Thanks for that. That's clearly not blocking at all. The car behind has a good car length of two, and in a touring car that's no where near close enough to make the pass.

Can see when he gets to the main straight he stops trying to break the tow because the Honda is much closer, and at that point it would be blocking. Some clever driving sticking to the right all the way down the main straight to keep the inside blocked off. By doing that he was able to make his one move back to the left of the circuit. That was pretty clever driving from Comini.

Not so much from that VW. Tried to go around the outside into the chicane and just aborted over the grass. That was a bit poor.

Do you have a link to a video of it?
Matt linked it earlier.

Trolling? Because you don't like it? I don't remember this kind of racingfrom old WTCC races, but if you are, pls. give a link to a video.

This is the 2012 race, no such thing from the leading car I noticed.

Fairly certain touring car driving standards haven't changed in over 30 years.

Weaving to break a tow is allowed in every series without repercussions. It's when you weave to block, or reacting to a move from a car behind you, that isn't.
