Alright, I mentioned this in discord but to have it on record, properly, here it is. I will, unfortunately, not be able to make it to the this race as I will be out of town for 8 days. Good luck to all y'all out there and have some good fun.

I did yesterday a few laps under race conditions and managed to drive low 1:40s. But I think, there is still room for improvement, because the right tires didn't had any temperature. Just posting this to give a first clue about the pace until I spin out ;)

Thought I would ask about track limitations here as I know the game allows you too use the kerb/astro on exit of turn 1 turn 2 and the final corner. Will we get a penalty if we use it ?
1.4.1
● Stay within the track boundaries with at least two tyres at all times. The track boundaries are defined by the white lines, NOT by the edge of the kerbs. Cutting corners, or extending the track, to gain an advantage is not allowed. Drivers found to be persistently breaking this rule will be penalised retrospectively.
Just seeking clarity

The game may allow you to go over the white line, but we do not. If you're found to be repeatedly abusing track limits, it is likely that you will be penalised. Basically, keep 2 tyres on track at all times.

That's a shame though. I feel people are gonna go wide all over the place, mostly at the final corner. It just feels so natural for this track :p

You can watch the replay afterward and make inquiries. ;)
I'm not gonna waste my time checking every corner of everybody of relevance. Plus, even if they go over the white line, there is no way that I can see how much they gained/lifted.

Well, don't complain then :)
PS: It's not your problem if the guy lifted or not. It's the steward task to check if the guy lifted enough or not.

The way I see it, is that it's so much unnecessary work, when the current ingame penalty system is very good. I think that allowing 4 wheels off-track at a few corners is a good trade-off to eliminate any doubt and not waste our time to pointless ****. There are a few tracks in irl racing where driver go 4wheels off-track all the time where it's now just become standard to go wide. COTA 2017 is a good example, or hockenheim in DTM.

I'm not trying to convince the hosts to change it, because they wont. Rules are made and should be adhered to. This is just how I feel about it.

Yeah, I get your point.
I kinda agree with you but I understand why they decided to stick with the AOR rules.

I cannot agree more, especially with this track + rain. I wish it would be more pragmatic and would be more strict for elite and less for AM.

For me it’s just fun and don’t want this turn to ‘you report me so I will report you’.

For me got the message, pass yellow sausage fully from left in T1 and don’t go to green T1, T2 and last corner. Will try my best. Good news I could see elite drivers still do great times following this rule.

The problem with allowing you to go off track at certain places is that is causes more problems than it solves. If we let you go all 4 wheels off at Turn 1, people would start saying 'How come you can do it at turn 1 but not 2?' 'Why is it allowed at RBR but not Silverstone?' and things like that. That's why we have one simple rule that applies to every corner on every track, the white line is the limit. That way no one can argue about it.

About the penalty system, in my opinion it was better in patch 3 than it is now. In patch 3, if you ran wide, you would have to slow down or get a penalty, it was that simple. The only problem was that the amount you had to slow down was too harsh. After patch 4, the detection isn't as good, you can track extend and get away with it. Even if you do get a slow down penalty, they usually disappear without you lifting at all.

We all now the rules...and game...sometimes you can get away without penalty.
But, most important thing is:"Did someone gain time with cut/extend or it was just a mistake in entry/exit??
If it is a mistake, then no gain of course. How we are going to prove this, that is the question.

That's pretty obvious, in my opinion.
If you countersteer for example.
If you didn't make a mistake and still think you're a bit off track, just lift the gaz pedal and you should be fine. :)
