And the green flag flies, so does Miller!

Turn 1 summary:
Mossman is the first of seven to push his start speed (modified 1) and gets an early gap on Tatum, who also pushed his start speed (modified 0). Incorpora pushes (modified 0) to stay on Tatum's wing. Kennington stays with his car's 60 start and pulls in behind the black machine.

Hancock and Bauska both do 60 with no push and stay side-by-side. Linneberg uses no dice and does 60 to stay behind Hancock. Needham pushes to 40 (modified 2) and stays with the pack.

Blizzard coaxes a modified 7 out of the dice and moves up one spot. Miller pushes to 120 (modified 0) and picks up five positions on the jump. Welage is the last to push (modified 4) and ducks inside. Ling spares the dice and takes up a position right behind Welage at 20.

More than half of the field take slips and the first corner bunches up the pack.

Turn 2 summary:
Mossman leaves one wear on the 100s at 120 to clear the corner. Tatum sheds two wear in the same lane to close up on the leader. Incorpora does 120 shedding one wear and using a slip to keep the line intact. Miller plots 160 and uses the long way around the bend to his advantage, grabbing a solid 4th place.

Kennington gets a slip from Tatum and finishes beside the orange machine. Bauska tests his car's acceleration (modified 2) and reaches 140 to move before Hancock and, with a slip from Miller, makes it 3 wide. Hancock uses a slip from Kennington to keep up with the pack. Blizzard goes 140 and gets a slip from Bauska, catching the silver car.

Linneberg plots 120 and uses a slip from Hancock keep on the tail of the pack. Rando does 100 and also gets a slip from Linneberg but loses the draft for now. Welage punches up to 100 and holds the inside. Ling tests his acceleration (modified 7) to reach 100 and stay on Welage's wing.

Everyone gets down to two wide safely and Rando catches the chase pack.

Turn 3 summary:
Mossman holds a slight lead dropping 1 wear in the 100s. Tatum gets his nose on Mossman's outside by shedding one wear in the 120s. Incorpora loses a step on the leaders at 120. Miller pulls even with the black car scrubbing off two wear in the 120s.

Kennington leaves one wear in the 120s at 140 and keeps behind Incorpora. Bauska saves his tires at 120 and grabs the wing of the blue machine. Hancock does 100 and with a slip from Miller pulls alongside Bauska. Blizzard also saves rubber at 100 but has no room for a slip.

Linneberg keeps at 120 safely and gets a slip from Hancock to stay on his wing. Rando nicks two wear off his tires at 160 and grabs the tail of the pack. Welage plots 160 and takes the long way around the kink to finish at the corner. Ling also does 160 but takes the short way around to make a run on Welage.

A three car break at the front as Miller joins the leaders. You could throw a blanket over the next 7 cars.

Turn 4 summary:
Mossman and Tatum both finish their respective corner lanes for already paid wear and finish side by side. Miller flies the 100s at 140 dropping two wear and catching the leaders. Incorpora takes the safe route through the 120s at speed.

Kennington also takes the 120s safely and with a slip from Incorpora pulls up next to him. Bauska takes the initiative from Hancock with a 140 plot, scrubbing off one wear in the 120s. Hancock follows Bauska through the 120s at a safe speed. Blizzard uses his inside advantage to move before Linneberg, sheds 1 wear in the 100s at 120 and, with a slip from Bauska, is able to move into P7 on the outside.

Linneberg does 120 and slides inside of Hancock to take over P8 at a cost of one wear. Rando stays with the pack at 120 through the 120s and a slip from Blizzard. Welage and Ling both do 120 through the 120s to stay wheel to wheel.

Tatum makes a bold move into the lead, the chase pack tightens up even more.

Turn 5 summary:
Tatum plots 140, uses two wear and two skill (modified 3) to late brake to 80 and drops two more wear on the inside to pick up P1. Mossman wanted to make a similar move though not quite as aggressive, but with Tatum now on the inside has to swing wide shedding two wear in the 60s. Miller also was hunting the inside lane but, like Mossman, had to go outside, dropping two wear. Incorpora uses the inside advantage to reach the entrance of the corner at 100.

Kennington, also at 100, keeps pace with Incorpora. Bauska gets the jump on Blizzard with a 120 plot and makes the corner entrance three wide. Blizzard does a conservative 100 and starts the two deep pack. Linneberg at 120 pulls even with the purple machine.

Hancock plots 100 and, with a slip from Bauska, completes the second row. Rando is locked at 120 and keeps with the pack. (Only two spaces separate P10 from P4) Welage does 120 and opts to keep to the outside for free. Ling also does 120 and, with the outside occupied, drops to the 100s, knocking off one wear. He finishes outside to prevent a slip opportunity by Welage next turn.

Tatum gaps Mossman, the hairpin collects more rubber.

Turn 6 summary:
Tatum accelerates to 140 off the corner making that last move pay dividends. Mossman and Miller both maintain 100 for already paid wear; Mossman taking the inside and Miller choosing to finish behind him. Bauska sheds two wear in the 60s at 100 and starts for the inside.

Incorpora drops two wear on the inner 40s at 80 and holds on to P4. Kennington wanted the inside lane but with things blocked he uses the middle 40s, scrubbing off two wear. (Rules note: Either Bauska OR Kennington may slip Incorpora, but not both. The first one to request it and move gets it.) Blizzard knocks two wear off in the middle 40s at 80. Linneberg slows to 60 (one wear for deceleration) and dives inside for one more wear and up to P7.

Hancock slows to 60 and takes the outside line for free. Rando's choices become very limited as he plots 80 and hits the middle 40 lane at a cost of two wear. Ling does 120 to reach the entrance of the corner on the inside. Welage plots 140 and pulls alongside Ling at the corner.

Eight position changes as the field splits into two packs.

Turn 7 summary:
Tatum rounds the corner at 100 dropping one wear. Mossman sheds two wear in the inner 80s at 120. Miller gets a slip from Mossman but with Mossman on the inside is forced outside knocking off two wear. Incorpora covers the straightaway at 120.

Bauska jumps out to 160 getting the initiative on Kennington and passing Incorpora to pick up two spots to 4th place. Kennington plots 140 and pulls even with the black machine. Blizzard's 140 plot sends him out of the corner before Linneberg. He grabs Incorpora's wing on the inside. Linneberg does 120 and with a slip from Kennington he brings up the rear of the lead pack.

Rando continues at 80 for already paid wear and dives inside out of the corner. Hancock continues the corner at 60 and slides towards the inside making it as far as the middle lane. Ling uses his inside advantage to fly around the inside 40s at 80, scrubbing off two wear. Welage has the same plot as Ling but not enough room to complete the move so he takes the middle 40s through the corner, spending two wear and picking up P11.

No positions change but things tighten up.

Turn 8 summary:
Tatum sheds two wear in the inner 80s at 120. Mossman completes the first inner 80s for already paid wear then drops two more wear in the second inner 80s. Miller finishes the outer 80s for already paid wear and dives inside. Bauska sheds one wear in the inner 80s at 100 and grabs the wing of Miller's orange car.

Incorpora, Kennington, Blizzard and Linneberg submit identical plots. All look for a slip but no one involved did more than 100 so none get one. They all spend 1w in the inner 80s at 100 and keep the foursome intact.

Rando and Ling both reach the entrance to the corner while Welage and Hancock take up behind them; the Americans nose to tail on the inside with the Brits nose to tail on the outside.
