    Hello racers,

    There's a thing that confuses me lately. To keep it simple a really quick questions: How, generally, is the track limited? Crossing which parts is allowed and which forbidden?

    As far as I know, at least 2 tyres of different axes of a car need to be on track ("inside" white lines) not to count it as a cut. But what happens when it comes to kerb, astroturf etc?

    Just look at these scenarios:




    Isn't it obviously cutting the track? And most of them were driving like this like the entire race!

    @Edit
    I'm not sure if the videos are properly set for you guys (the parts I wanted to show you). For me it's not really. Just in case: look at 23:00 and 34:00.

    If you keep at least 2 tyres within kerbs you are good in RaceRoom. Astroturf is not considered part of the track. There are of course some exceptions to this rule in some tracks where you can go further out and not receive a penalty.

    So, according to what you say, the kerb zone is considered as an extension of the white lines?

    Precisely. Very strange lines through some corner because of this too so take advantage of it.
