OK, poll closed. Way switching is not allowed on this track. Deleting involved replays and notifying pipsqueaks.

Big like.

Again...   :-\

(I'm happy to see that I'm not the only one falling always in the same mistake with dual-way track design)

I voted yes, this race would be very boring with the two tile trick.

I am unsure however on how the restriction would work, whether it would disallow "reversing along the track after a junction", or any dual-way switch on the track.

The best solution is to avoid dual-way parts in the first third of the tracks.
