    yeh i had similar questions.
    The white lines run on the INSIDE Of the kerbs here.

    Its 2 wheels inside the white lines right?

    So if theres kerb on the outside of the line, you can't have all 4 wheels outside the white line, but 2 on the kerb -
    Can anyone confirm?

    Also just want to say...this is the worst track in motorsport. And unfortunately brings out the worst in rfactors physics too.......
    Kerbs and low speed traction zones + rfactor = fail.#


    14.1 The race "track" is considered the main asphalt surface generally bounded by white lines, grass,
    walls or curbing. Curbs are usually painted in blue/white, green/white or red/white colors. Curbs are
    considered part of the track. The green or grey solid or grasscrete surfaces on the inside of the curbs
    are NOT to be considered as part of the curbs. It is pretty clear and self explanatory using common
    sense at most tracks, but if you do have any doubts then don't hesitate to clear it up with questions to
    the Race Director. The aim of the league is competition on a fair and level playing field. So all
    aspects of rules and definitions must be respected and obeyed by all drivers so that the competition
    does remain even to all. On corners where the inner edge is cut across, at least two wheels must
    remain continually in contact with the defined "track" during their entire passage through the curve.
    The same basic outline is used to measure running wide. The Race Director may set up exceptions
    of the above mentioned rules for certain corners which will be announced on the forums.

    As Long as 2 wheels are on the Kerb, because Kerb is defined as part of the track.

    ADMINISTRATOR - PLease clarify this assumption?
    I got a penalty after the race last year for exactly this problem.

  6. Only the fifth picture would be considered a cut, because you cant touch pitlane line on exit.

    Ok so we follow the pitlane exit line to the end, but is a small cut in the end of the line accepted?
