    Just uploaded the on-board video of our first run this year on the salt. There was some sort of hold-up waiting for something to be cleared off the course, so the first couple minutes (2:30) is the car sitting at the starting line warming up. The face you see at the beginning is CT, our newest team-member setting up his vid-cam. Once I am underway, you hear shifting thru 4 gears. The orange banners delineate the course. After 3 miles, I get off the gas and try to scrub off some speed before veering over to the right where the return road is parallel to the course. I was going about 135 at the 3 mile. You then hear me extricating myself from the 5 point harness, wrist straps and helmet (3:30). I know parts are a little boring, but I didn't know how to edit it out..... Watch this with a good speaker system hooked up to your computer for max effect!
    This qualified us for the F/CGALT record. The engine is a 182" Stude v8 in a
    53' Stude coupe.

    Pretty cool. Maybe I am simple but did not find any of it boring.

    Yeah, but that probably helped the car warm up to operating temp. Kind'a nerve wracking though.

    Every run I've watched at Bonneville was exciting, kinda like watching the shuttle launch. Thanks for sharing.:)
