Engines pumping and thumping in time ...
Since we finished our first Gaslands race of the evening early, we had time for one more rally, this time with smaller teams: E. Winters Group's Frankenstein, Blues Brothers' Jake and Elwood, and Justice League's Batusi.
I was in Frankenstein, and as usual I tried to take advantage of that vehicles ram. I rolled a total of seven dice against the Batusi, but only scored one hit.
The performace car left us all in the dust, I spun out, and Elwood made it just through the first gate to to weapons hot. Jake, however, was just a smidge short of the line and couldn't shoot at me that gear.
Meanwhile, the Batusi launched a couple of remote-controlled cars that explode if they hit or get hit.
However, that didn't prevent Elwood from setting it on fire, which was enough on top of previous damage to wreck the Justice League car.
But it wasn't just the Batusi suffering from Elwood's flamethrower--Frankenstein didn't like fire either.
With one hull point left, the flaming monstrosity rammed the Blues Brother, taking both vehicles out.
Just Jake was left running, so the musical siblings won by default. And with that, we called it a night.
