Eight drivers reach for the dice. Incorpora uses his big 3-skill chip while all the others use two skill (Rando and Mossman being the only two that actually needed them).

Turn 1 summary:
The first six drivers, Hancock, Incorpora, Ling, Tatum, Mossman and Welage all test start speed to 80 and keep the pack relatively intact.

Bauska uses his big 100 start speed to make the back row of the lead pack three wide. Blizzard and Linneberg use their 60 starts to head the second pack on the inside. Rando pushes to 40 to keep in touch with the cars ahead of him. Kennington's 60 start forces him outside of Rando. Miller pushes to 40 and is able to keep on Rando's wing.

(Note: The points chart will update with each turn. As always, ties during race 2 are arbitrarily placed since the final tie-break is position in race 3.)

Next deadline: turn 2 due Friday, October 13 at 6pm EDT/10pm UTC

This was quite a challenging turn for your RM. Thanks to all drivers that sent "if/then's" for the first corner.

Turn 2 summary:
Hancock leads the pack through Verriere at 140 on the racing line. Incorpora does 120 on the line for free but causes a lot of scrambling behind him. Ling flies through the 100s at 140 shedding two wear and getting a slip from Hancock to pick up P2. Tatum plots 140 but spends one wear to late brake and stay on the racing line (no slip since Incorpora plotted 120).

Mossman also plots 140 and makes a one skill roll (modified 2) to late brake and keep on the line behind Tatum. With things getting crazy in front of him, Welage at 140 takes the 100 and 120s getting a slip from Tatum (since Tatum began the turn at 140) and dropping two wear. Bauska does exactly the same thing except with no dancing partner he does not get a slip. Blizzard picks up the start of the racing line at 120.

Linneberg does 120 and with a slip from Blizzard he slides inside for the position. Rando spends two skill to boost his acceleration (modified 4) and hits 100 with a slip but loses touch with the cars in front of him. Kennington at 120 stays beside Rando. Miller uses his big acceleration to get to Rando's wing on the inside.

Next deadline: turn 3 due Monday, October 16 at 6pm EDT/10pm UTC

Things bunch up as the pack hits the first slow section.

Turn 3 summary:
Ling grabs P1 by plotting 140 then late braking for one wear. He goes into the Chicane 80s at 120 for another two wear. Hancock follows into the 80s at 100 dropping one wear. Incorpora was also looking for the 80s but is forced to the outside at 100. Tatum has the inside advantage at 120, keeping to the inside at the entrance to the Chicane.

Welage does 120 to keep next to Tatum. Mossman's 140 move off of Verriere gives him the jump and he makes it three wide. Bauska does 120 and looks for a slip but a wall of cars prevents him from getting it. Linneberg sheds one wear in the Verriere 100s at 120 to maintain P8.

Blizzard takes the racing line at 120 for free to stay side-by-side with Linneberg. Rando covers the corner racing line at 140 for free and now sits on the wing of the dark blue racecar. Miller also runs the line at 140 and with a slip from Kennington he pulls even with Rando.

Next deadline: turn 4 due Wednesday, October 18 at 6pm EDT/10pm UTC.

The two leaders nose to tail, then then next 9 are two wide in a long freight train.

Turn 4 summary:
Ling continues the 80s in the Chicane then keeps inside through St. Beaume, clearing the corner but dropping two wear to do so. Hancock follows in Ling's tire tracks also shedding two wear. Incorpora drops one wear in the Chicane 80s and holds the inside at the next corner. Welage comes out of the three wide and nicks one wear at 100 through the 80s.

Tatum uses the inside advantage to move next at 80 and covers the Chicane for free choosing to finish behind Welage. Mossman also plots 80 and tries to save some wear but the only open lane is the 60 so he lightens his tires by one wear but finishes inside of Tatum to pick up P5. Bauska takes the Chicane at 80 for free and sits on Mossman's wing. Linneberg gets the initiative from the three wide group at 100 and scrubs off one wear in the 80s.

Blizzard does 100 but chooses to stay on the outside of the corner for free. Kennington also plots 100 at a cost of one wear to exceed his deceleration, then hits the only path available to him; the 80 followed by the 60 for two more wear but a jump of three positions to P7. Rando starts at 120 then loses one wear to late brake, losing another wear in the Chicane 80, picking up a spot. Miller avoids trouble by doing a conservative 80, finishing in the middle lane to keep his options open.
