Ok, I've done over eighty races, but this is the first time I've seen this. I'm actually lapping these two guys as I do the final turn before the ultimate run down the back straight. And yes, I've sure I was in the lead the whole time:




Now what makes this interesting (OK, interesting to me) is that as you can see, Jeriah's horses are beaten all to crap, while Joash's horses are fine. As I passed them, Joash was beating on Jerish's horses. Now what I think happened is that Joash has been stuck there because he's been beating on Jeriah so much that Jerish's horses are all used up. Certainly it isn't from Jeriah pushing his horses that much since I've got a lap on him as we enter the last turn before the finish straight. Which means that it is apparently possible for an AI auriga to get so focused on beating up an opponent that he lets the race go by him just so he can beat on this one poor guy.

Or maybe I'm crazy...

Maybe they just really really dislike each other?

See the "Whipped to Death" thread. Maybe this aggressive driver adopted my strategy to take out rival drivers.
