I was a spectator on Sunday 4/13.  A nice sunny day, mild breeze, lots of
interesting and varied vehicles and people.

The event provided a great place to watch the vehicles  cross the "finish line"
at the 1.5 mile, where large display lights showed the speeds for the mile
and 1.5 mile points.  This was also the staging area for the race vehicles.
Rock music played, and there was an ongoing stream of announcements
and other of info, including at least one interview (with Dick Rutan).  He's
the brother of Burt Rutan, the spaceship development fellow.  I wasn't there
all day, but saw a lot of racing with no mishaps (yay!).  There was some
waiting after each runs, while the track cleared of the previous vehicle, and
also when a small plane approached to land on another runway. 

The event appeared to be well-run, highly organized, etc.

There were lots and lots of cars that looked pretty much unmodified.  Corvettes,
in particular.  I also saw an Aston-Martin, a Lamborghini, a Ferrari, and others,
including a very long (prepped for land speed) red Triumph sportscar.  It looked
like the front end had been stretched to be about 8 feet longer than stock.

Also saw The Big Red Camaro, which I also saw race at El Mirage about a year
ago.  Very nice.

There were perhaps ten motorcycles (several Hayabusas) that were there to race.

An electric Lightning motorcycle went 201.8, on an attempt to break 200.  Nice!
And I couldn't hear it at all!  It had a tapered tail end, which looked pretty
optimal (and a little reminiscent of Bill Warner's bike).  Another bike went 262,
I think.  I was facing away from the track when this happened.  Darn!  That
may have been the fastest run of the meet (just guessing).

It takes a lot of work and money to put on an event like this.  I got in for
free as a spectator.  I wish to thank everyone involved,  including the racers
and their crews and supporters.  And I would also like to politely suggest that
perhaps a small entry price for spectators would be reasonable.  It probably
costs a pretty penny to rent the Mojave Air and Space Port for two days!

Ralph Hudson ran a 262 Sunday. Mike Garcia ran a 247 Sat., maybe faster but I have slept since then. grin Erin, Mikes "friend" ran 226, I think, On her 1340 NA busa.

Brenda Sue ran a 234 mile and 239.6 1.5mi. Sunday she ran a 236 1.5 mi. She is now the fastest NA bike in the Mile and 1.5 Mi. Way to go Brenda.

A Big Thanks to Larry Forstall , my friend and partner, Steve Knecum Engine builder extrodinaire, and Johnny Cheese best tuner around, for helping us go fast.
