And we've got our copies. too.

I'm going to offer a plea to all of us:  Do your level best in the coming year -- to patronise the many firms and organisations that put ads in the program.  Landracing.com/Kudos Engraving is just one of them.  We buy ads in the Book to spread the word of our business, yes, but also to show some $$ support for the SCTA/BNI by spending the ad money with them.  The ads aren't expensive compared to being in a big-time mag -- like Hot Rod or maybe The Donkey Farmer's Journal or so on - but still, for lots of the shops in the program even a small ad is an expense that needs to be recovered - somehow.  That somehow is by having folks buy stuff - or at least having them know that they could buy from the advertiser next time the product or service is needed.

With SpeedWeek cancelled -- lots of potential customers - the spectators, for sure - won't be seeing the ads.  That leaves us to help the sponsors get through the next year.  Do what you can and shop the businesses that are supporting land speed racing.

Thanks.  Okay -- off my soapbox and back to the computers. cheers

Thanx, SSS.  The SCTA-BNI is doing their best to get the programs to their most valuable audience -- the SCTA and BNI members. 

Here's the caption for the cover . . .

With both SpeedWeek and World Finals cancelled in 2014 by course conditions, the only SCTA record-setting opportunity was the USFRA’s World of Speed.  And everything didn’t always go right there, either, as witnessed by Thomas “Pork Pie” Graf’s photo of Andy Nish in the Nish & Poteet C/Gas Roadster.

And the cover for those of you who might want to buy one from the SCTA . . .

Woody, let's apply science.

We need to establish an incontrovertible, repeatable and documentable northern hemisphere baseline.

Stan, in which direction do you usually spin?  grin

Coriolis effect or shifter placement issues may have an effect on which side of your roadster you start unwinding your chute from, or which door panel requires disinfectant due to centrifugal force, but it could just be a personal preference.

By the way - my program arrived today - well done, Jim - pass on our thanks to the "people that made it happen", and to Pork Pie!  And thanks for sending them out - it's a cost that I don't think you needed to bear this year, but I'm grateful to have it.  cheers

GREAT shot Pork Pie.  Ray would say, "I told You so. He'd get it" and You

Freud,

I catch the whole dance...app.30 picture.....thanks to the today digital technologie I have not to count anymore the number of picture... rolleyes rolleyes rolleyes


I view them all and thought that this one would be the right one for the cover.....need only the right trim that it works for the cover size.....very simple

By the way, Andy Nish done a great job behind the steering wheel, he worked this situation out like an old pro
