On the USFRA web site there is a reference to go to http://www.burlyb.com/ for the VW 36hp records. However it looks like that website is shut down and the domain is for sale.
Are the records hosted somewhere else?

Thanks
Don

I got this in an email from Burly a few days ago:

G'day Challengers
 
Below please find some great historic film featuring early Bonneville racers. Enjoy! And we also have bad news about the new ice land speed race in Sweden. The race was cancelled after the course was cleaned of snow and severe cracks found in the frozen lake ice racing surface. Quite a few VW's were on hand but the racing will have to wait until next winter.

I just tried www.saltflats.com and got the home page without hassles.  I didn't try reloading, though, so maybe the page is gone- - but anyway, it was there.  Try again, Don.

Thanks Jon,
The saltflats.com site is running, but there is a link there for info on the 36 hp VW Challenge. I just wanted to see the race results and records, but the link for burlyb.com is dead. The records are not kept with the SCTA site on on the Saltflats site.

I did go to the Facebook page as OneBadBug suggested, but that is a closed page and you have to be a member to see anything.
