I was doing some races with the Thundercars mod at Willow Springs and I noticed that a during the race at least 75% of the AI cars would drive to the pits and retire. I than applied the 'Disable AI car limp back to pits' option in GEM, but after that the staring grid at Willow Springs has now changed.

I've tried reïnstalling the track and disabling the patch in GEM again, but I still get the wrong starting grid. I also found out that now the Can-Am tracks (Donnybrooke, Watkins Glen etc.) are listed as unnistalled in my season in GEM, however they still work when I select them in game.

Other mods still have the correct starting grid by the way, so it's only a problem with the Thundercars.

Which files are actually changed when applying the 'Disable AI car limp back to pits' patch?

When you check 'Disable AI car limp back to pits' option in GEM a line is added to the mod specific trackXX.ini.
If this file does not exists it just creates one with the single line, this is the culprit for strange pits and grids ;)

Just copy the line and put it in the track.ini and delete the mod trackXX.ini

Thanks, that fixed it. :)

I also read that the ai could go to the pit because they run out of fuel, but I can't find more info about that.
