Rules 6.6

In the example car 33 is linked to #22 e #85.

Why can move laterally ?

The rule say

The active car in Pursuit Movement can move laterally freely until
it moves forward and Links with another car directly in front of
it. Once an active car in Pursuit Movement becomes Linked it
cannot change lanes during the remainder of its Action Segment.


The car is Linked at the beginning of the move.

The rules is different to Thunder Alley ?

With the exception of lead movement, cars are never linked "at the beginning of a move". They become linked the moment they move forward, so they may move laterally first. This is the same in Thunder Alley.

Pursuit and Line (Draft) movement work exactly the same as Thunder Alley. You can move laterally, but once you move forward the car links and cannot change lanes the rest of the move.

The difference in movement between Grand Prix & Thunder Alley is Solo and Lead movement with the conditional forward link (see 6.3).

I don't think this is stated exactly correctly. I believe a car may move forward and changed lanes as long as it is not linked to other cars. The rule states that Pursuit and Line movement are exactly like solo movement until they move forward and are linked. So, for example, a car could move sideways out of line, move forward x number of spaces, duck back into the line (possibly by displacing a car), and move forward finally establishing a link. At that point, it may no longer change lanes.
