Incorpora exits corner 16 at 140 for P3

Brown negotiates the last racing line at 80 for his last wear
Orlandi is hard on the brakes and boom! With no wear left, he spins
Ingraham avoids the spinning gray machine at 100 around the outside

Blizzard uses his last wear and skill to run the 60s at 100
Haskell i shard on the brakes to avoid the spinning gray race card
Kennard starts the line behind the commotion at 120

The dice gods shake up the P4-P6 finish

Turn 42 summary:
Brown chooses not to risk his damaged engine, it will cost him 2 positions
Ingraham pushes his top speed, thankfully having 2 skill left to use
Blizzard taxes his engine for both acceleration and top speed

Haskell rounds the Prost 60s at speed
Orlandi gets straightened out and follows the red race car also at 60
Kennard has no room for his 80 plot so he brakes to 60 and takes the outside

Next deadline: turn 43 due Friday, January 28 at 4pm EST/9pm UTC
