Sorry if this is the wrong place to bring this up but are there any examples of cutting and what is/isn't allowed?

Is two whole wheels/tyres on the tarmac at all times (including the painted white line) a good general rule? Basically no part of the inside tyres should be past the white line assuming an inside cut.

I've not raced with the club before so I want to makes sure I'm driving fairly and within the rules, personally I hate cutting and wish sims addressed it more.
Will be only my 2nd GTL Racing Club event. When I first joined I was given this link - it's about Grand Prix Legends but the principles are the same. This is how I try and go about my driving.

And yeah, two wheels inside the lines at all times I believe.

ok as you look at the track edge you see a white line it goes all round the track on both sides this is the white line we talk about. the pictures below the car is placed in the max positon off track the we would allow. yes there are times when you slide over this line .. but what we say is if this happens dont gain an advantage form this and no overtaking past this position of track. if you do this on a few corners a little lift of the gas to show you know you went to fast ...:)
exception to the rule if cars crash in front of you you can drive over this area to go round them rather than crash into them:)

you may see cars on the server in practice time finding the correct lines through corners but on race day this white line rule will be used.
As you drive round the track every entry and exit is the same rule
click on the pictures to get them bigger

the pictures above show the max the car can go off track when racing...
Yes you may see drivers wider than this mistakes may happen but this is the rule we follow:)

Thanks for the pictures and post, looks like I may have to be more conservative at the chicane at the top of the hill, I find it quite difficult from within cockpit view to judge where my wheels are as it comes at you fast and has quite a tight angle. From looking at the pictures as long as any of the car and wheels doesn't go beyond the white kerbing my inside wheels should stay inside the white lines.

I'm having a somewhat bad day, and running on about 5 nights of very little sleep. So, I think I'm going to crash on the sofa this evening, instead of into another driver. Have a great race all.
 
Ohh god too much rules, can't process!
On a more serious note, my back is acting up so I can't see myself behind the wheel today, hopefully better by tuesday though! Good race y'all!
