Great video! 
Thanks for turning off the music during your run so we could hear that awesome engine.  Grin

Sounds like your tires were picking up a LOT of gravel out there.  How was the traction?

The course reminds me a lot of the one they had in July.  (Especially that long straight in
the middle!  Did anyone mention how fast they got going?)  With the irregular layout of
their blacktop, I imagine there are only so many options if you want to use as much of it
as possible.

So, everybody just needs to study that video to prepare for the BRR challenge at the end
of this month!

p.s. you made it onto the PCA photo page!   http://shn.pca.org/archive/AX120908pix.php

Here is my video from that event.  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ewv-h6sMysQ&feature=g-upl
As for the long straight, I had my foot to the mat for almost 9 seconds and two gear changes before braking for the left turn at the end of the straight.

The BRR course maybe similar in spots, but our rules call for a maximum of 250 feet between course elements, so there won't be any 600 ft straights like that one.

That didn't look like 600 feet! (2 football fields)
nothin wrong with a straight or two! It's racing. 50 -60 mph no problem.
My worries are with the immovable objects (buildings) I think they pose more concern than anything else.

cool videos!

Thanks,

On the course they had in July, Harry said he hit 110.
