my home track is Citadel Clash, only two drivers accepted the challenge, both lost :). On the second account, my home track is Barcelona rev. and a lot of people fight me every day, sometimes they win with me. The summary is that easy Barcelona gives me more points than difficult Citadel

I would suggest some changes in Gauntlet points system.

And it is penalisation.

Each quit race should be as win for defender and lose for attacker.

If we have 5 tickets, it should be in fashion that you have to use them all otherwise you lost -15 for each ticket. So, it is up to you will you play and lose and gain some other racer, or just lose your points.

This and last season, I have only one challenge against me and I won.
Last track was Satellite Rush and this season Clifftop Run. This season I have no lose or win in my home track :(

I played yesterday, and lost 4, and one win. I have no problem with that.

I go back and forth on this. Often I just run the races and accept the results. Other times I might quit a race, especially if I'm using extra tickets on the last day and I don't want to place lower and lose Gauntlet badge rewards. But there is an imbalance in Gauntlet in that the home track can be run multiple times without depleting tickets until a great run is achieved, whereas a challenger can only run the race once. I see a problem with that. To be really even, perhaps a challenger should be allowed to run a challenge race multiple times without ticket loss, or perhpas be given up to 5 chances per challenge race, but must then accept the results, win or lose. That would seem better to me.

My second Pro Gauntlet season at 1st place. In Elite Guantlet I'm at place 22 and that's probably the best I'll ever do there.

Day 1, 5 races on NS. Typically do two to three days on NS with mixed results then activate TB to finish in top 50. But this weeks track is Market Square and I don't know if it is a good time or is it because my rank of cars used in my defence is visible to challengers? I chose the Dodge Dart just because it was a novelty for me.  5 challenges all unsuccessful. Position 76 without even trying. I guess an excellent time might be around 44 seconds?

Probably they got tricked by the "low rank" and challenged you unboosted, errors, etc.
You scored a good time though!

You've got a good lap time. I couldn't beat that and apparently few others can either. I really don't pay much attention to the last cars. Instead I look at my typical lap time to see how many cars will actually be used, then look at the oponent's cars to see how I match up, and use that for my decision. Though if there are other choices that I find acceptable, I'll usually choose a challenge where someone doesn't low-ball the last cars, simply because I think it's a bit sneaky, the cars they do use are probably fully tuned, and they've taken their home run very seriously to get a great time. But obviously some players are lured in.

I find it hard to believe that there are still racers not aware of this as a possibility since this mode has been introduced so long ago.
"Even monkeys stood upright at one point".......David. Alien Covenant. Love that movie ;)
Oh, another unsuccessful challenge puts me at position 54 less then 100 points behind Ylmztrk and fkw123. I never reach top 10 :(

Lost 3 Gauntlet races today in EL because of skids.  :x    Each ticket should allow up to 3 races against a challenger, and then the results are final. That would go a long way to make up for the lousy GL physics and game crashing.

In Pro Gauntlet the game crashed twice in a row costing me 2 tickets, which meant I could only get in 4 races.  :x
