Sometimes personal defaults can cause trouble...

Turn 14 Summary

Bernhardt cruises into lap 2 at 140. Harley pulls alongside at 160 while maintaining access to the racing lines.

Moratto has the initiative at 160 and tucks in on the black machine. Schultz, at 140 and the bonus, takes the inside lane. Koerber, at 140, falls in behind the #15.

MacDonald at 160 and the bonus, makes it a three-wide going into Copse. Blanchett finishes Luffield at 120.

McConchie careens through Luffield at 100, knocking down two wear and attaches to the #39. Marshall slows to 80 and saves wear on the outer rail.

Kay, at 100, clips a tire on the outside.

Moore plots 120 then late brakes to 100. He sheds two wear on the inside and moves up the leaderboard. Hoyt also plotted 120... hmmm. Personal defaults have him roll chance with 1s (modified 8 = spin), and the car stops there. Yes, there would also have been a forced pass attempt!
