from Kim Krebs on FB:

DLRA Speedweek update.
I just spoke with Greg Watters, who's back in phone reception and 160km into his 1300km trip home. He says the salt this year was very soft and became easily rutted which was a nightmare for the bikes (as Shane Gaghan had already told). This was also seen by the cars that were spinning too easily. The winds were frequently strong and were not always an agreeable tailwind.
He's not sure why, but entries were down on previous years, so it was possible to get 2-3 runs a day, but given the deteriorating salt conditions, Greg didn't think many people would be lining up for the last day of racing tomorrow.
And the super news from all of that is that the trip to Lake Gairdner was just what Greg needed.. With the fire destruction of earlier in February now behind him, he's ready to start rebuilding bikes for Bonneville.
