Four drivers push the start and all pass

Turn 15 summary:
Mossman pushes with a modified roll of 1 and gets lap 2 under way. Pellegrino's modified roll of 5 keeps the front row intact. Schulz also rolls a modified 5 as does Ling to keep row 2 right behind. Harrington and Barletta both do 60 and keep the row intact but lose a space to the middle row.

*Note the points chart in the lower right. It will update every turn. However, since the final tie breaker is finish position on lap 3, during lap 2 positions of tied drivers will be arbitrary.

Next deadline: turn 16 due Wednesday, July 5 at 6pm EDT/10pm UTC

Harrington rounds The Wall at 80 through the 40 dropping two wear and gets to the back of the blue car. Barletta sheds two wear in the 60s at 100 and falls in behind Harrington. Ling slows to 60 taking the racing line for free.

The front four are in a pack with the back two not far behind.

Turn 18 summary:
Pellegrino hits the S1 racing line at 120 for free. Mossman follows with a 120 move and grabs the black car's wing. Schulz wheels around the Bridge racing line at 160 leaving one wear behind and finishes inside of Mossman to take the spot.

Harrington plots 140 so the Bridge racing line is free and a slip from Schulz keeps him in the front pack. Barletta does 120 around the racing line and gets a slip from Harrington. Ling also gets a slip and is able to cover the Bridge 120 at speed.

Next deadline: turn 19 due Wednesday, July 12 at 6pm EDT/10pm UTC

Mossman reclaims P3. P1 & P4 separated by only two spaces.

Turn 20 summary:
Pellegrino does 140 down the straightaway and finishes in the middle lane to keep his options open for the corner. Schulz at 160 makes up a space on the leader.

Harrington comes out of S2 at 160 and keeps on Schulz's tail. Mossman also does 160 out of the corner and gets a slip from Schulz to pull even with him.

Barletta keeps a safe 100 through S2, as does Ling who stays right on his wing.

A new leader, and the rest of the pack tightens up.

Turn 21 summary:
Pellegrino uses all his brakes to get to 80 and sheds one wear on the racing line. Mossman gets the initiative by plotting 120 then using one wear and one skill to brake to 80 (modified 6) and scrubs off two more wear on the inner 40 space.

Schulz plots 100 and looks for the racing line or the inside, but with both blocked he's forced outside. Harrington at 100 has just enough room to get the racing line behind Pellegrino at a cost of two wear.

Barletta jumps out to 160 and gets the racing line just before the Triangle. Ling also grabs high gear to 160 and with a slip ducks inside for the position.

Next deadline: turn 22 due Friday, July 21 at 6pm EDT/10pm UTC

Three 2x2s as we come out of the Triangle.

Turn 22 summary:
Mossman and Pellegrino both come out of the corner at maximum acceleration and remain side by side.

Schulz finishes the outside lane dropping two wear and moves inside. Harrington comes through on the racing line for already paid wear and keeps up with Schulz.

Ling and Barletta both plot 100 with Ling having the inside advantage. He uses the outside lane shedding two wear. He sits on the racing line denying it to Barletta who has to follow around the outside for two wear but is able to drop inside to take the position.

Next deadline: turn 23 due Friday, July 21 at 6pm EDT/10pm UTC

NOTE: The WBC begins on the 22nd so here is what I propose. After Friday's move the "official" deadline for turn 24 will be July 31. However, if I get all moves during the week I will process the turn. If I again get all moves during the week I will again process. So whether we miss any turns or how many we miss will be up to the folks at WBC.

A puff of smoke from a front runner causes concern. He will probably be all right for this lap but he will have a decision to make between laps.

Turn 23 summary:
Pellegrino attempts 180 but his engine can't take the strain (naked 12) so he replots 160. This gives Mossman the initiative at 160 and he grabs the outer racing line for The 90. Pellegrino was looking for the same move but now decides to stay inside.

Schulz and Harrington plot matching 160s and drag race down the straightaway side by side. Two spaces back, Ling and Barletta do the same.

Next deadline: turn 24 due Monday, July 31 at 6pm EDT/10pm UTC
As mentioned before, if I get all moves before then I will resolve the turn

The field closes up as they enter the slow section of the course.

Turn 24 summary:
Pellegrino plots 100 then late brakes to 80 (naked 7) around the inner racing line scrubbing off one wear. Mossman also does 100 around the outer racing line losing one wear in the process.

Schulz and Harrington continue side by side up to the entrance of The 90; Schulz on the inner line and Harrington on the outer line.

Ling plots 180 using one skill to test top speed (modified 5) then late brakes to 160 (naked 5) pulling even with Schulz and Harrington making it three wide at the corner. Barletta slows to 120 to better keep on eye on the group in front of him. He grabs the inner line to prepare for the corner.

Next deadline: turn 25 due Monday, July 31 at 6pm EDT/10pm UTC
If I get all moves early I will resolve the turn then.
