So when I get really ahead of everyone else in a race my car slows down noticeably and people catch up. What is this black magic?

It's a stupid setting in the pre-race lobby called "Catchup".

 

Another retarded setting that Rockstar left ON by default so that sh*tty players could make tons of mistakes and still win races.

 

The host of the race has the ability to turn it off, but most people never look at settings and just want to get into the action as quickly as possible.

Blame it on the catchup setting that the host of the race left on, it does exactly what you just said above.

Oh em gee, really? I havent played alot of races but I thought it was weird how people can catch up to first/second place so easily at times.

 

Whats the point of "racing" if the game just helps the ones at the back get back to the front /sigh

Oh well, I dont play alot of races anyway.
