I can't wait!  I've autocrossed on the apron of this track and the concrete is in great shape.  My car is in pieces, so I registered my shop truck/tow truck.  Its a new track-every pass is a new record!  I'm sure there's a good Mexican restaurant somewhere close by-we'll be fine.  Hope to see Woody there.  Tailgate up?  Tailgate down? Tailgate off?
Just Google it - everything there is always correct!  grin grin

From the FIM Facebook page.

"FIM - Fédération Internationale de Motocyclisme

Valerie Thompson Racing and Team 7 Racing suffered a crash at speedon Monday 19 March, at Lake Gairdner during day three of the World Speed Trials Australia. Fortunately Thompson walked away from the stunning wreck with only minor injuries.

Conditions were ideal in the morning, as anticipated, and Team 7 Racing set out to make their attempt at the all-time FIM World Record, aiming for speeds near 400 mph. Thompson had passed the four-mile marker and reported being at 299 mph when the trouble started. Chase vehicles saw the tail end of the streamliner come up in the air, but the chutes were deployed which helped stabilize the resulting crash. The wreckage was spread out along nearly a mile of the course.

The team is currently assessing the damage and reviewing the incident. Owner Denis Manning and the rest of Team 7 Racing are relieved Thompson was able to walk away from the crash, and were glad to report that the safety equipment all performed as intended.

The streamliner left an impressive trench along the edge of the course, but there was no major damage to the track, which remains in near-perfect condition. Cleanup has taken place and racing is back underway for the rest of the contenders at the final day of the World Speed Trials Australia."
  299mph is a far cry from 343mph either way.  Went through the four mile at 299 and then the trouble started.  Glad she and everyone is OK.  Sorry Denis and hopefully the damage is not too bad.

Idle curiosity here -- I'm not trying to stir up anything, k?

What's the float going to do to the surface that's different from the (new) wheel packer that was rolled out ( rolleyes ) a year or two ago?  Said packer did some good, I believe I heard.  How's the float (flat heavy thing like a plate of metal with maybe a rounded nose so it "floats" over the surface vs. digging in) all that different from the wheeled thing?

"Rumor on U-Twit-Face is that it is going to the Peterson museum."

Sending one there might be a mistake.  How many vehicles did they sell off to put ugly red wings around a great old building?

I agree with Brian. The salt is different today than 10 years ago, we should try something else. If we go early and TRY it if it works we can have more made....

IMHO I think it should be out there ASAP to test in all conditions and applications.

Ran across this, I added it to FireFox, and it worked. It adds an extension to FF, really easy.
