One failed start leads to some quick maneuvering in the back.

Turn 1 Summary

Smith and Rund trade paint down the straight as they both push the start to 120. Smith puts his last skill in (modified 5) while Costa tosses in two (modified 3).

Harley, a little leery of the dice gods, puts in a big chip to hit 80 (modified 2). Hoyt also goes for 80 but with no skill applied, he comes up boxcars (natural 12). That's a stall on the track with a max speed of 60 next turn.

Harrington pumps two skill into the dice cup to go 40 (modified 6). Choi eases out at 20 and is inside of the inert blue machine.

Milbourn tempts fate at 120 and leaves the last skill chit in his pocket (natural 6). Costa puts one green chip on the table for his 120 (modified 8) and the engine complies... barely. They both skirt some slower cars and move up in the pack.

The remainder of the field leaves the dice cup alone and come out at 20 each to form a block of back-markers.

Turn 2 Deadline: Monday, February 21st @ 7 a.m. EST (12 noon UTC)

A catastrophe in the early going!

Turn 2 Summary

Smith goes into the Pangkor Laut chicane 80's at 120 and sheds two wear. Rund dives into the 60's at 120 with two wear and a chance roll (natural 10). Presumably he intended to put skill on the roll but did not specify its use.

Note: Redscape RM's, in league play, may not request plot clarifications or assume what is not in the plot. Default rules do not come into play as this was a planned dice roll. Sorry, Rob, but you're sitting this one out.

Harley runs the outer rail in the chicane at 140 for a wear. He rolls on the crash avoidance table with modifiers of -1 (three-wide section) and -2 (ending 0-2 spaces past crash). Redscape defaults also call for max skill, -2 in this case. Russ makes it through the crash site with a zero on the roll.

Milbourn plots 140 before late braking to 120 with wear. He then burns two more in the 80's. Costa pulls up in the middle lane at 100.

Harrington advances down the straight at 100. Choi comes alongside at 120 after pushing the engine (natural 7). Hoyt gets the engine started again and pulls into traffic at 60.

Schipper pushes the engine with 1s (modified 9) and is at 100. Bernhardt keeps up by also pushing with 2 skill for his roll (modified 7).

Dygert wants to go 100, as well, and pushes with 2s (modified 2). Marshall tucks in at 80.

Turn 3 Deadline: Wednesday, February 23rd @ 7 a.m. EST (12 noon UTC)

The debris is cleared and the race goes on...

Turn 3 Summary

Smith continues through the 80's at 120, wear already paid.

Harley drops to 100 then late brakes even more (1w) to 80 and ends in the 60's. Milbourn rides the 80's at 120 and is fortunate to find an open lane.

Costa, at 100, clears the chicane for two wear via the 60/80 combination.

Harrington dives into the chicane at 120 and burns two wear in the middle 80's. Choi takes his 120 outside for free.

Schipper has the initiative at 160 and clips two tires on the outer rail. Bernhardt is next, also at 160. Skip took his preferred route so he late brakes to 140 (1w) and drops another on the outside. Hoyt, at 120, picks the middle lane.

Dygert pulls to the inside of the blue machine at 120 and the bonus. Marshall brings up the rear at 140.

A three-wide out front and some traffic in the hairpin.

Turn 4 Summary

Smith grabs the Langkawi line at 120. Milbourn revs his mini-engine up to its 140 max.

Costa gets the initiative at 160 and pulls alongside the #18. Harley, at 140 and the bonus, creates a three-wide going into Langkawi.

Harrington is out of the hairpin at 120 via the outer lane. Choi slows to 60 and clutters up the middle exit row.

Schipper was looking to use that middle lane at 100 but... nope. He late brakes to 80 (1w) and uses the 40 spot w/ wear already paid. Bernhardt was also hoping for the middle lane and he brakes to 80 (1w) and into the 40, adding one more wear to the corner.

Dygert is able to find the exit row from the hairpin at 100 at a cost of two wear. Hoyt gets hung in the 80's for a wear. Marshall comes in behind the blue machine, also at 100 and a wear.

A lot of movement on the leader board today. Keep your eyes on the GP points totals - the green numbers advance to C3 next season.
