Miller makes a bold move while the rest of the mid-pack jockey for position.

Turn 24 summary:
Mossman comes out of Beausset at 80 and hits the entrance to Bendor. Tatum holds 100 for already paid wear and catches the leader. Welage slows to 80 and shifts to the 80 lane mid-corner. Hancock plots 80 looking for the inside lane in the corner but Welage forces him to shift lanes to the 100s to finish his move.

Miller plots 120 and challenges Beausset with two wear. He then takes on Welage who is blocking, but a modified 6 gives him the pass and P3. Ling uses all the brake he has to get down to 100, taking the 100s for free. Kennington wants a 120 move but traffic won't allow it. He uses one wear to get down to 100 and another to take the 80s. Incorpora plots 100 for the middle lane at speed.

Bauska finishes the Signes line at 120 and drops to the inside. Blizzard already paid for a 140 move which puts him even with Bauska. Rando sheds one wear on the racing line at 140 and is in position for a slip next turn. Linneberg maintains two lengths back by scrubbing off one wear on the racing line.

Next deadline: turn 25 due Wednesday, December 6 at 6pm EST/11pm UTC

A strong move in the Virage du Pont yields the only position change this turn.

Turn 27 summary:
Mossman sheds one wear in Virage du Pont at 100 and gains a car length on Welage, who slows to 80 around the outside of the corner for free. Tatum drops one wear in the 80s at 100. Miller makes a move to the inside of the Virage at 100, scrubbing off two wear and is ready to attack the main straight.

Kennington, still nursing his bad brakes, plots 100 out of Bendor and sticks to the inside. Ling comes out of the corner at 100 and also grabs the inside. Hancock is locked at 80, keeping on the tail of the green machine. Incorpora uses his 100 on the outside to pull even with Hancock.

Bauska finishes the 80s at speed finishing behind Hancock. Blizzard finishes the corner at 100 to slide in behind Bauska. Rando slows to 80 and safely covers the inside lane of Bendor. Linneberg takes an RM plot which moves him around the outside at a safe 100.

Mossman keeps his two length lead through Verriere. Rando picks up two positions.

Turn 29 summary:
Mossman, Miller and Welage all plot 140 and cover the Verriere racing line for free. Welage gets a slip from Miller to pull even with the second place machine. Tatum takes the line at 120, losing a car length to the cars in front of him.

Incorpora uses all his acceleration to get to 160 and hold the inside position. Kennington's injured motor only gets him to 120, finishing inside. Ling asks his motor for a little push out of Virage du Pont and it delivers (naked 5) taking him to 160 and into P6. Hancock, at 140, gets a slip from Incorpora and keeps up with Ling.

Bauska and Blizzard make identical 80mph moves through the Virage 80s finishing the move as they began it. Rando puts his fate in his tires as he attacks the Virage 60 at 120. Two wear points and a three-skill roll of 5 later he's into 9th and clear of the cars behind. Linneberg is MIA so he floats into du Pont on the outside at 80.

Next deadline: turn 30 due Monday, December 18 at 6pm EST/11pm UTC

A reminder, the plan is turns as normal EXCEPT the 25th and 1st. If anyone needs something different let me know.
