Rob makes an aggressive dive towards Curva 1 as the field works their way to Lap 2

RM Note: Just a note, make sure you keep a count of how many spaces to the corner, and write alternates if you need, cause I can't give the line or lane unless you tell me!

Turn 14 is due Monday March 20th at 11pm Eastern

Mario blasts down the straight at 140, starting the second lap and pulls to the outside to setup for the apex of Curva 1.

Rob uses Mario's slip to cut tight to Mario's inside at 140.

Joshua, Chris Brown, and Jack all go 160, with Jack getting a good response out of his engine (R Mod 3), and roll down the straight in formation.

Rob carves his way though Curva 1 to maintain the lead as there is a puff of smoke spotted from the main straight.

Turn 15 is due Wendesday March 21 at 11pm Eastern

RM Note: So in discussions on items covering rolls earlier between the RMs earlier, there was a small bit of clarification on "Default use of player skill" to which I may have misunderstood. So to clarify, there are two type of rolls. Expected and Unexpected.

Expected rolls are rolls that a car would of been required to take to complete the action (Chance rolls when declaring too fast, Acc/Top Rolls, Hard Break rolls)

Unexpected rolls are rolls that occur due to events in the group above (Late Breaks due to blocking, Crash Avoidance rolls, etc)

The defaults for these by the rules are different. Expected rolls have a default of no skill use. Unexpected rolls have a default of maximum allows skill use(this can include use of 3s). Please keep that in mind in your manuvers and if all else, make sure you make your movement as clear as possible.

Turn 14 Results

Rob wheels it through the inside of Curva 1 at 140 before tucking in tight into Curva 2.

Mario follows Rob though at 140 as he follows the apex of Curva 2 before sliding to Rob's outside.
