Lots of dice, lots of high speed!

Turn 24 Summary
Fabio drops a wear in Konya on the line and a 2nd wear in the Antalya 80's at 100. Dropping to 100, Tim B. uses 1sp on the brake table (modified 2) and burns a wear on the Konya line. Cody hits the Konya line at 100 but instead of wear he opts for the chance table w/ 1sp (modified 2). Whew! Mike pulls up to the Konya line at 140. Todd slows to 140. At 160, Brad catches the #84 car's tail. Tim C. stays on the #50 bumper at 140 plus the slip. John pushes his engine at 200 with 2sp (modified 8). Kal runs the straight at 160. Rando pushes his top with 1sp (modified 6) at 180, catching the #28 with the double slip. Will pulls alongside the #3 at 180. Chris comes out of Gaziantep at 160.

Turn 25 Deadline: Wednesday, July 15th @ 9 a.m. EDT (1 p.m. GMT)
This will most likely be a late adjudication (up to 24 hours) but theres a chance it will be on time.

This turn coming up made me think of Brad's comment from the Bus Stop corner in Spa:

OK, All you knuckleheads that just jammed 5 lbs of crap in a 2 lb sack can bite me...

I've been mis-placing the cars on the chart the past few turns. I've been trying to keep them ordered by current place but with little time to adjudicate, $*^% happens. Not worth correcting now but I'll try to do better next time.

Cody, get that POS out of my way.
When are you gonna use all that wear, Rando?

I'm saving the wear for next race since it's not helping enough this race. What's the next track, anyway?

I'm indifferent between the two. I'll put up a poll.

You can pry 3rd place from my cold dead hands Mike!

Let's just cut out that long back stretch off the 3rd lap. I'm sure everyone's excited to finish up this race and move on to the 2nd race of the season.

Well, John, look at the big mess you've created. Another lesson in the value of conditional orders.

Turn 28 Summary
Fabio drops 2 wear on the Ankara line at 100. Tim B. plods along at 120 and foregoes the upcoming RL to keep an inside position. Mike pulls alongside the #21 car at 140. At 120, Cody tucks in behind the blue Air Force car. John plots 140 to get the initiative then brakes down to 120 on the charts (naked 8) before the corner. He takes the Istanbul 100's for a wear. Tim C. follows at 140, taking the 100's for 2 wear. He gets stuck behind John and has to emergency brake down to 100 for 2 more wear. At 120, Todd hits the Istanbul 100's but opts to conserve wear on the chance table with 2sp (modified 8) and spins! Will pulls up to Istanbul in the middle lane at 160. Brad races to the outside of the #6 car, also at 160 and the slip. At 140 and the slip, Rando falls a little behind. Kal hits the straight at 140. Chris pulls alongside the #3 at 160.

Turn 29 Deadline: Saturday, July 25th @ 9 a.m. EDT (1 p.m. GMT)

It's possible that T29 will not get done until next Tuesday night. We're off camping in our pop-up and I'm unsure if I'll have the time or decent WIFI (it's a resort CG but you never know) to adjudicate. Either way, a Friday deadline is not possible. Maybe C2 can catch up some!
