Turn 21

Turn 22 May be delayed for a week as I am traveling to Denver to catch up with my wife and children who have been vacationing in the American Southwest. I will be back and able to adjudicate 1MAY17.

If Mike can find an RM I am fine with standing by, otherwise I will see you in a week!

Turn 21
Tim rolls through S1 at 120 spending 1W, Fabio takes position to enter S1 flying up at 140, and Doug does the same.

Marshall takes initiative at 120 and corners the 80 lane for a 2W clip, John spends 1W and takes the R/L sitting in the middle lane. Giovanni makes a move at 120 (2W) and a slip to get 3-wide on the straightaway. Chris takes the R/L at 100 (1W) and preps for a slip next turn.

Mike keeps pressing to make contact again at 120 spending 2W and sitting at the middle lane at the end of the 90. Dave takes it a little easier at 100 on the R/L and getting a slip for the cost of 1W.

Jim spends 1W along the R/L and has clean air.

I went back through the entire race to reconcile the wear and skill counts. These are the updated numbers. Please check through your own race if you believe I've miscounted.

Series championship update: If Doug wins the race, he's in line for the crown but... if Fabio then takes 2nd, he'll nudge Doug out of the winner's circle by a single point. This will be a close one...

Tim runs down the straight at 160. Doug, also at 160, is able to pull even with the green car with the bonus. Fabio keeps up with the leaders at 160 and the slip. He opts to tail the blue car.

Marshall drops the hammer to 180, refusing to let this race go uncontested.

Giovanni burns 2 tires in the Tunnel 120's at 160. John saves his last wear at 120 on the outer rail. Chris pulls even with the purple car at 120 outside and the bonus.

Mike gets initiative at 140, dropping 2 tires on the inside rail. Turyko clips a tire at 120 in the 100 before tucking in behind the grey car. Dave stays on Turyko's tailpipe at 100 and the slip.

The Battle Royale begins with Doug having a sizable wear advantage. None the less, series advantage goes to Fabio by one point! Is this a done deal or can one of the back-markers make a move?

Turn 25 Summary

Doug gets the initiative at 160 and burns off 2 more wear out of his bigly stock in the Carousel 120's. Tim, at 140, drops a wear in the 120's and grabs the tailpipe on the blue car.

Fabio runs the Carousel on the inner rail at 140 for 2 wear and with the bonus pulls into 2nd place.

Marshall clips 2 tires at 140 in the Carousel 100's. Giovanni drops the hammer and races down the straight at 180, using 1sp on the nitro test (modified 4).

John also puts his engine to the test at 180 (naked 6), giving fans the thrill of high-speed racing down the backstretch. Chris, at 160, slides in behind the purple rocket.

Mike, at 160 and the double bonus, passes the neon car to pull even with the purple machine. Turyko slams his foot onto the gas pedal to 180 and tucks in behind the bright green car.

Dave hits the accelerator and at 160 plus the double slip pulls even with the black car.

Jim moseys through the Tunnel at 120 on the outer rail for free.

Turn 26 Deadline: Monday, May 1st @ 8 a.m. EDT (12 noon GMT)
