Jim Clark And The Mysterious Pit Stop

03 Apr 2020

Here's something that I've never seen before and didn't know could happen in GPL...

Running the 65 Mod at Watkins Glen, I was running 4th late in the race when I noticed Clark had dropped out of the lead. Great! I'm on for a podium. But then... last few laps, suddenly Clark is behind me and closing rapidly. Not many laps left, and I beat him by 2 seconds.

OK, so I go back and look at the replay as I'm curious. See Clark slow down on the back of the circuit, run slowly round to the pits, stop right at the far end of the pit lane, then after about 10s off he goes at full speed to the end of the race. Now, I've seen the AI run low on fuel and have to stop for a top-up, but in this case Spence in the other Lotus didn't have any trouble.

Only thing I can think of is maybe Clark got a fuel leak and stopped to top up (as AI refuelling is known behaviour), or can the AI get a problem that is fixable in the pits? Maybe it happens in other races from time to time but I've never noticed before?
