Galder lets the other Mogarian pass and then speedily persues him. He takes the same route. He then uses another boost to get ahead of him.

(Hey, Ush, how come it says I exploded in the Dark-Side thread?)

Sorry Gald, your opponent was Quadro, not Mah! Distracted, you have to break hard to avoid Quadro, and lose your rhythm. He blocks you.

But Mah, you and Boring and Orthodox skillfully slip past!

Up front, Dodgy keeps up the pace but now a part of his pod is sparking and giving off puffs of smoke. Looks like the strain is starting to show on his pod!

Speedy skids a little, to his own irritation, but his sheer speed keeps him going fast through the section. He tries to catch Dodgy before the Narrows... but Dodgy JUST edges in ahead and the chance to overtake is lost!

The the slow pods at the back lumber forwards, doing better than they did at the start, but not much.

POSITIONS AND SCORES

1st: Dodgy (28)
2nd: Speedy (27)
3rd: Mah (22)
4th: Orthodox (22)
5th: Boring (22)
6th: Quadro (20)
7th: Galder (20)
8th: Bashy (17)
9th: Twisty (16)

NOW ENTERING: The Narrows (lap 2)

Dodgy sheds debris all over as a part of his pod bursts as he enters the Narrows. A slip-up by the official means the maintenance bots come out early! The Narrows become filled with solid repair bots all over the place! This is going to be harsh!

Your plans, please. No need for anyone to fret, or to be complacent, there is not much in it!

Galder shouts angrily and speeds up. He turns through the Narrows, trying to avoid the annoyance of the salvage bots. Thanks for dying Dodgy... thinks Galder as he watches the Triffian's pod smoke.

Hmm...shouldn't he be falling back in the ranks then? I know I would if my pod was a wreck...

The bots in the..narrow narrows is an annoyance, but Mah slides and dodges past them on the relative straight track

His pod isn't a wreck! It's just on fire... a little.

Ok, pretty straight going for everyone at this bit. The bots are the most trouble for Galder and Dodgy, who is trying to keep his pod together, let alone dodge the damn things!

Everyone shoots quickly through the narrows and the pack is becoming VERY tight indeed! It's a great race!

POSITIONS AND SCORES

1st: Dodgy (32)
2nd: Speedy (32)
3rd: Mah (26)
4th: Orthodox (26)
5th: Boring (25)
6th: Quadro (25)
7th: Galder (25)
8th: Bashy (20)
9th: Twisty (20)

Ok, now, as you know, no-one can overtake... BUT... anyone who COULD have overtaken, now gets a chance to try and back-bash the guy in front!

Basically, there are three things that can happen when this does.

1. You will send the other guy out of control for the next section
2. You will scratch some paintwork
3. You will send YOURSELF out of control for the next section.

Now, being out of control in the Twists is very bad for anyone without good traction!

The following people can bash:

Twisty can try and bash Bashy (not going to happen!)
Orthodox can try and bash Mah
Galder can try and bash Quadro (who has BAD traction... oooh!)
Speedy can try and bash Dodgy (but is too small)

So, Mah. Orthodox is comimng to ram you from behind, and your manoeuvrability is no good here! Any plans?

And Galder, if you want to try and shunt Quadro, just say so...

BTW, Galder, Takuan is babbling something at you about taking it slow around some corner...

"Alright, alright, Takuan," Galder says through the comlink. He decides not to bash Quadro and just tries to keep behind him. Damn, I wish I had worked on the traction...

(Speaking of that, I never got the chance because I was gone. Doesn't seem fair...)

Odd that you would rather be in last place, which is where you would be right now without that speed...

The point is that if you do it well you will come out of it fine! It is ONE of those three things that happens!

(Oh, just one of them...I thought it was all three!)

Galder speeds up and rams Quadro's cockpit. "Eat this, slimeball!" he says through the synthesizers.

slow down and position myself behind him, to try and pass him in the next section perhaps?

No good, Mah, you can't get behind him any more than he can get in front, in the Narrows! Orthodox shunts heavly into you... but you both keep control.

Must be said, Galder, the synthisiser makes that sound rather flat and unthreatening... but it is scarier still when you shunt into Quadro at JUST the right place! As you guys enter the Twists he is wobbling out all over the place.! Good shot sir!

NOW ENTERING: The Twists, lap 2.

Halfway point has been reached! Keep it up, guys! Your plans, please.

(Did I pass him or was he spinning around in front of me?)

Galder slows a bit and turns hard on each turn. He angles hard around each turn.

Mah glides through the turns, turning and breaking. He tries to come closer to the leading duo.

You CAN'T pass in the Narrows, Galder!

Things are now getting tense and the adrenaline is flowing. You ty and get into the rhythms of the tight turns that pull nasty g-forces on your frail bodies. Pods zip past you as you turn, sometimes looking as if right next to you and sometimes way, way away, the turns obscuring the true distance.

Quadro wobbles through one turn, barely scrapes a second. He should slow down to get control but refuses to lose a place. It costs him. One of his four engines- the top left- catches a corner dead on. It wrenches free of his pod and explodes, and Quadro's pod collapses onto the ground and spins to a halt.

At the reat, Twisty takes his chance to manoeuvre past Bashy... but he muffs it. Screaming with glee, Bashy gives him a full-on side-shunt, and Twisty flails out of control and plougs head on into a wall. His pad vaporises.

Galder, the pods in front of you are just plain better in these sections, but with Quadro gone the field in front of you is thinning... Mah, you still do not take this section as well as you wanted but you are shaving off the gap between you and Speedy... you have pulled clear of the other Mogarian but the two other dull racers are still right with you!

POSITIONS AND SCORES

1st: Dodgy (36)
2nd: Speedy (34)
3rd: Mah (30)
4th: Orthodox (30)
5th: Boring (30)
6th: Galder (27)
7th: Bashy (25)

No fighting to be done, on we go!

NOW ENTERING: The Lake, lap 2.

Your plans please.

Galder sees he is loosing quite drastically. He maintains a steady speed, but always prepares to use the brakes whenever necessary. He zips around on the slippery lake and through the green mists, trying to keep his distance from Bashy and the walls of the track, and trying to cut down the distance between him and the other racers in front of him.

He watches as Quadro flunks it and spins along on the ground behind him. Sucker...
