From Norm H. a few minutes ago.

All three Aussie Cars have ran over 200 mph at Bonneville!!!

Mark' belly tank fuel pump is having trouble keeping up to the bigger jets.

Mark's going shopping to see if he can buy a bigger pump so he can keep racing.

More from Norm H.

After lowering the rear end of the Monaro by two inches Wayne Pickles ran a 216 mph on the long course where the fast guys race!

Norm Bradshaw ran 203 mph but broke a distributor drive and a fuel pump.

Distributor drive has been sorted but they are running around trying to find a high volume pump.

Norm hopes to run tomorrow morning. They have to repack the container tommorow lunch time.

Correction: Norm Bradshaw does have a distributor drive problem and has decided to quit racing.

Norm does not have a fuel pump problem but has offered to give Mark his high volume fuel pump to get him going again.

We would like to congratulate the Aussies for a job very well done. We're proud of you.

Just got this from Evy,s facebook . Dont think she will mind .
After some trials and tribulations we got here last nite... with 2.5 days to go... but as they say; better late than never....was just like coming home... ;-))
After tech @7am 'caus Grayem was there early and he's just a
champ I got in the queue and did a Shake down run and 175mph license pass this morning, ran 200.3 yeehaaaa....
2nd run topped out @ 205, but missed out on a record qualifying run caus I got to the fuel station too late...
Not to worry, tomorrow we'll try to go really fast!!!
Cheers from magic Bonneville. ;-))

Ev broke tiger in the three mile. think positive crank case ventilation
so, I'm off to SLC on mondat to see what I can do with a couple of engines
she certainly lifted the bar on th existing record and we were waiting in impound fo the protest which didn't arrive
looking forward to BUB because if Ev can crack the 200 in FIM she is eligble for a red hat
