Questions:

When will Fabio burn off that last precious tread on his almost spent tires?
Will Chris shake his fist at Brad or just run him over?
Where will Rando find room to pass the traffic in front of him?
Is there enough race left for John & Will to pass a few more cars?

Turn 27 Summary
Mike takes the Campsa line for free at 100. Denied the line, Fabio takes the Campsa 100's for free and tucks in for the slip on Mike. Tim plots 100 and grabs the Campsa line. Kal finishes the SEAT 80's at speed and chooses the outside lane. Brad burns off his last wear in the SEAT 60 and pulls inside of Kal at 80. Chris burns off some speed in the SEAT 80's at 100 for a wear and grabs Brad's tail. Rando notches a wear at 100 in the SEAT 80's. John uses a wear in the Repsol 100's at 120. Todd drops a wear at 120 on the Resol line and enters the SEAT 80's. He burns his last wear and roll on the chance table with 1 sp (modified 5). Good to go. Will takes the Repsol line for 2 wear at 140. DC drops 2 wear (Correction - 1 wear only. The chart is correct) on the ELF 120's.

A new leader at the most important part of the race. This race is yours Fabio.

There may be a correction to DC, though of small relevance. His dice roll is still out there in the nethers of the internet.

Turn 30 Summary
Fabio takes the Europcar line at 80 for free. Mike finishes the Banc Sabadell line and follows Fabio on the Europcar line at 80. Chris knocks down 2 wear in the La Caixa 80's at 120 and hits the Banc line for another wear and a roll on the chance table (2 SP applied, modified 3). Brad takes the La Caixa 60 at 80 for a roll on the chance table with 2 SP (modified 8), resulting in a spin. Tim skirts the spin, using the La Caixa 80's for free. He grabs the Banc line. At 120, Rando drops 2 wear in the La Caixa 80's followed by another 2 wear in the Banc 80's. Kal goes around the spinning Brad in the La Caixa 80's and grabs Tim's tail on the Banc line. Todd pulls up to La Caixa in the middle lane at 80. John goes inside of Todd at 120. Will makes it three wide going into La Caixa at 140. DC takes the 80's in SEAT at +20 for a roll on the chance table with 2 SP (dice roll TBD).

Just got the dice roll for DC. Spin. I'll fix the track in a bit - I also need to adjust Brad's speed down to 0.

DC's roll was a modified 8. The track has been updated.

Rando is calling for a review of his plot. He believes he should be on the Banc 60 (with subsequent dice roll). I will be sending the plot to Doug as an objective third party judge on the issue.

Stay tuned...

I taught the girls (6 & 8) how to play Speed Circuit this evening.

One lap at Watkins Glen. I pushed my start speed, rolled a 6 (old AH rules, single die), and damaged my engine. I was running behind from the beginning. My bad luck continued with the dice on the top speed table a few turns later. The eldest picked it up pretty quick and ran the course in record time, taking the checkered flag. The youngest made a few errors, allowing me to catch up. We were down to the last corner when she rolled on the chance table. 1-3 and she takes 2nd place but the dice came up 4. Spin! Mean old daddy slipped by for 2nd place.

Great time & good practice for counting by 20's!

Stay tuned...

Doug was able to see both sides so basically said he’d go with the initial ruling. Kind of like replay, I guess - go with the call on the field barring clear evidence to the contrary.

Forgot to deduct my wear. Leaves me with 2 for the final corner. Hmmm -- what should I plot?

Ooops!

I misread Kal's plot and put him on the outside. He should be inside with John on the outside.

Fixed (more or less).

Sorry for the delay... another dice roll went missing for a bit. I did figure out that I can have the dice rolls displayed as well as emailed so I shouldn't have these problems in the future.

Five more cars roll across the finish line...

Turn 33 Summary
Rando hits the gas at 180 and uses his 3 SP chit to avoid the top speed dice roll, finishing 3rd.. Chris follows at 140 with the double slip, passing the line just after Rando for 4th place. Tim rolls the dice on the acceleration table to go 140 (naked 9) and finishes in 5th place. John tests his top speed at 180 but the dice do him no favors (naked 11). He pulls up next to Tim but must accept 6th place. At 120, Kal grabs the bonus from Tim to cross the finish line in 7th. Will drops his last wear in New Holland and at +40 must also roll on the chance table using his big 3 SP chit (modified 2). Brad takes New Holland for free at 80. Todd gets the freebie on the Europcar line and New Holland at 80.

Three cars still on the track with a few dice rolls sure to come. Will, Brad, & Todd - I will adjudicate the last turn when you submit your plots. I may not be able to post a track until Monday but we can at least find out who grabbed 9th!

Turn 34 Deadline: Monday, November 24th @ 12 noon EST (5 p.m. GMT)

If you have some thoughts on the race, please post them in the thread I created for just that purpose. I'll be getting to mine tonight.
