    Stevo was supposed to race 33 last year (or maybe it was year before last, can't remember for sure) Engine blew up on a test flight. So not sure they have exorcised that demon just yet....

    The engines of 33 and 44 had defective camshafts installed. 44's engine has been rebuilt and will be back on Miss Karen II shortly.

    33 is still without an engine. Steve Hinton was to has raced 33 in 2017 but since the engine blew up a few minutes into the first flight that wasn't possible.

    Thanks both for the updates... Looking forward to seeing them back in the future, hopefully a little less rough around the edges

    Sorta, kinda updated this. So far I've learned that Pete's Race #28 is now N105PZ (hence the PZ). It looks pretty awesome!!!

    Yet to see pics of 6, 24, or 37 if anyone has proof they're on site

    Race 24 is there, 6 and 37?

    6 broke something a week or two. I’d heard about some smoked pistons but this was something bigger. Vicky is racing #15 instead.

    8 just had the prop depart. All safe.

    30 had some smoke. Checked the cylinders and everything is fixed now. Will qualify tomorrow.

    181 broke a cylinder Saturday, but they are going to replace it (if they haven’t already)

    Very glad to see race 8 safe and sound on the ground. David is a heck of a pilot.
