Not a single car alike!

Half the field with 100 start speeds may bode well for some high bids for pole. With three 20's, Fabio may have found a sweet spot in the middle.

Note: Fabio is in the cockpit for Phil.

The starting grid is reset to seven with Michael unable to race.

I should have expanded the shots to include the plotted speeds. Ah well... live & learn.
