Trouble in the esses as two cars spin!!

Turn 26 summary:
Kennington gets the initiative and runs the 60s at 80 for one wear followed by the racing line. Kellison slows to 60 and finishes the racing line then jumps out to the outer lane with Kennington sitting on the inside. Orlandi plots 100 and looks for the outside followed by the racing line but Kennington has that move blocked. He's willing to pass but the only option to do that is to run the first line and pass Kellison in the outside lane. A zero skill roll of 7 (3, 4) means Orlandi must use his remaining wear to brake to 60 (two wear). With both he and Kellison out of wear, the 3, 4 roll means both of them spin, unable to pay the required wear. (Both can plot 60 next turn) Brown gets down to 80 and approaches the esses on the racing line.

Blizzard runs up to the corner at 120 on the inside. Ales and Mossman both plot 160, Ales grabbing the racing line while Mossman keeps to the inside. Collins maxes at 160 and sees the white flag.

Incorpora also does 160. A slip from Collins lets him pull even. Miller makes his engine work for a 200 move with two skill (modified 5) and catches Collins. Bauska tops out at 160 but that's good enough for the double slip to keep him on the wing of the orange race car. Brandt stomps it to 140 out of Juncao.

Next deadline: turn 27 due Wednesday, Aug 8 at 6pm EDT/10pm UTC

So far the pack is working through the esses safely.

Turn 27 summary:
Kennington uses all his acceleration to get to 140 into the back straight. Kellison and Orlandi both restart at 60, Kellison getting the inside since he moved first. Blizzard gets the initiative into the esses at 80 shedding one wear in the 60s then grabbing the 80 space.

Brown plots 60 around the first line for free and has to jump to the outside with Blizzard on the inside. Ales plots 120 to get the jump on Mossman. He then brakes to 100 (one wear) and runs the 60s (two wear) finishing on the second racing line. Mossman, at 100, takes the 60s (two wear) and ducks inside Ales to maintain P6 for now. Collins reaches the corner at 120 and chooses to approach on the inside.

Incorpora also does 120 and starts the racing line. Miller plots 140 but the two cars in front have the corner entrance blocked so a one skill roll (modified 6) drops him to 120. He takes the line behind the black car. Bauska slows slightly to 140 finishing inside of Miller for the position. Brandt keeps the pedal down at 140 and prepares to take the white flag.

Next deadline: turn 28 due Friday, Aug 10 at 6pm EDT/10pm UTC

A little jostling in the back of the pack but everyone will clear the esses next turn.

Turn 28 summary:
Kennington chooses to hold at 140 as he eyes the upcoming corner. Kellison and Orlandi remain side-by-side at 120 as they come back up to speed. Blizzard finishes the esses and grabs the wing of the silver car.

Brown comes off the corner at 100 and stays inside. Ales drops one wear on the racing line at 120 and beats Brown to the end of Curva do Sol to take P5. Mossman conserves his tires at 100 around the 100s. Collins gets the initiative going into the esses at 100 shedding two wear in the 60s and choosing the 100s in the second half.

Incorpora takes the first line at 100 for two wear and is forced around the inside lane in the second half of the esses for one more wear. Bauska slides outside around the 60s at 80 scrubbing off one wear. This leaves the line blocked for Miller who then must also use the 60s at 80 for one wear. Brandt keeps it at 140 and starts the line into the Senna S.

Next deadline: turn 29 due Monday, Aug 13 at 6pm EDT/10pm UTC

3-wide into the 2-wide corner with a line not far behind as tires are wearing out.

Turn 29 summary:
Kennington rides the 100s at speed for free. Kellison and Orlandi plot matching 140s with both shunning the inside lane. Blizzard's 140 with a slip from the silver machine brings him to the corner on the inside and P2.

Ales runs Reta Oposta at 160 remaining inside. Brown follows on with a 140 and a slip. Mossman plots 160 and stays on Brown's wing. Incorpora does 140 and gets a slip from Mossman to keep the queue intact.

Collins exits the esses at 140 and keeps the line in front of him in sight. Bauska gets the initiative and hits the second half of the esses in the 80 at 120 shedding two wear. Miller accelerates slightly to 100 and takes the racing line for free staying on Bauska's tail. Brandt attacks the esses at 100 dropping two wear in the 60s and another one in the 80.

Next deadline: turn 30 due Wednesday, Aug 15 at 6pm EDT/10pm UTC
