A+ on the new line system. A+ on Marvin policing the line cutters. A+ on all of the start line crew

Bill ran 290.xxx.  With all of the excitement, he forgot to shift in to 6th.
Eva went 188 but had programming problems that caused it to cut out over 3/4 throttle.

Was Bill's run to the mile and 1/2 or just to the mile?

Great event and thanks goout tothe staff and volunteers.  Bumped my best mile by 6 mph and the bikes best by 3 mph with a 160.  Best 1.5 mile was 163.  Data logging worked well and I got my first taste of tuning with the power commander.

Lobster feasts pre and post event were great and there is still a pig roast in Albany to take care of.  Combine those meals with a great meal at Cafe Sopreso in Presque Isle and this event ranks way up there on the Land Speed Culinary Tour list!

Great meet ... Tom Cronan turned in a 260 mph speed on Eric Paquette's DAS Performance air cooled 1991 Suzuki.  This guy can ride a motorcycle.   

Joe

Eric's bike sounded like a fighter jet at the 1.5 mile mark! 

Thanks to everyone for a safe weekend.

Enjoyed the chicken BBQ Saturday night. Also thought running Friday afternoon was a great idea even if it didn't go as smoothly as we would have liked. Hope this will be included in next years event.

Agreed! I also like the "short" course for those of us that are speed impared.
