Is Race 11 going to try to qualify again, or is Dr. Hinsey pissed about the DQ and not racing?
They reinstated the Bear after it was shown as DNQ.

I saw her out on the ramp - via the live video feed on loadedtv - about 15-20 minutes ago. Someone was wiping her down and it appeared she was getting prepped to fly.

With the number of entries, I predict Airbisquit in Silver at least.

I can't comment on flying too high, cant see 'em way up there, but they should pay a bonus for low flying.

Over 400... not bad! What's the fastest Miss A has ever run, changes to the course notwithstanding?

Really..?? Flying too HIGH..??? Ya; gotta be kiddingLet's try to remember, this is not necessairly what RARA wants, it's what the NTSB recommend and the FAA wanted. Pilots are not happy being "squeezed" into a smaller space around 8 but that's what they are having to deal with.... There were meetings this AM, reporters not allowed, we may have some changes, let's hope...

The altitude restriction is based on the "ballistics" if there were an issue at pylon 8. Higher altitudes means parts travel farther. At least, that's their reasoning. Hopefully, they'll work something out.

Qualified at 414 last year.

So what you're saying is she's as consistent as Dreadnought... ;-)

Pylon 8! I'm wondering if the altitude squeeze addresses one safety issue and creates a bigger one?
