The 3-wide breaks up, interestingly resulting in no slip opportunities among the 3.

Turn 25 summary:
Mossman slows to 80 and takes the line around Concorde for free. Ales slows to match the speed of the red machine but is unable to clear the corner. Bauska preserves his precious remaining wear by running corners 3 & 4 at 100. Orlandi also does 100, saving a little rubber as well.

Brown uses his inside advantage to finish the virage at 120 through the 80s for already paid wear. He sheds one wear in the corner 3 100. Kellison makes the same move but is forced outside in corner 3 for free. Kennington comes out of the middle of the 3-wide at 120 choosing to drop one wear in the 100s. Collins holds his 120 speed through the 80s scrubbing off two wear and grabbing P7 (see RM note below on Collins' move).

Miller slows to 100 and continues the outside lane for free. Blizzard takes the white flag at 120 entering the corner on the inside. Brandt flies across the line at 160 and pulls even with Blizzard clipping two wear.

Next deadline: turn 26 due Monday, March 8 at 4pm EST/8pm UTC
(Note the UTC time change for the summer)

RM note: Collins plotted 140 for 2 wear around the 100s. Since he entered the corner last turn for 0 wear, he cannot accelerate if it would increase his penalty in the next space. He can, however, maintain his speed. By rule, when adjusting a plot, the RM (me) should attempt to use the same amount of wear from the original plot. Therefore he was able to use the two wear and, in fact, ends in the same space as he would have, just 20mph slower.

Pont de la Concorde gets a little backed up.

Turn 26 summary:
Mossman exits the corner at 120 and starts the corner 8 line. Ales finishes Concorde at 100 for free. Bauska runs the racing line at 80 for free and ends up pulling quite a train. Orlandi scrubs off one wear on the racing line at 100.

Brown holds 120 shedding one wear in the corner 4 100 and another two on the line looking to make a move. Kellison also keeps the speed at 120 and follows Brown's move, also dropping one wear in corner 4. Collins slows to 100 taking the two corners at speed and setting up on the Concorde line to finish the snake. Kennington takes an RM plot at 120 running both sets of 120s.

Miller takes the corner 3 120s at speed and hugs the curb at the entrance to corner 4. Brandt slows to 140 and finishes Senna in the 100s for already paid wear. Blizzard moves to the middle lane at 100 at a cost of one wear, finishing behind the brown race car.

Next deadline: turn 27 due Wednesday, March 13 at 4pm EST/8pm UTC

Things tighten up for P3 while an apparent mis-plot costs a driver the racing line.

Turn 27 summary:
Mossman runs the corner 8 line at 100 for free. Ales continues to mirror his every move, clearing the corner on the line. Bauska uses one skill to push his already crippled engine to 120 (modified 3) and starts the line into corner 8. Orlandi sees a possible opening and runs the short back straight at 140 finishing inside Bauska for P3 for now.

Brown uses his already paid wear to accelerate to 140 out of Concorde and starts the line on the wing of the yellow machine. Kellison slows to 100 around Concorde shedding one wear on the line. Collins drops two wear on the Concorde line at 120, pulling even with Kellison. Kennington runs the Concorde line scrubbing off half of his remaining rubber.

Miller plots 100 for the line using the corner 4 120s to end up behind Kennington for one wear. Brandt remains conservative at 100 through the 100s in both corners 3 & 4. However, he did not specify a finish position. The default is inside so that's where he ends up. (Note: he now has more wear than he can use in the remaining corners. Does he have a plan?) Blizzard runs the same 100s at 120 knocking off one wear in each and grabbing the, now vacant, racing line.

Next deadline: turn 28 due Friday, March 15 at 4pm EST/8pm UTC

Things look spread out but Epingle is likely to change that quickly.

Turn 28 summary:
Mossman and Ales match 140 moves down the straightaway. Bauska runs the corner 8 line at 120 and now has four bald Pirelli's to work with. Brown saves wear around the line at 100 but with a slip from Bauska he stays one car length back.

Orlandi maxes his brakes and covers the 80s at speed. Collins continues his push through the pack shedding two wear on the racing line at 140. Kellison anticipates Collins' move and does 120 on the line, scrubbing off one wear but clearing the corner. Kennington takes the back stretch with one big 140 move and starts the corner 8 line.

Miller has an itch that won't wait for the finish line to scratch. Reaching for his ankle he presses on the gas a little and his car fades up to 120 as he finishes the corner but stays outside (NPR). Brandt pulls two wear out of his stash to run the 80s at 120 and hold on to P10. Blizzard slows to 80 and takes the line for free.

Next deadline: turn 29 due Monday, March 18 at 4pm EST/8pm UTC

Brown, Kellison & Collins the biggest moves through sector 1.

As expected, things get tight approaching Epingle.

Turn 29 summary:
Mossman clears Epingle at 120 shedding two wear and virtually assuring the victory. Ales is forced to slow to 100 to approach the corner on the outer line. Bauska sets up behind Ales at 140. Brown gets his engine to get him to 160 (naked 9) and starts the inner racing line.

Orlandi uses his full acceleration to get to 140, keeping to the inside. Collins maxes his top speed and pulls even with Orlandi. Kellison plots 140 and gets a slip from Collins to keep pace. Kennington runs the corner 8 racing line at 100 for free.

Miller does the same, preserving his final wear point. Brandt continues his attack, dropping two wear on the line at 140. Blizzard approaches corner 8 on the line at 120.

Next deadline: turn 30 due Wednesday, March 20 at 4pm EST/8pm UTC
