After yesterday's fun and games (and phone calls half the night) I decided to sleep in this morning. It's been too long since I got a good night's sleep...so I'm a little more rested today and have been making the rounds of the pits and Impound.
The rider who laid his bike down yesterday is Noel Petersen (or Peterson...I dunno.) He was taken to a hospital in SLC and treated for a broken collarbone and cracked ribs. He's being held for medication stabilization but he's a racer, so he'll be back out here tomorrow. I don't think he'll race, but he'll be where he belongs.
One of the many VWs in competition here. I don't think this one is part of the 36 HP Challenge, or maybe it's a variation on the theme. The owner said that as they were preparing to leave the blower froze up, so they were removing it to run normally aspirated. He didn't think it would be quite as fast.
Then I dropped in on the GFHS pits where I was greeted by a smiling Micheal Werner who informed me that the run they mad this morning fell victim to a timing light failure, although Tim said that his on-board speedo showed speeds around 29 and 30...almost a 20 percent increase over yesterday's run.
Speaking of Tim, he's adjusting the drive train as I told him about Freud's suggestion that he get an agent. He gave me a blank look and I explained that he'd prolly need one to deal with his new-found fame and notoriety.
Btw, he's been with the project since the beginning. I'd guess that he knows as much about the car as anyone on the team.
Finally, an up close and personal look at a 130 Club Stude. Looks kinda friendly.
