I won Renault Clio Cup and then for rest of seasons there's invitation races.
I noticed not so fun issue with classic touring cars (Mercedes 300 and Ford Escort RS1600).
Brands Hatch qualifying. I drove 3 laps and got time 1:53.something and it begun raining. So I went pitbox to wait if weather improves.
It didn't, but times of AI cars did and they were very close to my dry hotlaps - and on rain!
Race of 8 laps.
I started from pole and I did decent laps - not knowing laptimes since bug disabling head up display. (Note: Before game is patched, avoid going option "monitor" in pitbox, because it disables HUD. You can turn it back only going far back in menus at controllers options). In race I had no visual information about tire temperature, gears, gaps to rivals, no sector times nor laptimes.
However, I felt driving well and no mistakes and soon I didn't see cars from mirrors. During lap 5 it begun to rain and last two laps were absolutely soaking. I used slicks like every other cars on track and I did flawless laps though corners were slower and tricker and wheelspin on acceleration. At the end of 7th lap I saw from mirror few cars getting more closer to me and during last lap they did grown scarily bigger in my mirror. Middle of main straight just before finishline, second car was taking position to overtake me and was next to my rear bumber. I won race however.
I did save replay of the race and I estimated AI car behind me catch me 10 seconds per lap in soaking wet conditions. I won this battle, but it's highly annoying if weather doesn't effect on AI cars at all. They practically drove faster on wet than on dry!
