Builds & car selection are in. Chris refused to select a car so I gave him the most hideous one I could find (#00 flame car). In fact, it's so hideous I didn't even offer it to the field. :laugh:

Deadline for start bids: Wednesday, October 7th @ 12 noon EDT (4 p.m. GMT)

I'm working on removing the small white borders on some of the cars. Every time I start a race, I have to relearn Photoshop.

The grid is set and dice come into play for the pole and the back end of the field. Remember that you can push your start speed with a dice roll (& modifiers).

The flag drops and the cars go!

Turn 1 Summary
Will pushes his start speed to 120 with 2 sp on the dice (modified 9). He mis-shifts, leaving him at 80 on the line. Fabio pulls to the inside of the #6 at 100 for the lead. Chris uses his big 3 sp chip to push his start speed to 80 (modified 6). Ron moves ahead at 60. William starts at 40, going to the start table with one of his 3 sp chips (modified 6). Joe brings up the rear at 20.

There may be a delay with the Monday holiday but if I'm able to adjudicate it will be early in the morning.

Cars are speeding up & spending wear...

Turn 2 Summary
Fabio sheds 2 wear in Curva Uno and takes S del ciervo for free on the line. At 120 Will uses the Curva Uno line and the S del ciervo 120's for free. He tucks in behind the #17. Chris drops a wear on the line in Curva Uno and a second in the S del ciervo 120's. Ron takes the Curva Uno line for free at 120.

The green lines designate inside of the track. A layman's job but it works.

Ok, I have to admit, the first half of this track is pretty tame. I expect to see some real action in the 2nd half with the chicane and a few hairpins coming up.

Turn 5 Summary
Fabio continues at 160 on the long straight. Will continues at 160 and tucks in behind the #17. Chris increases speed to 160 and grabs the bumper on the #6. Ron continues his line in Curvon Salotto at 160. Also at 160, William sheds a wear on the Salotto line. Joes enters Salotto on the line at 160 for a wear.

Turn 6 Deadline: Wednesday, October 21st @ 12 noon EDT (4 p.m. GMT)

I will be on my last camping trip of the season Friday through Sunday. There will be no Friday adjudication but I'll set a soft deadline for Thursday at 12 noon EDT for turn 7. If I have all the plots, I'll adjudicate early.

The lead pack is easing through the chicane...

Turn 6 Summary
Fabio drops to 120, costing a wear on his brakes. He takes the Chicana line for another wear. Will also takes the Chicana line for a wear at 120 and stays on the bumper of the #17. At 120, Ron sets up the Ascari chicane on the line. Ron & William continue on the backstretch at 160. Joe finishes Curvon Salotto at 160 as he brings up the rear.

Turn 7 soft deadline: Thursday, October 22nd @ 12 noon EDT (4 p.m. GMT)

If I don't have all the plots by the soft deadline, we revert to the hard deadline on Monday.

For the new guys, you'll notice three timing marks that divide the track into three sectors. Each time the last car finishes a sector I'll post the speed summary below. It should be self explanatory but if you have any questions feel free to ask.

Fabio gets the initiative at 100 and drops 2 wear on the Mixtos line. Will drops to 80, shedding a wear in the Entrada 60's. Chris takes the Entrada line at 80 for a wear but has to jump off the line to avoid the blocking #6 car for a 2nd wear. Ron pulls up to Entrada on the inside at 100.

Best of luck to Joe, who has taken over for a delinquent driver in the Redscape Grand Prix (C2).
