    Hi,
    I was doing an AI (115) race with WTCC 2014 (24 car field) at Bathurst. The length was set to 30 min with Mandatory Pits off. When about 5 min left, I was on 6th position and 2 cars in front of me pitted. The next lap other 3 did the same. I was able to complete the race without refueling, with like 5L left.

    Why did AI go to pits just before the end of the race? Is it starting fuel miscalculation or just bug in AI behaviour?

    Probably AI thinking they wont make the whole race. Currently they and player start with full tanks, cause fuel calcs arent correct yet. It's being worked on.

    Is there any workaround for the problem, except adding mandatory pit stops?

    You could chose a longer or shorter race length.
    Other than that, gonna have to wait for the fix I'm afraid.
