    I think I know there is a penalty for crossing the white line onto the racing line when exiting the pit lane but is there a penalty for crossing the white line when racing onto the pit exit lane?
    Sorry for the dopey question guys.
    Thanks

    Is the penalty for crossing the white line when exiting the pits simulated in AC? I don't remember. In any case, driving onto the pit lane exit area while racing is not a penalty. Indeed, sometimes the pit lane exit is right on the racing line.

    You are right. When on the track you can cross this line. When you are exiting pits, you shall not! That's because if you are on the track you will see if someone is coming out of the pitlane and you are much faster. But if you are exiting pits you shall not get in front of the fast cars!
    I remember a few incidents in F1 where this was a big discussion.
    Here is one I remember between Ralf and Michael Schumacher. Ralf got a 10s pit lane penalty.

    Then there was this incident from Bahrain a couple weeks ago. Sainz didn't cross the pit exit line but he clearly left his brain in the pits. :roflmao:
