Thanks for the shots! That purple lakester is pure sex! Anyone have details on it?

Esslinger powered.  I think that it was shown at Cobo this winter, but I can't find the coverage.

I remember it now! We discussed it last winter. Looks even better on the salt!!!!!!!!!!!!

I was able to do a Pre-Inspection on the car at Speed Week. Chip Gerber, who is partners in the car with Steve Tracy (Advanced Plating) has been running a Roadster for some years, and has a handle on things. There really wasn`t alot they needed to address. Really glad to see it out and running....

Like yesterday, the trip in from Lands End was no fun with deep water in several areas!
Weather was absolutely spectacular again today! Mid 80's, few clouds and plenty of sunshine.
Met several more members from here and again REALLY cool to put a face with a name/ID.

Here is my Google+ link of some of today's bikes and cars in the staging lanes, pits and under way on both courses!

As usual, I hope you enjoy the pics!

Thanks for the explanation Kiwi Paul and pretty much what I found out.
I took many pics of it this morning and there are about 1/2 way through my pics link.

Thanks Gregg,

We were gutted when SW was cancelled and your images bring some consolation.. we wish it could have happened in August though. :/

What did you think, Mister guy all dressed in a faux Nascar outfit.  Did you really think that new-style Camaros are just as good as an old Toyota Land Crusher -- drive through anything?
