Stalling when warmed up...

Car running beautifully except after about 15 mins where if it's had a run on an open road (ie not traffic) and i come to stop at a junction, or even slow down to make a turn, the engine cuts out. It starts again, no problem. but this has happened a few times now and I'm wondering what itcould be..

I notice a lot of soot around the exhaust and wonder if I'm running just a little rich causing it to stall itself with fuel when the revs drop - is this likely?? I used to have a track car that did this all the time but mechanic told me it was tuned to run lumpy at idle to improve the performance on the track (is this a load of cobblers?)

Any thoughts much appreciated...

Check the engine intake boot/ducting for cracks and tears. Electrician tape can be use as a temporary repair of cracks/ tears to verify the effect on RPM stabilization with closed throttle when coming to a stop with warm idle.
