The other thing of note is that during Speed Week more than 1/2 the participants and probably 3/4's or more of the spectators would of already been back home after the first 3-4 days of running.  Those guys all seem to stay to the very end.  Good on them  cheers,

Ouch. Look forward to the report. Glad to presume you are safe and well even though the car sounds sick.

This will mean no Bonneville this year for the Spirit of Sunshine but there is always next year!!!

Yes, but like your Southern Cross, we can't see them from the northern hemisphere!

Bunked at the Colonial Motel in Morgan SA. Truck has lost low beam and I got tired of using the indicator to see the white line whenever there was an approaching vehicle. I washed the outside of the truck and trailer but even though we had a shower at the 'Gutta we're filthy again because the inside was so dusty.

The track was poor,we learnt stuff and now have some more dots we can put on a graph.

Numbers were down so for those who could there was up to four runs a day on the main track.

We ran three times.

On my first run I.............

Well
the car was having some issues,
It was running rich for the first run until the end where it ran a bit lean,the Doc will explain
Turns out it wouldn't pull the 2:14s. who would've thought
so we changed the gear set.
final run , still running rich, ran well in the first mile, broke down in the second mile, picked up in the third
looks like the battery isolator switch was causing some problems and the rotation sensor has failed as
it wouldn't start when we got it back to the pits.
probably will not be taking it to Bonneville this year unless the post office delivers a bucket of money
Home now, sunburned and tired, emptying the van and washing the salt off
Our main sponsor (only sponsor) supplied us with a reflective cover to put over the tank that kept it cool in the sun
Oh and it looks like I'm chief motorcycle steward again  for another year.
And your President, well the SCTA president, Scott Andrews dropped by for a look and a couple of Tim Tam Slams
