Quick question about race two at Oulton...

It's reverse-grid from the positions you finished in race one, but what about retirements? Do they start at the front or at the back? In real racing retired cars start behind all of the finishers usually, but I just watched some footage from the race on PC and they were put to the front.

Sorry if this has been mentioned, I've read through the rules and league info but didn't see it!

Personally they should start from the back. If they've not finished the race then they shouldn't get priority of starting at the front. Doing it the other way could also be used tactically - i.e finishing mid way but need big points then you could retire and get to start from the front in race 2 allowing you to get the big points. Also starting from the back would mean that there's more of an emphasis to finish the race. Just my opinion though.

What you say makes a lot of sense and I agree with that. And it is what @manbearpig said how it's is done in real life.
