    That is not cheating if the rules allow it. Just because F1 uses "two wheels inside white line" doesn't mean it's the only correct rule, and even F1 found it to be stupid so they decided to not follow it anywhere. For example some leagues like FSR allow curbs as part of track since forever as in those screenshots.

    I only get as far as attempting direct connect and no further. Might be that I'm in Australia and therefore upside down? :D Can't hold my tongue in the right position :p
    I'll try again later.

    Another +1 for a Fixed Setup Comp in the future.

    I'm seeing these two comps as test beds for Studio397, things will improve.

    This isn't cricket ;)

    Sorry to disagree but both pictures are clear track cutting. The second one is especially flagrant.

    I have to agree that F1 rules are stupid since they seem not to comply any rule. Charlie Whiting will be out this year. That should be relieving at least.

    However, that's no excuse for the poor attention being given to track limits for official tracks.

    You are right, although I personally can not agree. For me it is more important what the rule means than the rule itself. What I see in those screens is a clear attempt to cut the track as much as possible. Is it legal? Maybe @Christopher Elliott can clarify. For me it should not be because this will become a hotlap competition to a competition of who is able to cut more.

    From FIA Appendix L, chapter IV:

    "c) Drivers must use the track at all times. For the avoidance of
    doubt, the white lines defining the track edges are considered
    to be part of the track but the kerbs are not.

    Should a car leave the track for any reason, and without
    prejudice to 2(d) below, the driver may rejoin. However, this
    may only be done when it is safe to do so and without gaining
    any advantage.
    A driver will be judged to have left the track if
    no part of the car remains in contact with the track.

    d) Repetition of serious mistakes or the appearance of a lack of
    control over the car (such as leaving the track) will be reported
    to the Stewards and may entail the imposition of penalties up to
    and including the exclusion of any driver concerned.

    e) It is not permitted to drive any car unnecessarily slowly,
    erratically or in a manner deemed potentially dangerous to
    other drivers at any time."

    Real life rule is simple, if you have all four wheels outside of the white line in qualifying (Hotlap Competition) and make your personal fastest lap it is DQ. ;)

    in the old days, we had to submit a replay to verify the lap. If four wheels left the racing surface, the lap was invalid. This, of course, was for a mere couple of dozen drivers in a league. I can't imagine anyone having the time to police every freakin' lap.
