    What's the rule on the first corner?
    2 wheels inside the line or can we use all the green?

    PLEASE say all the green, PRETTY please ;)

    at Brands Hatch the rule at RD was and still is that we are allowed to use the green part at the exit of T1 like it was when it was there in real life.

    Thanks for the clarification.
    I thought that's what it might be, but the rule's always been white line for the races i've been in (not many).

    Now I know.

    Cheers Yves.

    and just to make things more interesting ... judging by the skins in the skinpack looks its gonna be like this:

    Amazon Team
    Yves Larose
    Arunas Linkevicius
    Chris Gallop


    P1800 Team
    Martin Leyfield
    Jorge Alves
    Rupe Wilson

    What team you choosed Rupe?

    I'm Amazon.
    The P1800 has nice brakes, but the gearing's worse for Brands and it's a little less responsive IMO.
    Tried doing a 0-100-0 test with mate richie (who'll hopefully be signing up), but the results were .... inconsistant at BEST.
  15. I have no working pedals and have big problems at turn one due to using buttons for gas and brake and loosing the back end over the turn one bump.

    I have a work around I think but its scarey:
    1. Brake and turn and get oversteer with car pointing at the inside barrier (heading for doom and destruction)
    2. Opposite lock and a bit of gas to drift out back onto the line just in time and thus miss the inside barrier.

    This often involves cutting the inside of the corner but I can't do much about it sorry. I will not be fast and cutting T1 is no advantage so I trust there will be no complaints (the best line through turn one is definitely not cutting the corner as the inside kerb costs you speed.
  16. There seems to be an exception for green run off areas. Same seems to be for Imola and Valencia. At last years F1 Monza race many F1 drivers where going over the white line on the exit of Ascari without penalty even though the rule book says drivers should not go over white lines with all four wheels. The video below shows you where the line is on the exit of Ascari.
