Marvin holds at 140 and gets the slip, remaining inside on the approach to the corner.

A four car battle for the lead but only one has any wear left.

Turn 10 summary:
Rae slows to 120 to finish the 100s and take the next racing line.
Peeples can accelerate to 140, finishing the 120s then late braking to follow Rae through the line.

Mossman starts at 140 then brakes to 120, shedding two wear in the 80s.

The final move of lap 1.

Turn 13 summary:
Rae jumps out to 160 and flies across the finish line.
Peeples finishes the racing line and moves inside.
Pellegrino at 100 also takes the line and starts for the inside.

Benham slows to 80 through the 80s and chooses to block the racing line.
Mossman plots 140 for the line, but with Benham blocking he late brakes to 120 and the brakes give way. He uses his final wear and a chance roll to successfully negotiate the 80s.
Marvin plods through the next to last racing line and starts the next one.

With that, there are now no further passes possible. Even if Benham pushes to 160, Mossman can reach 160 without a push and would move first regardless of the dice roll.

Attached is the initial grid for lap 2, subject to break activity. Drivers with damage may move a point into or out of damaged attributes without repair if desired, keeping in mind that any damage not repaired remains as damage either way.

Next deadline: break activity due Monday, July 6 at 4pm EDT/8pm UTC
