The sound of thunder echoes through the hills near the backstretch...

Swaine drops the hammer to 180, thrilling the fans along the backstretch. Burnett, at 160, tucks in behind the #25.

Snouffer and Haskell drop 2 wear each, taking turns at 120 through Samson. They both pass the #6 as the track narrows.

Scarpino, Bauska, and Hoyt each plot 100, scraping off a tire in the Samson 80's. Scarpino gets the bonus by virtue of being on the tail of the #94.

*I forgot to note the dice roll & skill usage on the chart. I will correct next turn.

I have all the plots so I'm pushing ahead to get one more turn in before I head to the WBC's on Sunday. All deadlines throughout the next week will be 'soft' only. Finding time to adjudicate turns will be challenging.

Also a good time to give Bruce Rae his due as the current CFR WBC winner. Many of us Redscape racers will be trying to dethrone the champ!

On to the race and this time, the thunder can heard throughout Normandy!

Turn 11 Summary

Rae finishes out Gresil at 160.

Swaine, at 140, runs to the outer rail in Gresil for free. Also at 140, Munies clips a tire on the inner lane. Burnett plays it conservative at 120 but keeps up with the pair in front via the bonus.

The "Rocketman" Haskell lives up to his billing by pushing both Acc & Top with 2sp each (modified 6 & 9 respectively). His 200 stuns the French onlookers! Snouffer drops back a bit at 160.

Scarpino gets the initiative at 160 and with the double bonus, passes the #94 to slot in behind the M&M's speedster. Harrington uses all his engine to get up to 140.

Bauska pushes Acc with 2s to run 180, tucking in behind the #6. An elated Hoyt uses his top speed of 180 and the double slip to knock the Texaco #28 into last place.

Turn 12 Deadline: Saturday, July 22nd @ 6 p.m. EDT (10 p.m. GMT)

The best move of the race, to this point! Terrific racing so far, fellas...

Turn 12 Summary

Rae pulls up to La Sciene at 160.

Munies finishes out Gresil at 140, as does Swaine who grabs the tailpipe on the #29.

Burnett runs the outer rail in Gresil for free at 140. Haskell continues with his speedy ways, dropping 2 wear in the 140's at 180. That extra lane comes in handy!

Scarpino follows the #38 into Gresil at 180 for 2 wear. He uses the double slip to attempt a forced pass on the #19 with his last 2 sp (modified 5). He squeezes through for a gain of two positions. This one goes into the highlight reel!

Snouffer conserves wear at 140 in the outer lane while taking advantage of the double bonus. Harrington runs into Gresil on the outer rail, scraping off a tire for the privilege.

Hoyt moves up another spot at 160, He clips 2 tires in the Gresil 120's. Bauska, at 140, burns a wear in the 120's and hops onto the bumper of the #14 with the slip.

Turn 13 Soft Deadline: Monday, July 24th @ 6 p.m. EDT (10 p.m. GMT)
I will adjudicate when I can over the coming week. WBC's, here we come!

WBC's are in the books and sanity shall return to my life... almost (I've got 5 days at the beach coming up but that will not eat up every second of my day like the WBC's). Expect somewhat regular turns for the next several weeks followed by a very regular schedule with extra turns sprinkled in as we play catch-up to the other circuits.

Also... race 2 will see a full, 12-car field. A few drivers at WBC expressed a desire to race and as the bottom circuit, this is where they enter.

Back to racing!

Turn 13 Summary

Rae saves his wear at 100 through the La Scierie 100's.

Munies pulls up to the corner on the inside at 160. Scarpino gets the initiative at 180 and slides in next to the #29. Swaine makes it 3-wide going into La Scierie at 160 plus the bonus.

Haskell goes first at 180 and tucks in behind the pink Chevy. Burnett keeps the pace at 160 and the slip (no place to use the double).

Snouffer must stay at 140 to finish Gresil, although he wanted to go 160 :tsk:. Hoyt runs out of the corner at 160 and pulls alongside the #94.

Harrington drops in behind the McDonald's Ford at 160. Bauska drops to 120 (?) and loses contact with the pack.

Turn 14 Deadline: Wednesday, August 2nd @ 5 p.m. EDT (9 p.m. GMT) with a potential early adjudication if all plots are in.

Very little happening this turn but at least there was a dice roll.

Turn 14 Summary

Rae plods along at 100 to clear Paradis.

The primary chase pack (Munies, Scarpino, Swaine, Haskell, & Burnett) all run La Scierie at 120 for free and stay in formation. Haskell did plot 140 but after seeing the rolling roadblock in front of him, used a skill point to brake before the corner (modified 9). A little smoke ensues but the brakes are intact.

Hoyt gets initiative at 140 and clips a tire in the La Scierie 120's. Snouffer pulls in behind the blue #14 at 120 for free.

Harrington scrapes off a wear on the outer rail at 140. Bauska pulls up to La Scierie at 160.

Turn 15 Deadline: Friday, August 4th @ 5 p.m. EDT (9 p.m. GMT)
If all plots are in by tomorrow, an early adjudication is possible.

Scarpino gets the initiative at 140 and burns a tire in Paradis. Swaine is next at 120, running the middle lane for free. Munies, at 100, opts for the inner rail.
