The grid is set. Bidding was competitive with no real bargains to be had. Please double check your resources for accuracy.

Turn 1 deadline is Monday, February 23rd @ 7 a.m. EST (12 noon UTC)

Personal Defaults: https://forms.gle/ps4oMVBexsqNQaUU7
These must be filled out for each race. I will not use previous versions.

I will update Grand Prix points next turn. The top four drivers have their total point values in green.

Mater is on stand-by because not everyone will cross the finish line :no:

Drive fast, take chances, & good luck!

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

Turn 1 Summary

Row 1: Harley gets initiative at 100 and hugs the outside towards Copse. Marshall pushes to 80 with 2s (modified 10) but, alas, the dice are not friendly and he mis-shifts. He'll go 40.

Row 2: Bernhardt tucks in on the race leader at 100. Moratto pulls alongside the stuttering yellow machine at 60.

Row 3: Koerber tosses 2s at the push to 120 (modified 7). He maneuvers around some traffic and sits with the leaders. McConchie slides in behind the #22 at 60.

Row 4: MacDonald and Blanchett move ahead at 60 each. No drama here.

Row 5: Schultz pushes 120 with 2s (modified 7) and is lucky to find a space on the outside. We're three-wide in front of Copse. Kay eases forward at 20.

Row 6: Hoyt pulls into the exhaust of the Kroger Chevy at 20. Moore has no choice but to stick to the outside, also at 20.

Turn 2 Deadline: Wednesday, January 25th @ 7 a.m. EST (12 noon UTC)

You got to love 180 cars on the track!

Turn 3 Summary

Harley pushes the engine to 180 with 1s (modified 7) then late brakes with 1s (modified 7) before hitting the Becketts line for 2 wear. Koerber is next at 160 - he flies into Becketts and drops 2 wear as he gets into the 120's.

Last out of the three-wide is Bernhardt, who wisely plots 140 to pick up the line. Schultz grabs the Becketts line at 160.

Moratto drops the hammer to 180 and tucks in on the bumper of the #15 Chevy.

McConchie gets the initiative out of the 2nd three-wide at 180. He burns 2 wear on the red line. Marshall goes next at 160, shedding a wear on the green line. Blanchett clips 2 tires at 140 on the inner rail and picks up a bumper.

I don't think MacDonald expected to get the double slip from his countryman but he sure did! He gets dinged for a wear on the green line at 160 and moves into the top half of the leaderboard with the double bonus.

Moore rounds Copse on the green at 160 for a wear. Kay is into Copse at 140 for free. Hoyt, also at 140, uses the bonus to enter Copse on the red line.

Mandatory drug testing will begin this week...

Turn 7 Summary

Bernhardt gets the initiative at 120. He sheds two wear in the Vale 80's and pulls alongside the race leader. Koerber is next, also at 120. With no place to go, he late brakes to 100 (1w) and burns a 2nd wear in the Vale 80's.

Last out of the three-wide is Moratto at 80. He drops a wear in the 60 and clears. Schultz, at 100, will get hung in Vale on the outside. That's one wear for the #15.

MacDonald, at 100, specifically requests the 60 for two wear. With no mention of the racing line, that's what he does.

McConchie, at 100, specifically requests the outside lane. Will and Donald must've been hitting the Scotch whiskey hard this weekend.

Marshall is happy to set up Vale on the line at 100.

Moore burns a wear at 140 on the Stowe line and requests inside with no chance for the Vale line. Apparently, he's been hanging out with our Scotsmen. Kay follows the #3 at 140, clipping a tire on the line.

Turn 9 Summary

Harley pulls up to Village on the inside at 120. Bernhardt, at 140, claims the line.

Moratto eases his way towards Village at 140 and sets up the line. Koerber hits the gas and, at 160, finds a hole to move into 3rd.

MacDonald runs the green line at 160 before sliding over to the inner rail. Schultz takes green and gets the bonus at 140.

Marshall clears Abbey on the green line at 140.

Blanchett drops the hammer to 180! He puts 2s on each engine check (modified 5/4 on acc/top) but has to settle for the red line for a wear with the Pennzoil machine in the way. McConchie tosses a couple of skill chits on his engine check to hit 160 (modified 5). He finds room on the green line for free.

Moore easily gets to 160 with the robust powerplant and grabs the green line into Abbey. Kay rolls out of Vale at 160. Is that a look of surprise when the double slip whips him into Abbey on the outer rail?

Hoyt sheds two wear on the Vale line while enjoying some clean air.

Hoyt fires his way through Abbey at 160 on the green line. Are you sure you want to be this close to that mass of metal at Village?
