Awesome curbing on outside of Baku T8.
A transponder on car could alert race officials to possible unfair advantage due to off track driving or more than two wheels off.
With a manufactured circuit, unlike a street circuit, abusive curbing on the outside suggests, (1), less than the best design, (2), a punitive official response, even when its designed in from the start.
A curb with sufficient cushion would provide an incentive to stay on track.
What does a GPLer like about curbing?
That we can use it.
Lime Rock T1 could use some?
Had not thought about curbing before, it was really incidental to any interest. On the inside it makes some sense, as if protecting a pylon.
Abusive curbing on the outside designed to punish drivers by damaging their cars , (or being potentially damaging), seems alittle out of step with the spirit of good sportsmanship and fair play.
