    As this is about Le-mans track in this thread I don't mind the replies, but I would not like to see this turn into a general debate of track limits.



    [​IMG]

    I see what you refer to Graham, on paper this is beyond the track bounder as shown by the white painted track limit line. One could call it a run off area, but the worst offence is you can see that, this is a 90deg turn, by using this area beyond the bounder you are in fact changing the angle of the turn. Therefore able to take it much quicker, if you were also to use the same on the exit, you've now made a 90deg turn something like a 120deg turn.

    This would in affect give you 2 or 3 mph more exit speed for the start of the back straight, and we know what that means. Who ever did this photo was totally wrong, one your altering the track layout and two, it's not very good racing etiquette.

    Which is something we pride our selves on here at GBRC.

    If it was concrete or green painted ash felt it would be deemed out of bounds straight away.

    Having read this back through, I hope it doesn't come across as I'm having a dig, I'm not, just pointing out what GBRC considers as good racing etiquette.

    Not at all Phill, just seeking clarification as there was contradictory information in the thread.

    Yes there was Graham, and right you bring it up. That picture at Le-mans Mulsanne corner shows a blatant misuse of the regs, that's not a mistake or showing someone taking it to the limit but still trying to stay within the bounds.

    Keep two wheels on the line or inside the line yes, but beyond this your taking the mick.

    So it's a very bad representation.

    I can't see anything either. Just blue boxes with a question mark inside. Or have we been infiltrated by The Riddler? :eek::D

    I'm doing the 'copy image url' thing, when I'm logged into dropbox it shows the images.

    I'll try to copy and paste the images directly.

    From my vantage point.

    -Nuts and I were driving the Works cars while everyone else went privateer base model cars (privateers...pssh!)
    - Fido after resetting the room forgot to set the time back so it was a day only race.
    - I got pole
    - Fido pitted off sequence to try to undercut me at the end. Nuts ran a 2 stop strategy instead of 3 (me)
    - Carlos accidentally put petrol and not diesel so retired from the race
    - There was only one spectator on the grandstand seats (VagueGT)
    - I won
    - I'm growing a mustache for Movember
    - Edit: Silver found some silver then spun!

    The End ;)

    From pistoneds, Derek Bell topping 220/230mph in the early 80's in a Porsche 956, talk about track sanitation nowadays.

    Final Championship Stats ;
    https://docs.google.com/spreadsheet...TFJXSTc5ZmQ1b2UyOENPY3c&usp=drive_web#gid=141

    Congratulations to Racing Roman who ties on 75 points with Numbnuts, but due to having 2 wins, wins the series.

    Well done to Numbnuts on his comeback for 2nd place

    Clay, used to being on the top step this season, has to settle for 3rd place overall.

    PLEASE NOTE = Racing Romans fastest lap is void due to exceeding track limits, therefore Roman loses the 3pts for fastest lap. Numbnuts was second fastest so is now awarded fastest lap & 3pts.
