Hello drivers. I am Jack Beckman, your Steward for this race. I have met quite a few of you in person, and several others online, but for those who don't know me, I have been racing for several years now, and I steward a race in Doug's ladder. I am also one of the founders of the Detroit CFR racing series, and will be taking over the duties as Steward there this year. So I have some experience.

That's doesn't mean I always get things right, so if you feel I have done something in error, PLEASE point it out as soon as you can so we can straighten it out, because there's a fair chance I did mess up.

Standard Redscape CFR rules will apply with the following exception: You may accelerate in a corner as long as it does not cause additional wear usage (or a chance roll) in the next space. The original rule only allows an increase in speed when no additional wear is used in the entire corner.

Plots will normally be due Monday, Wednesday, and Friday by 5 PM ET (US) unless I say otherwise. Real Life occasionally does intrude. I will acknowledge receipt of your plot; if you don't have an acknowledgement and it's getting close to the deadline, send it again or otherwise get in thought with me. My primary email is jbeckman@beckmanjm.com, but you can also reach me at jack.beckman@gmail.com or jcbeckman&mac.com if you suspect you aren't getting through to me otherwise.

I will be using a template created from one of Doug's spreadsheets, since it so nicely does so many calculations. This does mean the look will be slightly different from the Redscape look you saw before, and your cars will be different. I did try to match car colors as closely as possible to the previous race. However, I only have the 12 cars, so if you aren't happy with what I assigned, you'll need to find someone to switch with.

Car builds are due Monday, 7 January @ 5 PM ET (US). I will then send out the car builds to everyone and bids will be due Wednesday, 9 January @ 5 PM ET.

I have Builds from Doug and Chris already, so I have blurred out their stats for now.

If you have any questions, please feel free to ask!

Drivers,

Here's the bidding result. We had two ties, resolved via percentile die rolls.

And here's your starting grid:

Plots are due Monday, 11 Jan @ 5 PM ET. Late plots will be your start speed -20 (I have confirmed this with the other stewards) so don't be an NPR (No Plot Received)!

The lights go off and the cars roar off the grid!

Pole-sitter Don chooses not to push (putting him in the minority of drivers), going 100 into the inside.

Doug blinks and misses the lights going out (AUTO, NPR) and so goes 80 (SS-20) behind Don.

Dave pushes his start with 2 skill to 120 and succeeds (roll=7) and pulls nearly alongside Don for 2nd.

Jim also pushes with 2 skill to 120 (3), spending 1w on the 100s and sliding into 4th.

Chris pushes his SS with 2 sk (4) to 80 and is 5th.

Tim is one of the few drivers not pushing, using his 60 SS to end up 6th.

John pushes his SS with 2 sk (4) to 80 and is 7th.

Jeff also pushes with 2 sk (4, sorry I forgot to add to the graphic) to pull alongside John for 8th.

Fabio gets the jump on Will by pushing with a -3 chip (1) to 80 and is 9th.

Will is another driver content to not temp fate, running at 60.

Rando pushes his 100 to 120 with 2 sk (7) only to late brake to 100 with a wear when there’s no room at the inn for him.

Mike also pushes his 20 SS to 40 with 2 sk (2).

Next plot due Wednesday, 16 Jan @ 5 PM ET (US).

Doug runs at 100, and is forced to the 120s on the outside of Corner 4.

Please note the addition of Tim Mossman; Don will be unable to respond to some turns for a bit, and so Tim will take over for those turns. If you thought driver changes at Le Mans and Daytona were exciting, try changing when the car doesn’t stop!

Don speeds up to 140 and heads down the straight.

Jim completes the corner at 120.

Dave takes the corner at 120 for 2w on the outside.

Chris does likewise at 120 for 2w and gets a slip from Dave to pull along side.

Jeff takes the outside at 100 but without benefit of the line, spending 2w over the 60s.

John takes the inner line for 100 and 2w to pull ahead of Jeff.

Doug, at 100, has limited options, and so he chooses to dive to the inside for 2w and a Chance, using his -3 chip and rolling a modified 2. He also got a slip from Chris, allowing him to pull alongside Chris as he picks up 2 positions.

Tim gets the jump on Will at 120, but finds nowhere to go, and so rolls to late brake (naked) succeeding with a 7. He goes to the center line for 2w.

Will takes the outside line at 100 for 1w.

Fabio also takes the outside line at 120 for 2w.

Rando grabs the center line at 140.

Mike goes 160, pulling along side Rando.

Next plot due Friday, 1 Feb @ 5 PM ET (US).

Lots of dice rolling. *Most* drivers are happy with the outcomes...

Don takes the Wall of Champions corner at 120 for 2.

Jim opts to run up the line at 160 (testing his Top to get there, 1 sk = 5 OK) and needing the inside and P2 to Dave, who also runs at 160.

Chris also did 160, but really wanted the line, and so opts to late brake by rolling the bones (1 sk, 10 = Fail). Unfortunately, his brakes can’t take the strain; he burns a wear and his Decel is now 20.

Doug runs up at 120 and with the slip lines up behind Chris.

John runs up at 140.

Jeff does likewise and gets a slip from John.

Tim pushes his ACC to go +60 to 160, (roll=5).

Will pushes his ACC (1 sk, 8) and his Top (1 sk, 4) to get to 180.

Fabio used to 2 sk (roll=7) to test Top and get to 160.

Rando uses 2 sk to test Top (roll =5) and get to 160.

Mike appreciates the slip as he goes 160 and pulls alongside Rando.

Next plot due Wednesday, 6 Feb @ 5 PM ET (US).

Don pulls out of the corner at 140.

Jim gets the jump on Dave, going 120 on the line for 2w.

Dave pulls in behind Jim at 100 over the 60s for 2w after overbraking (roll=4).

Chris runs the line at 120 and gets a slip from Jim, pulling him into 3rd ahead of Dave.

Doug runs the line at 100 for 1w, getting a slip from Chris.

John takes the line for 100 and 1w.

Jeff is blocked from the line and so takes the 60s at 100 for 2w, pulling along side John.

Will pulls up to the line at 120.

Tim (NPR) slams the brakes, overbraking and extra -40 from 160 to 80 so that next plot he can enter the corner for free. (NPR before the Wall of Champions = bad idea.)

Fabio dives inside to take 8th place at 140.

Mike dives inside of Tim at 160.

Rando lines up behind Mike at 140.

Next plot due Friday, 8 Feb @ 5PM ET (US).
