Kennington shifts to the 60s to finish the corner

The battle for P2 heats up with some aggressive moves

Turn 34 summary:

Swaine conserves his tires by swinging to the outside of Langkawi at 120
Polcen hits the gas hard but then has to brake hard before the corner
Peeples sees the 120s blocked, he stands on the brakes and trusts his tires through the racing line

Kennington starts the line into Langkawi at 160
Incorpora moves the inside at 160 to take over P4 for now
Dygert comes off the chicane at 140 hugging the inside

Note: The math is easy at this point. Between Swaine, Peeples, Polcen and Incorpora, if one of them wins
the lap they are the champion. If Kennington wins the lap he would be the champion if neither Swaine nor
Peeples finishes second. If one of them does they are the champion. Unfortunately Dygert is mathematically
eliminated from the championship, but could still move up in the standings.

Next deadline: turn 35 due Monday, November 7 at 4pm EST/9pm UTC

Wear is pretty even, who will gamble with dice in the final half-lap?

Turn 35 summary:

Swaine pushes his engine to 180 to try to gap Peeples. It holds, but barely
Peeples, however, also pushes to 180 to stay right behind the leader
Polcen finishes the 120s at 160 wear paid but it's not enough to keep up with Peeples

Kennington drops one wear around the 120s at 140 to reclaim P4
Incorpora chooses the middle lane at 120 shedding two wear
Dygert is one wear lighter after taking the Langkawi line at 100

Next deadline: turn 36 due Wedmesday, November 9 at 4pm EST/9pm UTC

A convincing win and a spin at the back solidifies all remaining positions

Turn 44 summary:

Swaine takes the lap and the championship!
Polcen secures P2 for both the lap and the standings
Incorpora depends on his bald tires around the Hairpin but they fail him and around he goes

Kennington also trusts his tires but they keep him on the line all the way around
Dygert slows to 80 not pushing anything but picks up a spot for the lap with the black car's spin

Gentlemen, there are no more passes possible as Dygert can maintain his 80 and Incorpora can only
restart at 60. I want to thank you all for participating and congratulate Swaine on his win.
There is a post-race comments forum up for anyone that wishes to post their thoughts on this unique
competition. I expect to get certificates out tomorrow.
