I'm all for track limits, but as they are set up for Portland is simply not right. Yes, it's the same for everyone, but it will penalize you for literally nothing at all. There's grass to punish you for exceeding the track. Many people's race will be destroyed for no reason.

Where does it punish you for nothing at all?

I'm sorry but you can use kerbs with 2 wheels, but you can't put a full car on them.

The kerbs don't change regarding where they give you warnings, practice and learn the limits. If people are continuously exceeding them and getting warnings, you need to look at yourselves and maybe not charge as much into corners. We've taken some measures to aid the situation, but we are not turning them off, there is simply no need. We asked earlier in the week for pictures showing trouble spots and only Raul posted one as we requested and we advised and addressed that. It's no good coming to us Saturday evening expecting massive changes.

I've managed to learn as have others so it is possible.

I've seen a picture posted and it only has two wheels on the kerb?

Two wheels on the kerb is already more than the real drivers used in most of the kerbs around this track back in 1988.

And two wheels is fine everywhere. Two wheels and a bit more of the car is not.

Exit from the right hander leading to the back straight gives you significantly less tolerance. It's one of the places where people will attempt to pass, you'll get shoved off the line and get penalized. The last chicane is also too tight. I'm not expecting any changes, but it simply makes no sense to penalize riding curbs on such track as Portland. There's always grass to punish you, this is no COTA. Also, riding none of the penalized spots (except the first chicane) will actually make you faster. People will get punished for driver errors, not for being faster by "cheating". Enforcing track limits at such track simply makes no sense from my point of view. But I guess I'll just shut up and drive...

The warnings are given out on your speed too, the kerb you mention, I have been right up to the edge and no warning. I only got them if I touched the grass.
The last chicane is fine, just put less than 50% of you're car on it and you'll be okay. You won't be losing out as everyone will be doing it.
The grass in game will never punish you like in real life, we've seen that in this scenario many many times in the past with no effect on the cars.

We admit, it isn't ideal, but we can't change it at this point, again as before we've made changes to assist with the situation but we're not removing them completely as much more could be gained with them off.

Everyone will have to work round it, the track is perfectly okay to race on and many people are just working around it.

Full boost if you want. It's the rev limiter you have to drop to keep the engine safe.

Slowest of all and with badly damaged suspension after contact with Jason (Fitch), it was just undriveable. I am sorry to those drivers which I lead into an unpleasant situation.
