Well, here's the latest:
No running today -- it's inspections-only. But I got a bunch of photos of some of the vehicles and folks. To summarise what else is going on -- the guy that'll be running the audio streaming is here and working on it as of about six hours ago. He's already testing - but we won't have anything to feed 'til AM 1610 and the CB are on the air. But we're getting things ready.
Drivers meeting is 8AM Bonneville time tomorrow, followed by the usual course ride -- and racing around 10 or so.
There were not all that many vehicles going through inspection today. Steady traffic - but no huge long lines, 'specially in the bike section of inspection. I worked with Wa for the first few hours -- he did most of the bikes. Then Tom Evans arrived and took over for me -- whew, I must have looked at darn near 7 or 8 bikes! Wow, what a day
! Cars -- there were two or three lines going non-stop, but I don't think anyone had a wait of more than an hour or so. Nice, nice. And conditions -- gentle breezes and mostly sunny skies, so there wasn't much discomfort while waiting. The breeze picked up towards 4OPM -- picked up to about 15-20 mph tailwind. Dang -- why couldn't we have been running?
By the way, remember that there are 130 Club and 150 Club vehicles here, too:
And some aren't even race cars -- just worth noting:
Mark DeLuca, filling out paperwork for the Guppy Bike (above and below, and on the poster and t-shirt and even the event button:
The Save The Salt trailer is here -- selling stuff and working for us to have a great racing venue forever:
This isn't SpeedWeek for rat rods, but here's a nice car. . .
I'll post this and then go -- to the USFRA worker picnic in a little while. I've got some more photos for later on. Remember -- racing will start around 10 tomorrow morning, or thereabouts. And about the audio -- hey, I'll find out and let you kow how to get it on your 'puter -- or your office PA system
