Well said Glenn. Bob Ellis chief car tech has done a great job. There was a particular emphasis on checking tire roll out, one sedan had to run 55/85psi side to side to get the same circumference. By the end of he week the only spin was a car with a front blow-out.
Few understand what I'm trying to do but they vastly outnumber those who understand why...................

The Ross Racing Yamaha SR500 is in two nice pictures on pages 90 and 91 in the current (February 2010) issue of Classic Bike Guide.  It is on Lake Gairdner in the photos.

Stuart Hooper's bike is now a 650 instead of the 700 he ran at Bonneville in 2010 and it is supercharged. Here are some photos of the bike with the new this year Sprintex supercharger on:

G'Day Guys,
the PROVISIONAL results are now available at http://www.dlra.org.au/2016.htm

This year was very tight, everything ran like clockwork, heaps of runs, lots of records and personal bests, only 2 spins for the whole week.

We even added a set of lights at the 6 mile for an extra long course on the Friday.

Thanks to all officials and volunteers for a great job all week.
