A tale of two races...

Turn 16 Summary

In the lead group...

Smith taps the brakes to 80 and burns an additional wear in the 60's at the crossover. Harley also slows to 80 and, with wear already paid, flies through the 40 spot to challenge the #8.

Costa brakes to 80 and hangs himself in the 60's, costing a wear. Milbourn goes middle lane at 80 before striking two wear in the 40 spot to clear.

... while in the chase pack...

Schipper drops the hammer to 180 with 1s (modified 8) and is in lap 2. Harrington takes what the engine can give at 140.

Bernhardt slams the gas pedal to 180 and denies the slip to the #32. Not to be outdone, Choi grabs the dice cup and pushes the engine to 180 (natural 8/5). He finds a hole to take inside position - Harrington may get his slip after all.

Marshall drops the hammer with his robust power plant to 180 and tucks in on the black machine. Dygert is able to keep the pace at 140 and the coveted double bonus.

... and finally...

Hoyt finishes out the Hairpin at 120, losing pace but with plenty of clean air.

The dice go bad and wear is getting scarce in the front.

Turn 21 Summary

Harley really wants the line and he will pay for it. He plots 140 then late brakes with 1w and a brake check (natural 10). A crunch and some smoke tell the story. Russ will have to find a way to finish the 2nd half of the race w/ limited braking power. He spends two wear on the Berjaya line and is in first place. There's that!

Milbourn, at 100, burns two wear on the outer rail. Smith plots 100 but, with limited choices, late brakes with a wear to 80 and runs the Berjaya line for another.

Costa cruises through Klia on the line at 120. Schipper grabs the Klia line at 160.

Choi pulls to the inside of the #1 at 160. Harrington tucks in on the Miller Lite Ford at 140.

Dygert pulls alongside the #32 at 140 and the bonus. Bernhardt tries to play catch-up at 140.

Marshall pushes the engine to 100 (natural 5). Hoyt is pushed to the outer rail in the bend at 140.
