    Pit Lane Exit
    As there is no clearly defined pit exit lane, remain to the right hand side of the track before taking turn one. Returning to the racing line (left side) before-hand could lead to an accident.

    Turn 3
    The exit of Turn 3 has a thick red and white curb with a brown/grey curb on the outer edge of it. This outer curb is considered as the track boundary (highlighted by blue line). Drivers are allowed to have four wheels on the large red/white curb.

    Turn 5
    Time gains can be made by carrying more speed through Turn 5 and running wide over the rumple strips with more than two wheels off the track. Below is an example of acceptable car positioning.

    So two wheels need to be left of the blue line at T5?

    That's correct :)

    The blue line isn't there in game, I just added it in to emphasize the boundary of the track for that particular corner. Basically since there is no white or yellow line in place on that corner exit, the kerb serves as the track boundary, so drivers will be penalised if they get caught with more than 2 wheels off the Tarmac repeatedly.

    @Chris Stacey seeing as the general discussion thread for this new season isn't up where could we post about team amendments?

    I had two teams entered and one driver from each is having to drop out. Is it possible to have the remaining two drivers form in to just the one team left over? Where would you like the information on the drivers taking part and leaving sent to?

    :)

    There is a unique curb on the exit of turn three. There are basically two parts or layers on the curb, any clarification on what will be considered track boundaries would be great.

    You can see there are the two parts, I would almost think that you can base the boundary off the outside curb? That does seem to be part of the track under the first part.

    So which one of these are we using as the edge?

    Thanks, and I am looking forward to round 1!

    Thanks for bringing this up Ryan :thumbsup:
    So the league rules on track cutting state that,
    In this case, there is a red line separating the big white and red inside curb, from the grey/brown outside curb. So the red line is the track limit.

    However, In the second screenshot you provided, there is no red line as the inside curb merges directly with the outside curb. In this case it is the large inside curb that is the limit because when there is no line to define the track edge, the inside aspect of the curb becomes the track boundary.

    Chris can you please clarify. This is the same curb just different screen shots. You said that it is the red line between the red and white curb and the grey curb. Then in the red section you make it sound like it is not. I personally would think the red line like you mentioned is the boundary but I just want to know for sure! Sorry for the hassle, but I imagine I am not the only one that isn't certain. Thanks!

    In case it helps here is a shot from the front of the curb.

    Alright so, I've just checked it in game.

    The outer curb (the brown part) is going to be considered as the track boundary (highlighted blue line). So no more than two wheels outside that. But running any wheels beyond that curb will put you on the grass so you'll lose time anyway. I'll add it to the OP.

    I do not see the thread to confirm attendance.

    18.30 GMT Race? Time of the qualy?

    You don't need to confirm attendance on a per round basis anymore. No idea why it was done in the previous iteration, but on Friday before I head off to bed I'll post the confirmed driver list (everyone who hasn't reported absent) in here with all of you tagged.

    But yeah, we don't need you guys to confirm attendance because attendance is expected anyway. All we need is an absence report if you are not going to attend a particular round. :)

    As per the sign up thread, practice starts at 18:30 GMT
