The SCTA & BNI will present World Finals 2010 at the Bonneville Salt Flats October 5 - 9. Tech is on the 5th, with racing beginning Wednesday morning and ending Saturday afternoon. Pre-registration ended the 24th of September, but racers may still register at the event.
World Finals, in case you don't know, is another event which allows racers who set records to get their name published in the next edition of the rulebook. The other events are the World of Speed and Speedweek. In fact - if you set a record at WoS or SW and that record is eclipsed at WF -- the new record, not yours, is the one that'll show up in the new book, due out in spring of 2011.
World Finals features cooler weather and smaller attendance. The weather is usually nice, although rainouts do happen kinda frequently. The smaller attendance results in much shorter waiting lines in both qualifying runs and in impound (if you're fortunate enough to get there). While Speedweek had about 500 entries and World of Speed about 160 -- Finals usually features only about 100. It's a fun event, though (well, all of them are fun) because the smaller group allows more personal interaction -- and the lodging rates are certainly low. However -- the Wendover area celebrates the deer hunting season by offering special "Deer Widows Weekend" packages, entertainment, and promotions on the same weekend as WF which might lead to difficulty in finding a room.
Nancy and I will be at WF, doing our regular volunteer jobs and running a bike just for fun. We hope you'll be there, too, whether for all-out record chasing, test and tune, or just for the fun of visiting and running at Bonneville once more this year. See you on the Salt!
