What determines the starting position you get? Big advantage to get first so would be good to know!

Shouldn't be all random and something with the previous race I think. You don't get first by just placing last in the race before though.

It seems to have a lot to do with your previous race. It feels like when I have a really poor run I get to start near or at the front in the following race. Not necessarily 'on the pole', but in the front half of the pack.

That's just the way it 'feels' to me though, I have no idea if that's really how it works.

Your last race dictates your starting position.

If you finish first, you'll start last. If you finish last, you'll start first, unless other people join in which case you start behind them.

For example, you finish 18/18 but two people join the lobby. Instead of starting first, you'll start third behind the two new entries.

Ty! It did work that way, I must have missed new players joining / replacing others when I thought it didn't.
