A Final push results in one position (and one point) gained.

Turn 16 summary:
Ales finishes comfortably at 160 for third place. Brandt takes a slip from Ales but it's not enough to move up. Rae keeps safe at 160. Polcen goes for the pass with a naked top speed roll (6) and finishes P5. (Disregard the dice roll on Ling's line, oops)

Drivers: let me know if you are going to adjust your car during the interval. Since there is no damage no one will be repairing. If you are not going to make any adjustments you may send your next turn. If I get all turns with no adjustments by Wednesday I will adjudicate. The "official" deadline for turn 17 is Friday, Jul 13.

The starting grid for lap 2.

No surprise three drivers move a point to top speed: Brandt from start speed, Ales from skill and Ling from deceleration. Polcen moves a point from wear to start speed. Rae and Tatum make no adjustment and will start from the front row.

Next deadline: turn 17 due Friday, Jul 13 at 6pm EDT/10pm UTC

Lap 2 is underway.

Turn 17 summary:
Rae pushes his start with two skill (modified 6) and grabs the racing line. Tatum starts at 100 and sits on the line behind the red car. Polcen, also at 100, finishes the queue for the corner.

Brandt is happy with his 60 start speed, keeping Inside. Ling tries to push to 120 with two skill but a modified 9 forces him to replot to 80. Ales passes a two skill push roll (modified 5) and now has the initiative at 80, finishing outside Brandt. Ling's (now) 80 move makes it three wide.

Next deadline: turn 18 due Monday, Jul 16 at 6pm EDT/10pm UTC

Verriere strings out the field.

Turn 18 summary:
Rae uses one skill to push to 180 (modified 4) shedding two wear on the racing line. Tatum runs the line at 140 for free but the double slip keeps him on Rae's wing. Polcen also does 140 along the line and gets a slip but loses touch with Tatum.

Ling gets the jump out of the three-wide at 160, dropping one wear on the line and grabbing P4. Brandt follows the line at 120 clearing the corner. Ales also plots 120 but is forced around the outside to avoid the yellow car.

Next deadline: turn 19 due Wednesday, Jul 18 at 6pm EDT/10pm UTC

Reminder: after turn 19 the "official" deadline will be Aug 3, but we will be in "trigger mode". Any time I get all 6 moves for a turn I will adjudicate.

Rae uses a lot of wear to get a gap on P2.

Turn 19 summary:
Rae uses two skill to get down to 100 (modified 5) then burns two wear each in the chicane 80/60 and another two in the Saint-Beaume 60. Tatum slows to 80 and follows the 80s for free. Polcen hits the chicane at 100 shedding two wear in the 80/60 and taking 2nd position.

Ling approaches the chicane at 100 on the inside. Brandt comes off of Verriere at 140 and pulls even with Ling. Ales finishes the 120s at speed, maintaining his slight wear advantage.

Next deadline: turn 20 due Friday, Aug 3 at 6pm EDT/10pm UTC

Rae jumps out to a 5 length lead.

Turn 20 summary:
Rae accelerates to 120 (legal as the corner speed increased) for already paid wear and attacks the straightaway. Tatum gets the initiative with a 120 plot and then uses one skill to late brake (modified 7), taking the 80s for one wear. Polcen's 100 plot leaves him only one option, the 60 followed by the 100s for two wear.

Ling and Brandt remain side-by-side as each runs the 80s at speed for free. Ales holds at 120 into the Chicane 80s scrubbing off two wear.

Next deadline: turn 21 due Friday, Aug 3 at 6pm EDT/10pm UTC
