleife, not Tourist, for 24H or VLN, I think the race is longer before the Fuchsrohre, so AI are not in a big pack, and there is no crash or less, but for Nordschleife, at this section, AI is always in a big pack, and there is a yellow/white flag with one or ore AI car crashed.

    it's exactly what i have tried to explain, i know WTCR 2018 is very hard to control on the Nordschleife, i have to drive at my best to do a clean lap, but it's what i like.
    Thank you Peter, if Sector3 devs can make a tweak or something, cause the WTCR is now my favorite class and Nordschleife one of my favorite track.

    You also might want to look at Suzuka, I've seen quite a few AI crashes with the WTCR cars in the fast corners there.

    thank you Alex, if you can think about an improvement for AI brake in slow/med turn, cause it's true that AI is a little bit slow in this case, and it's my only regret about AI.

    Of course, I'm currently trying to improve that. It's most useful for me to know which AI, per class, have the biggest problems, or are the best in other areas.That way I work out where to focus most, and also learn which methods are working best.

    I need time to show on a map picture where AI brake too early and too gently that makes it slow. I go two months in holidays, so maybe when I come back i will start the work.
    I don't use all the classes or cars, but i have noticed, it's a general problem, after a straight line and with hairpin, AI brake too early surely and not enough strongly like in my video.


    You have this kind of issue, at Redbull ring, at Brandhatch, but i need time to give more precisions.

    Yeah, the WTCR AI is prone to crashes at various places. Suzuka esses and Bathurst skyline come to mind.

    Thanks for this post, I've worked this morning to improve the WTCR AI and they now race well at all the circuits mentioned in this thread.
