  Nice variety of Cars and bikes. I really like the AA/FL belly tank. Sparky, I like the canopy on the #2212 B/GL. Diesel Truck is bitchin'. Awesome shots of the Target 550 and the Ack bike.. So high of expectations for Marlo. Sad. Thanks mate for posting.

Great video!  Lots of Treit/Davenport!

Off-topic: who's the artist "I Love It When You Let Me Drive"?  Somehow my first thought was modern rockabilly Richard (RIP) & Mimi Farina.  <dunno>

Great Video!

Can anybody tell me how far apart the sideline flags are at the Lake (not the width of the track)?  From the video, they look to be close together, maybe 500 feet, at least those we could see.  They are 1/4 mile apart at BMST. I would like to see sideline flags closer together at Bonneville. 

Am I the only one?

The faster you go the narrower it gets. I would suggest you stick to one side.

At 150 mph it seems forever watching them "go by" at 1/4 mile apart, at 500 feet it would feel like the rider is going 200 mph?   :-D

That Australian flag in the pits shows that there was a significant tailwind?  How are those one-way records adjusted to account for that?
