Light Chariot Couldn't Be Caught

The Circus finals started with 5 Heavy, 4 Medium and 2 Light chariots. If history were any guide, the light chariots should have been chopped into dog food by that many heavy chariots in the first two turns. The light chariot driven by Adam Fry,the emus, was the prime target since his speed was the maximum possible 22 horse speed + 2 driver bonuses. Amazingly, there was not a single successful attack until turn 3 and they were only 1 hit against the rhinos and the pegasus teams. Naturally, by the 4th turn the emus were far ahead and pulled away from the field. The pack decided to catch the emus when they came around and in the meantime started attacking wheels and horses in an wave of violence. The dinosaurs chariot flipped, a pegasus was killed, a raptor was killed, and various other wounds were suffered by one and all. Three of the drivers managed to shoot themselves in the foot by jostling themselves when only straining by 1 or 2 over the safe speed. The emus were so fast, and the field had slowed so much, that the pack did not have to slow down for the emus to pass. On turn 14, the emus came to the final curve, with the lions, bears & santa claws lurking ahead of him. The 3 horse Pegasus team did 2 hits lowering the emu max speed to 22. This was the first and last damage that the emu team took before it crossed the finish line 3 turns later. The lions, bears, santa and the unicorns all had a respectable speed and all 4 horses, What a novel concept, and continued around the track trying for 2nd place. The rest of the field were either dead, crippled, or so slow that they could not catch those new leaders. Those 4 chariots took 2nd thru 5th place leaving the skunk team, driven by Michael McKibbin, to fight off the remaining slow movers for the coveted 6th place “Sand Plaque”.

  • 1st - Adam Fry - Emus
