Is there a Pork Pie's version of English to everyone else's version of English translation out there?  Just want to get one before I try to read Thomas's description of the quest for 200 (assuming he posts it here).  Just saying....

Well, to tell the truth, I'd suggest hanging out with PP for 10 or fifteen years as a good way to let him learn your lingo as well as the other way around.  It's worked for us. :roll:

Brother JohnBoy is right...

it was a journey....it was a fantastic one....going with the team through all up and downs to pick finally the record and at last the Red Hat....

and it was a great team work......

Stainless is right....in the Speed Records Club magazine Fast Facts....there were three articles I wrote about this journey.....part one (first part of the 199,665 mph record) was in a issue of the FF,
part two (second part of the 199,665 mph record) and part three (final record with Red Hat) together in the following issue of the FF....

on the Speed Record Club web page is a pdf file of the FF which got part two and three in, it is a free download......

and maybe someone like to become a member of the Speed Record Club....on this web page you can get your membership....the club is shipping the magazine worldwide.....


...and finally after you have read the articles....you maybe understand the Philosophy of making a run.......ask your soul what you need....

Fast FACTS (the quarterly newsletter of the Speed Record Club) has welcomed many articles from Pork Pie illustrated from his views from behind the camera lens. The Editor has developed a method of ensuring that everyone can enjoy the articles by translating the German/American/English of the author into a fully understandable language for racers. Printed copies of this centuries back issues are available (the first 50 issues are on five CDs) - backissues@speedrecordclub.com

Should you want to know about making speed runs in a range of cars (including the UK record holding jet car) then Fast FACTS will have many of the answers. Last month it was Ian Northeast with his Jensen on the Bonneville salt.

Issue 112 is in preparation as I write these words. The current Editor has created forty issues. Her name - Jane Pittwood.

Thanks PP.

Its going to be a long journey; with all the help and advise on the forum it has been a positive one so far. I am looking forward to SW2019 and being at Bonneville again and adding to my knowledge. Its a long Rookie road, thats for sure.
