Comical new bug in The Trial. AI gets extra help

Saw it happen on Friday night. Six players join The Trial. I’m one of them. Five of us are assigned to blue team as usual. One player is assigned to a 7th slot on the red AI team. That player runs the races and scores points for red team. Ugh.

Actually that would be good! It would be a challenge to help the Ai to win.

I wonder if that driver gets credit for winning the Trial if the AI wins the event.

I’m wondering same thing and was it actually a bug or someone cheating in some way.

Had this happen today in the Series 4 Autumn Trial. A real player was put on the AI team 7-5. He dropped out after the 1st race.
