Further apologies but I am struggling more than usual with this rule book.

Page 9, Overtaking, Corner Sections, the rules state,

'If the section where the opponent car is intercepted is a corner section, then the driver must stop and any movement left is lost. He will be able to declare a contest at the beginning of the following turn.'

That seems clear, however on page 11 in Example Fig 1, the red car enters a corner with 3 points (remaining from 5) but does not stop and lose his points pending a contest the following turn but uses them to overtake and lap the blue car. Surely this overtake of the blue is not permitted by the rule above?

Hi,
on page 11 fig. 1 he used lapping rules.

Pag. 10 Lapping Procedure.
"If the car to lap is on a straight, overtaking follows the standard rule: the overtaking car must spend 1 movement point and eventually continue with his movement. If the car to lap is in a braking section, this is considered a straight for the purpose of lapping, therefore also here it is enough to spend 1 movement point. If the car to lap is in a corner and there are enough movement points left, it may be overtaken immediately by spending 2 movement points (cars to lap do not block in a corner). Alternatively, the driver has to finish his movement for this turn."

Bye
Joe
