    Default Loving the little Yak!

    Might be familial loyalty (I own and fly a Yak-52) or the whole underdog rookie from Down Under thing but I am digging Graeme Frew and 'Full Noise' Race 35. Makes it fun to watch, especially a Cinderella story like this with the inability qualify, engine swap and starting literally from the very back of the pack.

    Great job to the Race 35 team, you guys deserve a chocolate fish!

    Haha next year it will be a smaller canopy, spray bar, and more boost! It would be cool if they could find another 20 mph tomorrow and make a pass.
