Turn 35:
Ales at 120 drops two wear on the Village 80s and another on The Loop line and into P1

NOTE: Let me know if you're coming back next season. You can tell me with your turn 36 move. I don't know
if it matters, but in the interest of full disclosure, it appears I will be driving in C2 next season and
therefore will be RM in C3. Will K. will likely be the C2 RM.

Nine dice rolls and three casualties

Turn 38:
Beckman sheds his last wear around the outside of Luffield at 100
Ales follows the leader around the corner keeping side-by-side-by-s
Kennington slows to 80 around the outside for free
Baker at 60 takes the inside route and back into P3 for now

Kubala hits the Luffield 80s at 120 for two wear then attempts a one skill blocked
forced pass vs. Kennington and fails. He loses one wear for a "4" in the dice roll
He has no wear to pay for the late brake and spins.

Swaine hits the outside of Luffield at 120 looking to force his way past Kubala
and Kennington. He gets through Kubala but not Kennington as he is blocking.
Since he has no remaining wear to brake he spins in the same lane as the forced pass attempt.

Brandt uses dice and one wear to get to 100mph as well taking the outside of
Brooklands but he's forced into the Luffield 80 with bald tires and a naked chance
roll which he fails and ends up in the kitty litter and out of the race

Ingraham moves into the outside 120 in Brooklands then late brakes to 100 using
two skill then hits the 60 in Luffield for two wear and barely passes
his crash avoidance roll (5+3-2 = 6/pass)

Puddifoot uses a naked roll to get to 100 and takes the outside around Brooklands
at no cost, avoiding the chaos in Luffield

Kennard tries to get down to 100 using dice after entering the outside 120 in Luffield
but his brakes grind and crunch. This is his second brake failure and he makes the
dreaded off-track excursion

Welage puts Wellington Straight behind him at 160
Burnett nurses his damaged engine to 120

DRIVERS: Please check your moves. This one was probably the most complex turn I've
ever adjudicated. Obviously I think I got it right, but you never know.

Next deadline: Turn 39 due Monday, April 10 at 4pm EDT/8pm UTC
