    Question Race Line Penalties / Track Limit

    Hello guys !

    What do you think of the new restrictions about the race line ?
    And races that end up with penalties for everyone ?


    Precision: it is on Patch 1.3.0.0 available on PC!

    Waiting for reactions from PS4 players and XBOX players, on Patch 3.0.
    It's the same as on PC?

    I think the whole race director is broken from the ground up.

    Two tires off the track, bam slowdown, and I lose two seconds. Some people may say that is fair, but it doesn't consider why you cut the track eg, being pushed wide, missing the corner, crashed into etc. Its implemented so that we do not gain any advantage by running wide, but for the majority of cases, running wide and going off track results in loosing time.

    Personally it makes the game less fun and more frustrating, to the extent that I kinda don't want to play it.

    The changes are good, but the time is too high on some places to slow down (cutting Eau Rouge and slow down in Les Combes is enough to avoid penalty)

    No, the rule is simple: hold min 50% of the car between the white lines.

    And, these rules are only required because some drivers use every millimeter to exploit the racing line

    I can understand if such harsh track limits are enforced during qualifying and in time trials. But during the race, it is so very common to occasionally go a little wide here and there. Still, I could understand it if what would be required then is a small lift of the gas and quickly (so you can't just wait till the next corner, 10 seconds later) to not get a penalty, but as it is now, you need to practically stop the car and have 10 cars passing you, just for going wide in a corner that has possibly even lost you time doing that already.

    Yes, the problem with people completely cutting the track (Monaco is a great example,what people were doing there was a disgrace) needs to be addressed, but not by overreacting so much IMO. This has ruined also mine anticipation for the races at nights after work, so I'm back to mostly TT now.

    In real life two wheel needed in the track and thats it.

    You can't attack some curbs in the game because this 50% thing lol..

    Just two pictures for test (it's the same session and the same turn)

    It isn't 50% out of the track here (Track : 24h Le Mans ; Curve before the Mulsanne turn)

    As far as I know, there are some tracks that let you go way more then half car off track without penalty, at least in online time trials. I'm thinking specifically about Red Bull Ring... I think before and after the last corner you can go more then halfway off , and not get your lap disqualified , I think maybe after the first turn this is true to. I wish there was a turn by turn description of what's allowable and what's not for this track... ( and others )

    Tested the Karts yesterday. On Glencairn ALL AI had 100% of their Karts off Track at the red circle in the attached screenshot!

    This cutting rule with 50% of the car width off the track is nonsense.
    Drove the Porsche 962C at Algarve yesterday, got wide after T1. Lost about 2/10 of my fastest laptime because of this. And got the "Slow down .... " message.
    Even if someone get pushed from the track this nasty message appears and the race "director" hands out a 2 seconds penalty.
    Long way to go the young padawans at SMS have.
