    Hey Guys. Thanks for all the kind words. Our time error was 0.13 seconds against a target of 54:00.000 minutes, yielding an average speed of 99.996mph. Kudos to Chris for his speed control, especially during the long downhill run into the finish. We do not have our speed trap result yet, but we believe we were up around 121mph. The maximum speed, called ‘tech speed,’ allowed for the 100mph class is 124mph.

    This a totally unique event and I would absolutely recommend it. It does require an investment of time (5-6 days) and money (a bit higher than a GGC HPDE week-end.) Car preparation is similar to HPDE, but with a couple of differences.

    I’ll write an article for a future eBombe to explain a bit more about the event.

    Chris and I are already discussing competing in the fiercely contested 110mph class next year (30th anniversary) and it would be great if GGC had additional representation..!
