2.1 Being lapped
● We are running with the in-game rules & flags system, which means that game should alert you with a blue flag when you are about to be lapped. When receiving a blue flag or know that a car is going to lap you and is approaching from behind, you should let them past safely and without interfering with their race.
In single class races, this is done best by the car that is being shown a blue flag moving off the racing line and easing on the accelerator on a straight, or lifting / braking early, and/or giving up the corner and racing line to let the lapping car pass.
For multi-class races, this is done best by the car that is being shown a blue flag and being overtaken by a faster class car remaining on the racing line, and possibly easing on the accelerator to facilitate a safe and quick pass if the scenario allows for it. For more info and tips on lapping in multi-class, see the 'Lapping in Multi-Class Racing' thread for the relevant league.
In either situation, both drivers are responsible for doing this in a safe way.
The driver who is being lapped can help the faster car to pass by lifting/braking early. The slower car can hold his line when the faster car is going for the overtake. The slower car should let the faster car pass in the next few corners.
Also, you can see if the driver is a lap higher than you by looking at the mini-map or relative board - the car will be highlighted by a red colour, instead of regular white dot or name.
● As a means of helping with blue flags, we advise the leaders to flash their lights at cars due to be lapped. This should not be done excessively. This is their cue to inform that the driver on the lead lap is about to pass the driver being lapped, and should let the lapping car pass at the next safe available opportunity.
Flashing your lights at a competitor you are racing for position is not to be used as a "distraction technique" or in anger at an incident.
● If you are going faster than a car that has lapped you, do not attempt to unlap yourself unless it is safe to do so and doesn't hinder the car in front.
You video is not working for me.
Yes, still using. Also, I'm playing on black and white TV, using a wood wheel and typing this message on a typewriter.
