.....'bout 12% of operating costs.....In Rare Bear's case, they may hav earned the coveted second engine. Something they have wanted for that airplane for many many moons.

Better watch out for these guys! If they ever get their hands on adequate funding to actually do some of the stuff on the agenda, THE RARE BEAR could become the dominate force once again.

The world loves an underdog. It's not often that an airplane with the potential of THE RARE BEAR winds up the underdog. She got back in the air and competitive with the HUGE amount of energy and raw talent of her new Reno based crew and for the most part, the effort was funded by $20. bills, donated one at a time by the most loyal fan base of any racer ever, anywhere. Don't count out that prize money too fast, it's going to be an absolute BOON to the effort.

No question, god was watchin pylon 4 on Sunday, 19 September, 2004.
