T3: Kevin, Chris, & Josh are off to the races. All except Curtis have cleared the hairpin.


T4.png
T4: Kevin is now a turn ahead. The widening of the track makes plenty of room for the peleton.


T5.png
T5: With a '10' showing, Mike wisely used a skill on his late brake. Huh... I just noticed the clock gets stuck at 9:29.
