When you get back on throttle, be gentle and don't go 0-100% in one shot, this will open your line too fast in theses weird camber curves and get you a pen. Penalty kill lap time like nothing else. Better be conservative and lose 0.2 sec in every corner than getting a penalty that cost 2.5 sec a lap for a 0.5 sec offense.Well I seem to be having trouble on the Red Bull Ring C race, played my first race. I finished last, 5th. See there were 5 racers including me. I did get a penalty 3-4 times, it's hard trying not to go off the edge of the track. I'm trying to get a low lap time but when I drive too fast while turning the car goes off-track, i'll have to post some replays and let you guys look at them to show you better what I mean.
That's true, if you're not on full throttle while being off track there is a good chance you don't get penalize. I could escape some but some others not.I struggle with penalties at this track, too.
One thing I did not realize until very, very recently is this...if I lift in the penalty zone, I don't get penalized. A quick (un)blip of the throttle is all it takes. You just have to make sure you are COMPLETELY off the gas, even if only for a millisecond, before you mash the go button again (controller).
I signed up for a Race A at Fuji yesterday and what happened there was horrible. Pure carnage. 6 in the room and only 2 of us tried to have a clean race.
I manage the dirty driver quite well. Worth watching!
