Hope you're feeling rested. We think we might have a shot at the podium today.

We lost some ground during the last stint, and Sallenbach has secured a pretty sizable lead at the moment, but we've got just over an hour to claw it back.

But you showed tremendous skill, and triumphed over Sallenbach—and everyone else—in a fair contest. Well, reasonably fair.

Thank you both. You gave a legend from the past another chance to enjoy the spotlight. Which is really the whole point of HISTORIA IN MOTION!
