Hello and welcome all racers and fans to the third leg of this seasons Circuit at Estoril. The drivers have setup at the line and the engines are preparing to go.

Before we go over results a brief mention from the RM:

So for some reason(perhaps it was the short timing, I dunno), we had 3 no bids(1 late, 2 no answer) for the race. Due to this I am going to quickly reinterate some things.

1. Unless something is noted differently, turns will Run M/W/F with a deadline of 11pm. All adjustments are temporary and will be noted when they occur. There are times when i may take a late move if I have not processed the turn, but do not bet on it.
2. Remeber that NPRs have been restricted. No more than 3 NPRs a lap and 4 for the race.
3. If anyone need help due to stuff going on, you are always welcome to let me know and plan ahead, and I will also help with said planning if needed.

With that, the Pole Bid was preety straight forward. Rob will lead us off with a bid of 8.5 and is met on his outside by Mario with a bid of 6. Bids from there decreased downward until you reached 0, in which several drivers rolled up for spots. Bid results are below.

With that in mind, Turn 1 is due Friday Feburary 16th at 11pm Eastern! Good Luck!

and the lights are out, and they are off! Several drivers time their clutch well, and get a jump, especially Joshua who begins to charge though the field.

RM Note: As with Race 2, Drivers Standings will be posted after Turn 3, so as to let the field sort itself out a little.

Turn 2 is due Monday Feb 20th at 11pm Eastern. Keep in mind the sched is MWF.

Rob sees the lights go out and races off the line at 100, staying outside to keep the line for turn 1.

Mario quickly shift upward to accelerate to 80, and hits his marks, pulling in behind Rob.

Claudio content with his car, decides not to push the limit and pulls along the inside at 80.

Chris Brown on the other hand, decides to push the issue, and rapidly shifts up as the light go out. He succeeds and goes 80, passing Claudio and pulling in behind Mario.

Pepe also pushes through the gears to go 80 and pulls up alongside Claudio.

Jack eases it up to 60 and pulls in behind Claudio.

Sean also easies it up to 60 and pulls to the outside.

Christina does the quick shift work to get up to 80 and is able to pull to the inside of Sean.

His engine not to fastest from stop, Chris does his best to force it to go 40 and is able to get it to respond, and pulls in behind Sean.

Tony decides to take it easy on the start as well and pulls in behind Josh.

After a bad qualifying, Josh attempt to use his big launch boost to quickly gain some spots. Quickshifting up to 120, Josh is able to thread the needle and pass four cars before pulling up behind Pepe.

Sorry all, in trying to process NPR I didn't take into account Rob's deceleration. Since Rob cannot decelerate to 60 with hard breaking but can safely decelerate into the corner (20 Over) at 80, Rob is actually in the corner at 80 for 1 W.

This means
1. Rob is in the next corner at 1W less.
2. The road was clear for Chris Brown for pulls outside of Mario for 1W
3. Claudio is not forced to late break and is outside at 1W.

Corrected Graphic is attached. Sorry all.

(Minor graphic error, Claudio is at 18 not 17)

So when I ran the turn I forgot that Joshua and Jack were uneven, and thus, Joshua goes first. Final Corrected Graphic here.
