Drivers,

We are going with eleven. Matthias has not responded to any communications and is removed from the race.

As for builds, there is only one duplicate (Moratto & MacDonald). All others are unique. The six cars with 100 start speed might make pole bidding interesting!

Start bid deadline: Wednesday, June 15th @ 7 a.m. EST (11 a.m. UTC)

Pole bids can be in a combination of wear (1 point) and skill (1/2 point). Ties are broken with a d100 die for highest roll. If no bid is received, it is assumed to be a bid of zero.

The grid is set...

There were quite a few ties to break on the grid, the most meaningful one at the front. Harley runs away with the pole while Schultz edges out Hoyt for the 2nd spot on the front row.

The remaining ties also determined row placement. MacDonald beats out Schipper for row 3, McConchie edges Moratto for row 4, and Marshall gets row 5 over Moore, left in the rear by himself.

For those newer to the game, you can push your start by 20 mph. It's one of the tougher rolls so skill is recommended.

Turn 1 Deadline: Friday, June 17th @ 7 a.m. EST (11 a.m. UTC)

GENTLEMEN, START YOUR ENGINES!

Boogity, boogity, boogity, let's go racing boys!

The lights go out and the cars are off...

Turn 1 Summary
The front row pushes: Harley drops a big chip on the roll (modified 6) and careens around the Paddock Hill Bend at 120 for two wear. Schultz puts in 2s (modified 3) for 120 and tosses in a wear for the line.

Row two: Hoyt runs the racing line for free at 100. Bernhardt clips a tire at 100 in the 80 spot for third.

Dropping from three lanes to two in traffic is, as our fellow driver Brad B. likes to say, like 'stuffing ten pounds of shit into a five pound bag.'

Several things to note...

1. Sheene's Curve switches inside/outside halfway through. Russ is on the innermost lane that he could get to.

2. David could have increased speed from 100 to 120 this turn. You may only increase speed in a corner if, in the first space entered, you do not incur additional wear cost. He had already paid one wear by virtue of traveling through the 80 at 100 on the previous turn. He would have been free to plot 120 this turn given the speed limit of 100 in the remainder of the corner.

3. I think the 80 may have been a mis-plot from David but Redscape RM's are prohibited from making suggestions or asking for clarifications. We go with what you send.

I'm not trying to pick on David here but there are some novices in the field and it seems appropriate to make rules comments, ex-post to the adjudication, of course.

Turn 7 Summary

Harley is through Westfield at 140 and is in Sheene's Curve.

Schultz clears Westfield at 140. Hoyt, also at 140, catches the bumper on the #15.

Bernhardt finishes out Hawthorns at 120.

McConchie gets the initiative at 140. He burns a wear in Hawthorns before pulling alongside the #43. Marshall runs the Hawthorns 120's for free on the outer rail.

MacDonald runs the racing line at 140 for a wear and comes alongside the Pennzoil in the Derek Minter Straight.

Schipper clips a tire at 140 on the Hawthorns line. Moratto sets up Hawthorns on the line at 120, refusing the slip.

Blanchett takes the inside position on the green and black machine. Moore slows to 80 as he exits Surtees and down Pilgrims Drop.
