One more turn should decide it all

Turn 33 summary:
Puddifoot slams the gas to get to 180 then slams the brakes short of the corner, succeeding at both
Ingraham takes a comparitively leisurely 160 to finish P6
Kubala is able to nose to the line at 140

Kennard tries the middle lane at 120 and manages to make it stick
Welage comes around the inside of the final corner at 120 shedding two wear and appearing to grab the final o\point
Burnett tries to follow Kennard's move through the middle but he ends up spinning

Monday is the Labor Day holiday in the U.S. If anyone can't get a turn in by then let me
know and I'll extend the deadline to Wednesday.

Next deadline: turn 34 due Monday, September 5 at 4pm EDT/8pm UTC

And that's a wrap. Good race, as always. Contrats to Justin

Turn 34 summary:
Welage has the advantage on the final move and secures the last G.P. point
Kennard follows in 11th
Burnett gets righted and heads for the finish (he'll get there on turn 36)

That's it for Brands Hatch. No deadline has been set for Watkins Glen as we
are the first to finish. Enjoy the break. You may send W.G. builds any time.
I will inform everyone once an actual schedule is determined. Enjoy your break.
