urn 2 is due Monday at 6pm Eastern

And the lights go off and they are off! Well...most of them. Justin misses his clutch step and ends up spinning his tires!

Among the others, Brent blasts out ahead into Nordkurve as the field falls in in a cascade of positions behind him, with drivers going three wide beside Justin.

RM Note: as before, no points until Turn 3

Sooo....as noted I dun goofed.

Jack with a passed start is going 80, and thus is running into a blocked track.
By his 1, 1A, and 7 in defaults in this situation he does a Force Pass with 2 Skill, passing against Rando unblocked(No Defaults).

The resulting roll was an 8, which is modified to a 6, which means Jack completes the Pass and slots inside Justin and Marshall. Corrected graphic is below.

Turn 3 is due Wendesday at 6pm Eastern

Brent leads them through Nordkurve, with Tony hot on his heels as they approach the sharp corner at Einfart-Parabolika.

Behind them, stronger starts lead to Guiseppe and Bruce pulling past Federico as they work through Nordkurve.

At the back, Rando and James run neck and neck ahead of the recovering Justin as they approach the corner.

RM Notes:
As noted, Standings will begin to be posted in Turn 3.

For reference
GA=Green Arrow
RA=Red Arrow

Justin: at your current speed you are short of the Green Line enough to slide over so you were put inside

Jack: No slip due to slower lead car

Turn 4 is due Friday at 6pm Eastern

Brent leads the front runnings through Einfart-Parabolika, a slip line forming as they bang down the first half straight towards Parabolika.

On the approach to Einfart, drivers begin to pile in, Bruce burning a little rubber to squeak into the corner head of them. Jack sees the pileup and takes Nordkurve wide to burn off speed.

Back at Nordkurve, James burns tire as he shoots through the apex, pulling ahead of Rando and beside Jack as he exits.

RM Notes:

As Turn 3 as been completed, points are posted. Tiebreakers to note are: a)Best Finish, b)Best Most Recent Finish

Tony and Federico: No Move Reported, NPR#1

Also, again I will advise if you think you are going to be out of reach, pre-post at least 2-3 turns ahead. I'll try to remind, but always remember that unless such is mentioned differently, deadlines are MWF at 6pm Eastern (UTC -4)

Turn 6 is due Wendesday at 6pm Eastern

And we have a challenge for the lead! Guiseppe slingshots off Brent's slip shooting past Tony and pulling inside of Brent as they approach the hairpin!

Slipstreams also the name of the day in the rear pack, as Frederico uses a oush by Marshall to shoot past David and Bruce and pull into 5th! Driver string out behind that group as they roll though the Parabolika

RM Notes:

James: request was inside. May be best to prefer slip first next time.
Rando NPR #1, Warning

Turn 8 is due Monday at 6pm Eastern.

Brent leads the front three up towards the Mercedes corner, with Guiseppe setting to challenge again along the outside.

Back at the Hairpin, a hard charging Jack wheels his car through the outside of the corner, pulling past a few cards and pulling into 6th.

As the field completes the corner, there is radio activity from Rando's camp, as it seems the driver is reporting brake issues.

RM Notes:
No slips were available as in every possible option the trail car was faster than the lead car XP.

Turn 11 is Due Monday 6pm Eastern

Brent pounds out of Sachs and rolls through Sudkurve as he prepares to begin lap 2.

Drivers in the mid pack work their way through Mobil 1 and pile into Sachs. As they do, James' radio is a buzz as he reports brake issues, though not without powering around the outside of Sachs with Gusto.

Turn 12 is due Wendesday at 6pm Eastern

Brent stretches his lead as he begins the second lap and pounds pavement.

Back at Sudkurve, James blasts down the inside, pulling ahead of Federico out of Sachs and inside of Marshall as he advances to fourth.

Further back at the exit of Sachs, tire smoke is seen as drivers bunch up as they clear in the exit.

RM Notes:

Marshall: inside isn't available from there, ended middle.
Rando: 40 Dec is a hard break with your damaged brakes, -1 W due to no defaults
Bruce: 1 W due to late break to avoid collision and no defaults.
