PSA: Could the owner of a scarlet 'A', apparently discharged near the Izmir corner, please claim it at your next pit stop.

The #24 Dupont car (Steve's) will be charged a wear for the additional braking. I'll make the correction to the chart in T20.

Fabio, you own this race. Well done. I would happily lay 30-to-1 odds on you if you were a horse. And we all know that you are a lot smarter than a horse. :winkgrin:

So Rando - I know you've got some predictions for this race. I'll give you mine:

1st: Fabio (Call me Mr. Obvious.)
2nd: Tim B. (Same car as Fabio w/ less wear.)
3rd: Mike (That's right - I'll be on that podium.)
4th: Cody (Top speed hurts. Can be caught.)
5th: Rando (Tons of wear with a solid car. I think he gets through the traffic.)
6th - 12th: I have no frickin' clue.

Current thoughts on track. This one is plain weird. In my short experience, I've never seen the cars get spread out like this. There are obviously some key corners that allow a car to jump ahead if hit just right. Fabio found them and Tim seems to have done so as well this past half lap. I'll be happy with a top half finish in this first race.

Hint: Conditional orders are often a good idea...

Turn 22 Summary
Fabio continues at his top speed of 160. At 160, Tim B. gets the initiative over Cody and grabs 2nd place. Cody tucks in behind the Air Force car at his top speed of 140. Mike finishes Gaziantep at 160 with the increasing corner speed. Todd takes the Gaziantep line for free at 120. Tim C. also takes the line at 120 for free. Brad gets the slip at 120 but to use it must come off the line for a wear. He pulls to the outside of the #24 car, clearing Gaziantep. At 140, John gets the initiative and takes the Adana line for free while setting up the Gaziantep line. At 120, Kal uses the Adana 120 for free and grabs the tail of the #28 car on the line. Rando runs the Adana curve on the line for free at 140 then moves to the inside of the #3 car, off the line. At 140, Will takes the line for free then discovers a blocked track. He brakes down to 120 for a wear. Chris uses the Bursa line for a wear at 140 followed by Adana for free.
