When I said all paved areas are track I never considered a second there was a way to shortcut like this.
This shortcutting has nothing to do with the spirit how we race on Laguna seca.
You can blame me on my words I wote down in the race thread but with common sense you could have known the shortcut was wrong.
I don't accept your race.
In the rules it said "All paved areas are track regardless of lines and tracksigns" (phwoar, this WYSIWYG editor is snazzy!) which I took to mean you'd seen the shortcut, but weren't going to tell us to use it to see who figured it out by themselves. It was consistently a part of the track since GT1, and most people should have at least known it was there.
I wonder how many other people have done the same as me... I somehow doubt I'm the only one, such is the competitive nature of these races where even a tenth can make all the difference.
At least I didn't spend hours perfecting it, eh?
