    lapping and beeing lapped ...

    If you don’t mind I’d like to say some words regarding lapping, based on my experience from the last event at Donington and my general understanding of that topic.

    First I have to state, that all drivers were very kind and tried to do their best to let faster drivers lap them. However there were some tricky situations (and one accident for me) because of some misunderstanding.

    Basically there are 2 options to let someone pass.

    • If you are on a straight and a faster driver comes close, go off the racing line and lift the throttle (if necessary). Please do this early enough, so that the closing driver can see your intention. Do not just slow down on the racing line! The faster driver might smash into your rear, because he can not tell your move and when he sees it, it’s too late.
    • If there is no straight just drive your normal racing line and let the faster driver overtake you as he would overtake a direct opponent. But in contrast to a real fight you are very kind to him and assist him getting past you. You can break a little earlier and leave the door wide open so he can easily slip through at the inside.
    Everything else is unpredictable and thus dangerous for both.

    All tracks have parts that are not suitable for overtaking. You should go as normal and good as you can there, without caring about the car behind you and take the next good opportunity to let the faster car pass. It’s no problem for the good driver to adapt to a little less speed but there is a big risk of crashing if you do something the following driver can not predict. (This is usually true for fast corners that are taken at full speed or with just a little lifting where everyone is at the edge of the car.)

    Further comments are very welcome.

    Looking forward to nice racing,

    Nico, this is excellent advice and well explained.
    I think you should post it in a new thread in the Racing Club Paddock forum, so everyone can read it. :thumb:
