6th - 8th hotly contested with 9th not far behind

Turn 25 summary:
Ling is first of a group to take the Curva 1 racing line. He does so at 140 for free. Tatum follows on the line at 160 shedding one wear. Bauska's bald tires force him down to 140 on the line. Miller is the last one to the line at 140.

Welage's 160 move catches Miller and the inside position gives him P4. Incorpora hugs the inside at 120. Mossman maxes his engine at 140 and pulls even with the black car. Kennington also hits his max speed of 160 to make it three wide.

Rando asks his crippled engine for a bit more acceleration (2 skill modified 8) and closes to two car lengths back of the group in front of him. Blizzard finishes Parabolica at 120, losing a length to Rando. Linneberg continues at 140, wear already paid, catching Blizzard. Hancock rolls out of the big turn at 120.

Next deadline: turn 26 due Monday, April 16 at 6pm EDT/10pm UTC

Another damaged engine and more movement around the cut lines.

Turn 26 summary:
Ling approaches Curva 3 at 140 on the outside. Tatum hits his top speed of 160 making up a length on the leader. Bauska holds 140 and takes the short way around Curva 2. Miller gets the initiative at 160 and sheds one wear on the racing line but is forced outside in the next curve.

Welage takes the Curva 1 120s at speed for free. Kennington asks his engine for 180 but his engine responds with a loud clang (naked 11). But even at 160 he picks up two spots. Incorpora reaches down and puts his cell phone on "silent" and runs the Curva 1 racing line at 140. Mossman is forced outside at 140 dropping one wear.

Rando catches the pair in front of him by knocking off one wear on the racing line at 160. Blizzard opens up his big engine to 180 and starts the line. Linneberg uses one skill to get to 160 (modified 4) and keeps on Blizzard's tailpipe. Although Hancock is NPR he can still reach his top speed, finishing two lengths off Linneberg.

Tight racing again changes the points at the promotion line

Turn 27 summary:
Ling flies through Curva 3 and into Curva VIP shedding three wear total. Tatum locks up the brakes (one wear) to get down to 100 leaving one more wear in the Curva 3 80s. Bauska's bald tires dictate that he bring it down to 80 around the outside of the corner. Miller plots 120 and wants the outside lane. Finding the yellow car slowly moving in that lane he uses one skill to stand on the brakes (modified 7) and put his tires to work on the inside (two wear). He grabs P3 moving Bauska below the cut line and putting Rando back in a transfer spot.

Welage slows slightly to 100 and sets up to take the corner on the inside. Kennington gets the most out of his damaged engine at 140 and grabs Welage's wing. Incorpora stays steady at 140 and adds to the line heading into Curva 3. Mossman does the same as he and Incorpora continue in lock-step.

Rando thought about keeping the pedal down but with the slow corner coming up and the traffic in front of him he backs off to 140 adding to the inside queue. Blizzard gets back to 140 for the Curva 1 racing line. Linneberg runs that line at 160, dropping a wear but being forced to the outside of Curva 2. Hancock keeps pace with the light blue race car at 160 also knocking off one wear on the line.

Next deadline: turn 28 due Friday, April 20 at 6pm EDT/10pm UTC
(Does that date ring a bell with any history buffs?)

A spin near the front will block Curva VIP next turn!

Turn 28 summary:
Ling finishes VIP at 100 and dives inside. Tatum saves wear by slowing to 60 around the outside but he still clears the corner. Miller slows to 80 and hits the 60s becoming the second car on bald tires. Bauska, the other car on bald tires, tries for 80 behind Miller. His tires break loose and he is barely able to control the spinning yellow machine (naked 9).

Welage drops to 60 around the inside of Curva 3. Kennington plots 100 and runs the outside of the corner scrubbing off one wear. Incorpora punches the brakes hard (1w) and takes the 60s at 80 for another wear. Mossman slows to 80 and stays outside to conserve wear.

Rando wanted to run into Curva 3 at 100 but with no room to finish that move he uses one skill to get down to 80 (modified 8) and hugs the inside curb shedding one wear. Blizzard hits the outer lane of the corner at 100 knocking off one wear. Linneberg finishes the outside of Curva 2 and shifts to the inside lane as he approaches the next corner. Hancock has just enough room and brakes to get to 120 and finishes on the outside of Linneberg.

Bauska gets moving again while things bunch up behind him but no one has to resort to dice.

Turn 29 summary:
Ling stretches his lead to five lengths at 140 down the back straight. Tatum comes off of Curva VIP at 100 down to the inside. Miller continues at 80, losing a length to Tatum. Bauska gets his car pointed in the right direction and pulls away at 60.

Welage and Kennington both run the VIP 40s at 80, dropping one wear and moving up one position each. Incorpora takes the outside of the corner at 80 for one wear as he comes up on Bauska. Mossman dives into the 40s at 80 leaving two wear behind.

Rando finishes the Curva 3 60s at 80 for already paid wear then knocks off one more wear in the VIP 60s still at 80. Blizzard slows to 80 and runs inside scrubbing off two wear. Linneberg rounds the Curva 3 60s at 80 for a wear then looks for the inside of VIP, but with Blizzard there he has to shoot outside for one more wear. Hancock moves at a conservative 80 around the outside 80s for free.

Ling clears Parabolica Interior all but sealing his victory while the rest of the field goes 2x2 from third back to tenth.

Turn 30 summary:
Ling sheds one wear in the Parabolica Interior 80s at 100. Tatum does 120 to reach the approach to the corner, finishing in the middle lane to keep his options open. Miller is the first to ask his engine for a little extra jump (modified 7) as he reaches 140 and finishes on Tatum's tail. Welage makes the same request of his engine (modified 5) and gets a slip from Miller enabling him to duck inside and take P3.

Kennington is able to keep up without dice in spite of his damaged engine. Bauska is the last to test his engine's mettle (modified 6) and pulls even with the blue racecar. Incorpora and Mossman continue as if locked together as Mossman plots 140 and Incorpora plots 120 but gets a slip from Bauska to keep even.

Rando exits Curva VIP at 80 and dives to the inside. Blizzard also maintains 80 around the inside to hold on to the last points position. Linneberg at 80 rounds the outside of the corner and starts for the inside. Hancock slows to 60 around the outside of VIP, conserving what's left of his tires.
