Barletta does 100 and sets up on the inside ready to take Solana. Pellegrino does 120 to end beside Barletta. Mossman punches to 140 and makes it three wide.

A new leader as the pack strings out

Turn 4 summary:
Harrington covers the straightaway at 160 and grabs the racing line for Del Lago. Ling also hits 160 and with a slip from Harrington moves inside to take over P1. Schulz comes out of Solana at 160 and keeps the leaders close.

Barletta sheds two wear in the Solana 60s at 100 and chooses the middle lane to try to foil a slip attempt. Mossman has the speed advantage to move next and he drops one wear on the racing line. Pellegrino drops inside at 80 and then slides in between the red and yellow cars.

Next deadline: turn 5 due Friday, June 9 at 6pm EDT/10pm UTC

Del Lago does it's usual scramble as the group breaks in two.

Turn 5 summary:
Ling, Harrington and Schulz all plot 100; Ling starts with the 60s then picks up the second line; Harrington takes the first line then switches to the 60s, finishing on the Horquilla line; Schulz takes both lines. All three drivers use two wear.

Barletta covers the straightaway at 140 and grabs the racing line. Pellegrino plots 120 and with a slip is able to stay right on the rear of the yellow machine. Mossman plots 140 looking for a slip but he's faster than Pellegrino so he keeps the line intact, pulling up behind him.

Next deadline: turn 6 due Monday, June 12 at 6pm EDT/10pm UTC

A change of position at the back while the leaders negotiate the Esses.

Turn 7 summary:
Harrington gets the initiative on Ling with a 120 plot and hits the S1 120s for free. Ling plots 100 and takes the racing line. Due to the configuration of the corner he retains the lead in spite of Harrington's faster move. Schulz does 120 into the 120s to keep the pack intact.

Barletta slows to 60 and rounds Horquilla on the outside for free. Pellegrino also does 60 into Horquilla at no cost. Mossman ducks to the inside of the corner at 80 shedding two wear and picking up P5.

Next deadline: turn 8 due Friday, June 16 at 6pm EDT/10pm UTC.

Doug loses touch with the front two who are locked into a good battle.

Turn 9 summary:
Ling does 140 and reaches the entrance to the corner on the inside. Harrington does 160 to end in the middle lane alongside Ling. Shulz finishes S2 at 100 and keeps inside.

Barletta stays safe at 80 through the S2 80s. Mossman follows with the same move. Pellegrino plots 100 and wants the S2 line but with Mossman on it he's forced to the outside shedding one wear in the 80 space.

Next deadline: turn 10 due Wednesday, June 21 at 6pm EDT/10pm UTC

Ling still leads but wore out this set of tires. The back three are three wide at the corner with Pellegrino on slightly fresher tires.

Turn 10 summary:
Ling takes his tires to bald by doing 80 through the 60 in both corners. Harrington save his tires by taking the 100 lane at speed. Schulz drops one wear in the 80s at 100.

Barletta, Mossman and Pellegrino do 120, 140 and 160 respectively to line up three wide at the corner. Pellegrino on the outside has a slight wear advantage. Will the dice be in play soon?

Next deadline: turn 11 due Friday, June 23 at 6pm EDT/10pm UTC
