    Arrow TUESDAY UNLIMITEDS

    So far, "Dreadnought", Sea Fury 924G and "Rossiya Su'ka" have qualified today. "Rossiya Su'ka" is currently in Last Place at 307.157 MPH, Sea Fury 924G is in 6th Place at 380.789 MPH, and "Dreadnought" is in 2nd Place at 439.566 MPH

    This leaves "Precious Metal" in the pole position at 451.352 MPH at the time of this posting...and word is that Thom Richard is taking her out today with the aircraft taped up, a new spraybar in place, and a landing gear door issue resolved: Victor Archer's shot of PM in the "Valley" yesterday showed a right side (left to us) gear door hanging down a bit...the Griffon is getting interesting...

    "Rare Bear" was disqualified on its first attempt with 2 laps for high flying at Pylon 8.

    Reigning champion "Strega" now sits on the pole at 493.299 MPH.

    Times are up on the http://reports.airrace.org page.

    Rare bear says DQ for high flying, but if that 493mph number is true it makes Strega's qual speed of 493.299 that much more interesting...

    Here's to wishing for the safe, windless and exciting Unlimited Gold race were all overdue for come Sunday!

    If they flew two laps, do they still get to try again?
    I can not get the rules to open on airrace.org.
