Default One Lap Down

I was wondering how different tracks handle lap traffic during a race and not qualifying. When a car is going one lap down to the leader, should the car going one lap down be passed or should they just pull over?

I know when I first started racing years ago the policy was to hold your line and the leader would pass you during the race.

I always try to give the leader alittle extra room to pass. Hopefully at a good spot so neither one of us lose any time.

Courtesy goes a long way

Most of the time if the slower car will hold there path, the faster car will go by.
