The hairpin causes a lot of hard braking but things get sorted out

Turn 14 summary:
Benham gets off the hairpin at 140 and starts lap 2
Brown maintains around the middle lane and moves to the inside
Incorpora finishes the racing line at 120 and pulls even with the yellow machine
Kennard's inside position gives him the intiative at 100 shedding two wear on the inside of the corner

Blizzard runs the line through the hairpin at 100 dropping one wear
Ingraham follows and clears the corner also at 100 for one wear
Haskell gets the jump at 140 then trusts his brakes to put himself on the line at 120 two wear lighter
Beckman at 120 is forced into the outside lane at a two wear cost in the 80

Mossman has no room for his 120 move so he late brakes onto the line knocking off one wear
Kellison agressivly approaches the hairpin on the line at 160
Baker closes a length with his big engine screaming

Next deadline: turn 15 due Wednesday, March 23 at 4pm EDT/8pm UTC

The chase pack is keeping the leader in sight

Turn 15 summary:
Benham reaches Pangkor Laut on the inside at 140
Brown hits top speed and makes up one length
Incorpora at 140 falls in behind the yellow machine
Kennard pushes to 160 and joins the short line heading for the chicane

Blizzard adds to the queue at 160
Ingraham grabs high gear and uses the slip to pull alongside Blizzard
Haskell finishes the hairpin line at 120 and moves outside to shake the slip
Beckman through the rest of the 80s at 120 is wise to that move and follows to the outside

Mossman maintains 100 for the remainder of the racing line but did not specify a finish lane
Kellison sheds one wear around the hairpin racing line
Baker follows at 120 to clear the corner on the line at a cost of two wear

Note:I'm having internet issues so I sent this while it was on since I had all moves.

A couple of challenges and the leaders tires continue to go away

Turn 24 summary:
Brown continues to spend wear, dropping two on the Sunway Lagoon line at 120
Incorpora bides his time at 120 through turn 12
Haskell punches off Kenyir Lake at 160 and challenges for P2
Blizzard is locked at 120 to finish the Kenyir 100s

Kennard runs the Kenyir line at 100 for free
Ingraham follows on across the line also at 100
Mossman sheds two wear through the 80 at 120 and picks up two spots

Beckman stays on the wing of the blue machine at 100 around the racing line
Baker catches the chase pack after turning in one wear on the line at 120
Kellison slows to 60 around the Berjaya line for free

So far there are three drivers not returning for season 9. I haven't heard from
Incorpora or Baker yet. But this convolutes the points since Brown (who is not returning)
is challenging for a promotion spot and there will only be one relegation.
Assuming the two above will be returning this is the situation:
For promotion:
If Brown does pass Haskell in points (frankly, an unlikely scenario as Haskell would have
to lose a position and he has plenty of wear, as long as he finishes) then the top
four will be promoted as usual. If Brown does manage to pass Haskell in points, then
Haskell will still get promoted. This is assuming Ingraham does not catch either.
For relegation:
Orlandi and Kellison will not be back, so Baker is currently in the relegation position.
He would have to pass Benham in points to avoid that. (Benham would have the tie-
breaker with his P4 finish in the first race) That means Baker would have to pick up at
least three positions. A definite possibility given his track position and wear. If he
does so, Benham would be relegated assuming Kennard does not lose any positions. If Kennard
were to lose at least one spot, again Benham would have the tie-breaker and Kennard
would be relegated.
And, of course, all this is based on all cars running finish the race.

A pass for P2 while the majority of the pack negotiates the turn 12/Sunway Lagoon complex

Turn 25 summary:
Brown exits Sunway hard on the gas at 160
Haskell dives into Sunway at 120 shedding two wear and finishing inside
Incorpora drops one wear on the line but is denied the slip opportunity next turn
Blizzard runs the turn 12 line at 120 then attacks Sunway Lagoon dropping two wear

Kennard, Mossman, Ingraham, Beckman and Baker all take the turn 12 line at 120 for free
Kellison clears Kenyir Lake on the line at 100 conserving his wear

Note: I'll try to keep the points chart updated. The lighter red is the one driver that
will be relegated. The darker red are the drivers that will not be returning next season.
