The planes land at the Watkins Glen track with all the drivers, and they all rush to the waiting track to get this race started.

John takes his big engine to 120 (Mod 2) and cuts to the inside for 1 wear. Doug bolts (Naked roll) to 120 as well and sits behind John. Fabio winds up to 80 (Mod 3) to sit behind Doug. Marshall goes 100 and takes the outside of Fabio.

Tim B takes his motor to 80 (Mod 3) to the inside and Chris L punches it to 100 to come alongside and Dave B takes position behind Tim B by going 60.

Giovanni and Jim O practice caution and follow behind at 60. Mike P is pushed to lane 2 by going 60, Rando is pushed to lane 3 by accelerating to 80 and there is no room at the inn for Turkyo, so it is a good thing he did not push his engine on the start speed.

Turn 2 is due at 4PM Pacific 3MAR
(I will be putting last location markers on the map tomorrow)

Turn 2

John takes the tunnel at 160, spending two wear for the trouble and he is lined up to fly down the backstretch.

Doug, Fabio and Marshall travel as a pack through the S2 and Fabio benefits from the slip to move alongside Doug.

Tim Makes the early move spending 3 wear (2 wear through S1 and 1 wear for S2) while rolling to make the over acceleration to 140 (-2 Modifier) with a roll of 3. Chris takes it easy with Dave following behind at 120. Giovanni takes the inside with 100 but got the slip to take the 100 space in the inside of S2.

Turkyo rolls at 120 with a slip to take the inside, as Jim and Rando take the outside lanes at 120. Mike lags behind at 100 but lines up behind the 3-wide.

Orders are due 6MAR17 at 4PM Pacific. I will adjudicate early if I have all orders.

Turn 3

We have a breakaway, a chase pack and the peleton. John tames his engine and takes the Tunnel at 120 for free.

The chase pack is led by Doug who goes 140 for 1W in the Tunnel and is eyeballing John further down the track. Fabio takes the Tunnel at 120 along with Marshall who got the slip. The exit lanes are blocked for Tim going 140, but he sits behind Marshall for a possible slip next turn.

Chris goes 120 and so does Giovanni. Dave Goes 120, takes the slip from Chris to pull alongside the lime green car. Turkyo goes 120 and takes the inside of S1 at the cost of 1W. Jim and Rando take the outside of S1. Mike follows behind at 120 to sit at the back of the pack.

Turn 4 due Wednesday at 4PM Pacific 8MAR17

TURN 4

Great turnaround, All! Turn 5 due 4PM Pacific 8MAR17

John continues his pace down the backstretch at 160. He is followed by the gang of 4 (Doug, Fabio, Marshall and Tim) all going at 160 also. Fabio and Tim got a slip.

Chris flies around the tunnel at 140 through the 100s, Giovanni makes a move and takes 7th with a slip and spending a wear in the Tunnel. Dave meanders through Tunnel at a leisurely 120 for no wear. Turkyo takes the 100s for a no cost turn but the slip from Giovanni keeps him pace.

Jim does not get a slip, but orders the 120s and is primed to race into the backstretch. Rando goes 120 through the 100s for a wear and moves up behind Turkyo. Mike takes the 100s as well, (as Jim is sitting on the end of the 120s!) for a wear and the slip, passing Jim and sitting next to Rando.

(The wear was taken from Mike on the chart, but not shown on the text box)

John rolls around the curve at 160 for 2W, and Dave follows for the same 2W. Fabio cuts to the inside going 140 and taking the slip, Marshall goes 120 and slips also. Tim takes the curve and sits behind Doug.

Turn 6

Turn 7 is due Saturday at 4PM Pacific 11MAR17 (earlier if I have all orders)

John continues his torrid pace in the lead at 160, followed by Dave (160), Fabio (140), Tim (140), and Marshall (120)

Chris comes out of the Carousel going 140 on the inside lane pulling 2 wear off of the tires. Giovanni spends 1 wear and takes the safer outside lane. Turkyo gets the slip, and spends two wear to take the bumper of Chris' lime green machine.

Dave spends 1 wear on the outside lane and bunches behind Giovanni. Rando takes his slip, along with the 2 wear spent on the inside lane. Mike does the same move as Rando holding his spoiler the entire way.

Jim takes the outside lane at 140 for 1wear but begins to lose contact.

Turn 7

Turn 8 is due 13MAR17 at 4PM Pacific (earlier if all orders in)

Every rolls down the backstretch, and John takes the extra wear to enter the kink. Doug goes to 160, Fabio follows with the slip at 140, and Tim does the same. Marshal comes to the outside of Tim by going 160.

Chris accelerates to 160 and gains some separation. Giovanni and the rest of the pack comes out of the curve as the speed that they entered.

Turn 8

Sorry for the delay, I had questions that I did not know the answers to.
Turn 9 due Friday, 17MAR17 @4PM Pacific (Unless the NCAA is too exciting to get to this!)

John jumps to the inside lane on the R/L going 100 (1W) and keeps his lead. Doug races to the outside at 120 (2W). Fabio and Tim jump on the R/L and Marshall is pushed to the outside as they all go 120.

The next pack is bumper to bumper!

Chris takes the inside of the Kink at 120 and sees Turkyo fly down the backstretch at 160(2W) to the outside of Chris. Giovanni, Dave. Mike and Rando all follow at 140. Jim revs the engine up to 180 and makes contact.

The confusion happened when Turkyo input orders that did not specify wear. I did not want to force him into a crash situation, so I asked the Race Stewards for a ruling. Thank you for your patience.

Turn 10

First off I need to apologize to Fabio. I miss-filed his email into the archives and could not find it.

John flies through the corner on the line at 100 for one wear, while followed by Doug who went 120 for 2 wear and Fabio at 100 for 1 wear.

Tim took the outside option for 100, and Marshall took the R/L for 100 and clipped some tire off for 1 wear.

Turkyo and Chris take the Little bend at 120, conserving the tires for the next lap.

Dave ordered the R/L but was not on it to begin with, and it cost him 2W by going 100. Giovanni is passed by Dave as they switch lanes, but he takes the R/L. Rando flies around the Big Bend for 2W, looking for a forced pass, makes his move with a 3 modifier rolling a 7, passing successfully.

Mike takes the Big bend easy at 80, trying to goad Jim to take the line at high speed, Jim calmly motors his car into the turn at 60 sitting behind the devious Mike.

Turn 11 due Friday at 4PM Pacific

Correction!

Rando could not get a slip, because Giovanni did not go 120.
