But I'm not the best operator.

I really enjoyed the play by play and the stories.   Would like to hear some/more driver/crew interviews etc.

One thing I would like to see is a "live" timing feed.   It could be a simple spreadsheet type web page that allows you see car#, class, driver, and each mile time live as it happens.   It should allow you to sort/group based on cells, etc.   Easier to catch up when you have step away from audio feed for work/meeting.

I "watch" a number of SCCA club races and most of them have this type of setup using the Race Monitor app.

Thanks for everything it was very enjoyable!!!!   Amazing to see everyone push until the end to get their goals.

Thanks for the pictures!  Do you know more about the drivetrain configuration in that green streamliner in the last few pictures?

From what I was told, it is front wheel drive.

Woody,

Thanx so much for the pics. I enjoyed the pics a lot. That helped assuage the discomfort of not being able to be there.  cool

Woody, You took several photos of the 2004 B/GS green streamliner, pretty slick looking piece. Did you have anything to do with it? If not what are your thoughts regarding the design? Just from your pics it looks to me they are trying to do a long laminar flow shape. Hope they run at World of Speed, I would love to see it.

Hi, to all.  I'm not happy with the radio coverage during speed week.  On Sunday we made a 281 mile/hr. run and never was on air.  The people were more concerned on how much money they could save if they brought 100 hamburgers in town.  I spend a lot of time and money to run there and what happened not only to us but to other teams, should not have happened.  If you want the world to respect what we do you can't act this way.  Sorry to air this but I feel it had to be said. Mike
