Two rounds of qualifying and two heats of speed runs. The morning followed the pattern of the last two days where winds picked up after about 8:45.
Damjan DNF’ed and still hasn’t managed to qualify. A couple of other bikes scratched which truncated the session. Graeme went 51 mph in high wind, and laid the bike down after the traps. Here he discusses his run with team Cygnus.
For this first half of the week, my buddy Danny has been hanging out, and he has also provided his camper van at timing, which has a fridge. This made it possible to have beer at timing on Monday afternoon (but please don’t tell anyone). He took these pictures at timing yesterday morning, when it was sunnier than today. Can you tell that he is an actual photographer?
This has been your timing crew for the first half of the week: right to left: Danny (DG), me, Preston, and Brad at 200m who is thus not in the picture. To the left you can see race director Al Krause dropping off something.
