Twonky (+ Reverse Gears), sponsored by Chris
Trundle (+ Abort Switch), backed by James
Spin (I think, + Radio Control), endorsed by Joe
Island and Exchange, with one flag each
Twonky surged strong out of the gate, easily accumulating a commanding lead. He tagged the first flag with Trundle a bit behind, and the two of them exchanged a bit of laser fire.
After Trundle achieved the first flag, Spin was hot on his tail and snagged him with the Remote Control. Trundle would have none of that, and clicked his Abort Switch, which promptly cast him plummeting off the edge of the factory floor.
Twonky, making his way to the finish flag, caught some crippling laser fire, and opted to shut down, allowing Trundle to catch up and Spin to surpass. After 1 hour of play, Spin claimed victory with Twonky and Trundle 6 and 7 spaces from the flag, respectively.
