The fans come to their feet as the field roars to life.

Turn 1 summary:
Mossman uses two skill (modified 1) to get out to 120 and a big lead. Kellison doesn't tax his engine keeping at 60 on the inside. Incorpora uses one of his big skill chips (modified 3) and gets his car to 80 finishing even with Kellison. Kennington does not push and his 60 move puts him on the silver car's wing.

Ales' two skill push (modified 2) gets him to 80 and right behind his countryman. Miller, unfortunately, is the only driver to fail the roll with a two skill modified 9 he does 40 and heads inside. Collins is happy with his car's 100 start speed and gives us our first three-wide already. Bauska pushes with two skill (modified 7) and sits behind that group.

Blizzard makes a safe 60 move and takes the inside lane. Brandt pushes to 40 (modified 8) and sets up behind the purple machine. Orlandi's two skill push (modified 4) gets him even with Blizzard. Brown, the last to push (modified 7) is able to keep in Brandt's draft.

Next deadline: turn 2 due Monday, Sep 24 at 6pm EDT/10pm UTC

Four wide into the first corner will need to filter down to two wide on corner exit.

Turn 2 summary:
Mossman keeps the pedal down running the green racing line at 120 dropping two wear. Incorpora grabs the green line behind Mossman at 120. Kellison holds steady at 60 and starts the red line for now. (He may move to the green line with no penalty next turn) Kennington maxes his acceleration to 120 and starts the green line behind Incorpora.

Ales also plots 120 but neither racing line is available to him so he finishes behind the black car for a potential slip next turn. Collins also does 120 finishing just inside of Ales. Bauska takes his full acceleration to 120 and gets a slip from Kennington. The only space available by now is the inside making it four wide. Miller at 100 finishes in a position to take either line next turn.

Blizzard punches his acceleration (modified 7) and chooses to finish outside making the green line a possibility next turn. Orlandi can reach 140 without pushing and with the outer lanes occupied he drops to the inside. Brandt does 100 and gets a slip from Blizzard. He finishes behind the orange car. Brown looks for a slip at 100 but Brandt didn't give him the tow he was looking for.

20 wear points spent this turn, most of them unexpected as corner 1 comes to a near standstill.

Turn 3 summary:
Mossman keeps running away at 100 shedding one wear in the inside 80 of corner 4. Incorpora runs the corner 1 green line at 120 dropping two wear and keeping a little pressure on the leader. Ales is first out of the four-wide and now the "fun" begins. He plots 120 then brakes to 100 using one wear. He uses two more wear in the 60s and finishes on the end of the green racing line. Kennington is next at 120 wanting the green line but it's not available. He's forced down to 80 for two wear and around the middle 40s for two more.

Bauska plots 100 intending to brake to 80 but with nowhere to go he's forced down to 60 for two wear and into the middle 40s for one more. Finally Collins comes out of the four-wide at 80 and is able to take the 60s for one wear. Orlandi starts the movement out of the three-wide with a 120 plot that becomes 100 for one wear. His only choice is outside behind Collins for two more wear. Blizzard is looking for 100 on the green line. He can get the line but only after braking to 80 for a wear.

Kellison takes the conservative approach as he plots 80 and is able to make that move on the red racing line. It only costs him one wear and he picks up three positions. Miller plots 120 and is prepared to take either line but instead he is forced onto the brakes for one wear and tucks in behind Orlandi. Brandt looks for a slip but there's no room to use it. Instead his 100 move gets him along the red racing line. Brown is able to actually use his 120 plot as he swings outside to start the green line.

The field gets down to 2-wide with some more braking.

Turn 4 summary:
Mossman Comes off of corner 4 and into corner 6 at 100 dropping one wear on the racing line. Incorpora rounds corner 4 at 120 shedding two wear and keeping on Mossman's wing. Ales hits corner 4 at 100 for one wear on the inside. Kennington also does 100 and holds the inside approach to the corner.

Kellison lead the group out of corner 1 at 120 and sets up on Kennington's outside. Bauska wanted the same move but now must brake to 100. Collins tries to be conservative with 100 plot but there's no room for that so he brakes to 80 and keeps pace with Bauska. Orlandi finishes the outside 60s at 80 for already paid wear and gets the wing of the yellow machine.

Blizzard finishes the green line at 80 for free and takes his position outside of Ales. Miller slows to 80 and leaves one wear in the 60s. Brandt finishes the red racing line at 80 for one wear. Brown slows to 60 and runs the green line through corner 1.

A comparatively quiet turn as the field snakes through corners 2 through 5

Turn 5 summary:
Mossman continues his charge at 100 shedding two wear in the corner 7 60s. Incorpora slows to 80 and takes the 80s for free. Ales holds at 100 dropping one more wear on the racing line. Kellison beats the blue car through corner 4 by doing 100 and leaving one wear behind.

Kennington covers the corner 4 inside 80 at speed and starts the next line. Bauska and Collins both run the inside 80 at speed to remain side-by-side. Orlandi and Blizzard perform the same dance and finish behind them.

Miller at 80 runs into the inside 80 for free. Brandt, also at 80, wanted the same but is forced to the outside lane. Brown finishes corner 1 and runs 80 along the short straight.

One NPR and one failed dice roll.

Turn 6 summary:
Mossman blasts away from corner 7 at 140. Incorpora drops one wear in the corner 7 60s at 80. Ales sheds two wear in the same corner at 100 to close on his countryman. Kellison is NPR so he slows to 80 around the outside of the corner and finishes inside, off of the line.

Kennington slows to 80 through the racing line for free. Bauska plots 100 and looks for the line but the blue car is still on the end of it. He decides to hit the brakes and hold the line but a loud bang tells him his brakes disagree with his decision. Collins is at 80 and also looking for the line but Bauska forces him to the outside lane. Orlandi maintains 80 and ducks inside Collins on the line.

Blizzard anticipates some problems in the corner and backs down to 60, starting the racing line. Miller's 80 move puts him inside Blizzard for position but off the line. Brandt finishes corner 4 at 80 and starts the line behind the purple machine. Brown is able to run the inside of corner 4 at 80 for free and make up a car length on Brandt.

Our pit reporter tells us that Jimmy Jake is now the FORMER brake tech for team yellow. So far everyone else is safe through corners 6 & 7,

Turn 7 summary:
Mossman continues to rabbit the field dropping two wear each in corners 8 and 10. Incorpora drags the straightaway at 120 and sets up on the racing line. Ales at 140 is able to get inside for P2 but he's hot going into corner 8. Kellison recovers from a momentary loss of concentration as he rounds corner 7 at 80 through the 60s shedding one wear.

Kennington drops to 60 around the 60s to save a little rubber. Bauska's damaged brakes bring him down to 60. He scrubs off one wear in the 40. Orlandi comes off corner 6 at 100 and leaves two wear on the corner 7 60s making it three wide attacking the straightaway. Collins holds a steady 80 into the 60s for one wear.

Miller runs hard into corner 6 at 80 and hits corner 7 even harder in the 40. The total damage is three wear. Blizzard is also at 80 but has the racing line for corner 6 and is able to keep even with Miller for now. Brandt and Brown run nose to tail through corner 6 on the racing line at 80 for free.

Two drivers make big gains.

Turn 8 summary:
Mossman finally takes a corner at speed as he runs corner 11 at 120 on the line. Ales runs hard into corners 8 & 9 at 100 dropping two wear in each of the 60 lanes. Incorpora sheds two wear on the corner 8 line at 100 but must move to the outside in corner 9 for one additional wear. Kellison shoots the straight at 120 and grabs the line.

Orlandi is first out of corner 7 at 140 and finishes inside Kellison, picking up three positions. Bauska follows at 120 hitting the line behind the silver machine. Kennington is distracted by the doohicky next to the thingamabob on the dash, accelerating to 80 and moving outside to stay out of the way. Collins continues at 80 through the 60s for already paid wear.

Miller uses all his acceleration to get to 140 and also climbs three positions. Blizzard drops to 60 and takes the outside of the corner for free. Brandt takes the 40 space at speed and keeps on the inside. Brown scrubs off one wear in the 60s at 80 and is ready to drag race Brandt to the next corner.

Still some pocket battles going on.

Plenty of dice this turn. And the four lane main straight denies a few slip opportunities.

Turn 13 summary:
Mossman negotiates corners 1 & 2 at 100 on the green line shedding one wear. Ales slows to 120 and starts the green line. Incorpora at 140 pulls within one car length of Ales, starting the green line right behind him. Kellison maxes his engine at 160 and drops inside.

Orlandi also does 160 and uses a slip to pull even with Kellison. Bauska finishes the outside racing line and starts for the inside. Kennington brings the corner 13 crowd to their feet as he runs the outside racing line at a full 200mph (naked 8). He starts inside but isn't able to get behind Bauska. Miller is the beneficiary of Kennington's move as he runs the outside line at a safe 160 and the double slip means he loses no ground to the blue machine. He can't change lanes at the end of the line so there will be no slip next turn.

Collins uses two skill to get to 160 (modified 3) scrubbing off two wear on the inside racing line. Although he's only a car length behind Miller he, too, has no slip opportunity. Blizzard asks his engine for a little extra acceleration and it barely is able to respond (modified 9). He roars into the corner 13 outer racing line at 180 leaving one wear behind. Brown keeps the crown on their feet as the flies into the corner also at 180 and hangs right on the wing of the purple racecar. Brandt finishes corner 12 at 140 and starts the inside racing line, preparing to take the short way around the corner.
