Looks like Sept Fury's engine went bang during her qual run. Plane and pilot are otherwise ok. That has to suck for Mike and the boys.....I was looking forward to seeing what she had. Maybe Dread's motor can be swapped on???? LOL

Bad joke right?:(
Was it something minor or is September Fury out for the rest of this race?

Hopefully she is not damaged, but I admit any hiccup in an engine turning what she must need is probably catastrophic. Those particular engines/nosecase ratios are very rare...

I hope it is nothing bad. I spoke with Mr. Brown and his bride on Saturday and everything was so enthusiastic. All the planes looked great and he and the team are nothing but class act. That news sucks................

From what I understand from the pit she lost a cylinder and the engine is gone.
Talk is she did a 508 "half lap" just before....
Are Dago's days numbered?

508 mph under the new speed system maybe......dago will go 520 under the new system......which is actually 502 or something under the old "real" system.

Just talked to a sourse at Stead and the basic story is

Stick A Fork In Her Shes Done!

Sounds like it will be a low boy ride back over the hill.

This is not from team but from some on site eyeballs! :mad:

Rats, I hate to hear that the attrition is starting already. I was really looking forward to seeing that bad boy fly.
