The field stretches down Mistral as there is a roar from the crowd as they see smoke coming from one of the cars!

Turn 35 is due Wendesday January 10th at 11pm Eastern. At this time we are back on normal MWF schedule.

Rob keeping it at his max speed of 180 and pounds pavement!

Mario does his best to keep up with Rob as he matches speed as he races down the straight.

Pepe attempt to pull the slingshot as he follows behind Mario, pushing his engine to its max as he attempts 180. The car revs high and reaches for it's limits, but Pepe unfortunently hears a grinding as something snaps, and his engine drops in revs! The speed lost, he can only pull aside Mario down the straight off the slip. (Acc Modified 5, Top Modified 11, Fail TOP. -20 Top)

Chris pushes his engine to it's top speed of 200 to which his car answers (Modified 8) and pulls in behind Mario

Tony piggy backs off Chris at 140 and does his best to pound pavement, finding himself just out of reach of the next slip.

Claudio tries to do the same, but at 160 find himself going too fast, and ends up in his own no mans land out of reach of Tony.

Chris Brandt does his best to catch up with the field as he exits Saint-Beaume at 160.

Christina completed Saint-Beaume though the inside at 100

Jack follows Christina through Saint-Beaume though the inside at 80.

Joshua seems to have another hiccup and runs Saint-Beaume around the outside at 80(NPR)

Rob runs down the line to setup for Signes as most of the field continues to pound pavement down Mistral.

Rob eases it up to the corner at 16, gliding outside to inside to stay on the proper apex for Signes.

Mario continues down the straight at 180 as he tries to keep the field at bay and keep up with Rob.

Pepe struggles a bit with his setup as he pushes his car down Mistral at 140, the most he can get out of his engine.(NPR).

Tony pulls up to full speed as the races down Mistral at 160. He is met from the outside by Claudio is races down to him at 200!

Chris Brandt does his best to keep up with the field as he pushes his engine to 180, and his engine answers (Top Mod 6)

Christina does her best to keep up with the field as she pushes her engine for 180, and the engine also responds (Acc Mod 5)

Jack exit's Saint-Beaume and flies down Mistral at his 160.

Regathering himself, Joshua completes Saint-Beaume at 100.

There are roars and cries from the crowd as suddenly it looks like the leader tried to take too much going into Beausset and is seen flying through the rumble strips off track!

Turn 38 is due Wendesday at 11pm Eastern

Knowing that Chris and Mario were gaining on him, Rob decided to take a chance, and pushes into Beausset at 100. Unfortunently, his luck at Rouen seems to carry on to here as when he tries to force it into the corner, he take it too tight, and bounces off the curb! The leader tries to correct but it's too late as the car flies off track and goes boucing over the rough stripes on the outer side of the corner, before skidding to a stop. A rattled Car and blown tires, Rob can only watch the others run to the finish as his race is now over. (Chance Roll 10, Crash!)

Chris Brown completes Singes at 140 and watches Rob loose it as he knows soon enough he will be P1!

Mario also completes the corner at 140 and pulls in behind Chris Brown.

Slowing to 140, Claudio keeps to the outside, and tries to block the closing Apex of Singes for thoes behind him.

Pepe seems to have problems agian, and ends up surrendering the line to go around the outside at 140.(NPR)

Seeing the block Tony tries to surrender the line and force his car inside, but he over corrects and the car fishtails in the corner! (Chance Mod 9. Spin!) (Cr Speed is now 0, you may accel from 40 next turn)

Navigating around Tony's spin, Chris Brandt runs Signes through the middle at 160.

Christina keeps it steady as she goes as she picks up the apex path for Signes at 180.

Jack not wanting to stay where he is, keeps the engine pumping and stressed as he keeps it redlined at 220 (Top R Mod 5), pulling to the inside of Christina, off line.

Joshua red lines it as well at 220 and his car answers (Top R Mod 3)

Mario finishes Beausset at 100 and sets up for Bendor on the inside. He is met on the outside by Claudio who had finished the corner at 120.

Pepe seems to have issues with his car agian but it able to keep it on track as he does his best to setup for Bendor at 120(NPR)

Jack decides to conserve his tires for now and takes the outer line into Beausset at 100.

And the Crowd Roars as Chris Brown Crosses the finishing line to win Castellet! Behind him, there is a battle for 3rd as the field is three abreast leaving Virage Du Pont!

RM Notes: Congrats to Chris and thanks all for the excellent race! As for close on what may be the penultimate turn, a couple things.

1. As by Monday's turn most cars will be finished in the race, I am going to ask the two drivers who may still be in contention of position (Christina and Jack) to please submit me their next two turns in the email, so as I can close it out on Monday.

2. I will ask all drivers to make sure you read the email from Mike, there are some important notes in the email, including a change to NPR limits which will be in effect for Race 3.

Turn 43 is Due Monday January 29th at 11pm Eastern

Blasting down the straight with all his engines might (ACC R 9), Chris Brown goes 180 as flys by the checked flag for the Win!

Mario rounds Virage Du Pont at 120 and rolls down the straight with the finish line in sight for a almost garunteed second.

Claudio on his bald tires rounds Virage around the edge at 80, and is met to the outside by Pepe and Chris Brandt, who moves 100 and 120 respectively. The three roll twoards the line in what is to be a drag race for 3rd!

Jack and Christina exit Bendor at 120 and shifting sides through the corners, both setup at the lip of Virage for a final fight for 6th!

Joshua hasn't seemed to have regathered himself, but is able to safely clear the corner at 100.(NPR)

So in processing the turn, I made a major error. The three wide on the front straight would not work if all three drivers would go outside, due to the furthest inside they could move after the turn is middle. Due to this, I have corrected the graphic:

1.Claudio is in the middle and Pepe is on the outside.
2.Chris Brandt, now blocked, is forced to make a choice: Late Break or Chance it. In this email, his second option was to chance it use his 3s chip.

Due to Chris Brandt ordering the chance option, I have rolled it(cced to the other 2 drivers), and he rolled a 7(Modified to a 4 with the chip), and successfully makes the corner and goes ahead one additional space.

Correct graphic is attached. Deadline for final turn is due Tuesday.
