First interval activity:
Schulz and Brandt make no adjustments so maintain the front row
Benham from Start Speed to Top Speed
Beckman from Start Speed to Top Speed
Peeples from Start Speed to Wear
Ling from Start Speed to Acceleration

The result is that the start grid is unchanged.

All cars are moving at 40mph
Turn 17 is based on that speed plus acceleration
You may roll dice to increase your acceleration
Slips will be allowed (subject to normal conditions)
Remember slips must be requested, they are not automatic

Next deadline: turn 17 due Friday, July 16 at 4pm EDT/8pm UTC

More hard braking but so far the dice gods are proving to be benevolent

Turn 25 results:
Benham jumps out at 140 then brakes hard into Mobil on the line then drops two wear in Sachs
Beckman takes the Mobil 120s at speed and starts the line behind Benham
Peeples also punches out to 140 then hits the brakes moving inside for P2

Ling at 120 has no choice but to run the Mobil 120s
Schulz has room to take the Mobil line at 120 for free
Brandt anticipates the block doing 100 through the inside of Mobil

Next deadline: turn 26 due Friday, August 6 at 4pm EDT/8pm UTC

Lap 2 finishes with an interesting point chart

Turn 28 summary:
Benham, Schulz and Ling all end up at the entrance to Nordkurve, Ling using a slip
Beckman appears to be in P4. The officials are reviewing the video.
Brandt finishes the final corner at 100
Peeples recovers from his spin at 60

Turn 29 summary:
Brandt crosses the start/finish line at 140
Peeples can't catch the yellow machine so he crosses at 120

Also attached is the initial starting grid for lap 3, Baku.
The P3-P5 tie was broken by regular season points:
Peeples:65, Schulz:58, Beckman:44
And then the field was inverted per the dice roll.
