Width of strip between autonomous line tape

Michael Wraight (Event Partner)

I've looked high and low, and can't seem to find any guidance on the exact dimension or range of dimensions for the strip between the two white tape autonomous line strips.

What should the spacing be for the autonomous line tape strips?

Answered by committee

Thank you for your question. Page A-16 of the Spin up Game Manual shows the relative locations of objects on the field, including the Autonomous Lines. The space between the lines is intended to be approximately 2", but as indicated by rule <T25> that distance may vary from nominal by ±1.0”. This measurement will be added to Appendix A in the next game manual update.
