Does "stopping" in a corner after a role that brings you in from the straights count towards the stopping total?Yes you have stopped in the corner if you move like you described. If you look carefuly at most tracks you'll find corners with the shortest route 1. They could be quite hard to go through if you first had to come in with one roll/move from the straight and then next try to make another stop inside the corner.
example: I am in the straightaway (3 lane, middle). I have 3 spaces to go before I hit the red line "door" for the corner. I am in second gear and I roll a 4. I move straight 4 into the corner and my turn is over. The corner has a yellow flag of 1. Now I have "stopped" in the corner. Does that count for my 1 stop in the corner? I can up the gear on my next turn and blow though it? Or do I have to stop one more time while in the corner since that would be my first time starting my turn in the coner? (i.e. I have to roll low to stop in the corner one more time so I don't overblow it?)
