Re: Two way runs for 2019

I know where you're coming from. If we did go with new records, this would be the ideal time to include the sixth miles speed if it was available.
I'd suggest you put your thoughts in writing to the club.

Two way runs for 2019

I'll put this here for people to comment on as the rules are not finalised yet. But here is what we are thinking. At this stage, you can expect it to be very similar to what happens at Bonneville. The big discussion has been what to do with existing records. We could lock them all up and start again...

Re: Target 550 for 2018

What makes you think they would not be coming?

The streamliner has been in Adelaide for over a week, they cleared customs and quarantine on Monday.
The team had to take every last thing out of the container for customs and then put it all back in.
Most of the team is here and Marlo certainly is.
