Close inspection will reveal that The Fugitives (due entirely to a suspect kart, of course) were by no means the second fastest team, but consistency and lack of collisions paid off. In fact, knowing that the Fugitives couldn't catch Team Torque, and knowing that they had a couple of laps in hand, Gil nursed the kart over the last twenty minutes, avoiding all confrontation.
