    During the races have something on display in the general admission area highlighting the meet & greet in the pits after races.

    What a way to help fund bringing one of the legends back.

    Maybe show fans some of the processes. Change the process daily.

    Perfect opportunity to help the team get-er-done.

    Its not a bad idea. I wonder if RARA would be interested? I know they pay for a vender spot every year, I wonder if it would cost more to get a pit? It would be mutually beneficial for both. That said, I don't know if they would get more traffic in their current spot or in the pits as they have a pretty visible spot near the stands.

    "We back drilled the right empennage skin today and we will hopefully finish the left tomorrow, then it?s time to start packing for Oshkosh."

    Tsunami has now left the building... and can be seen a Oshkosh.

    For everyone who couldn't see Tsunami in person, here you go.


















    They are making headway. I think the next step is to pull the cleko'ed panels off, sand blast them and primer them, then rivet them on for good.

    Forgive me if I missed it...is the Tsunami team pointing towards PRS 2023 as their target date or is it too soon to tell?

    And BTW, thanks for posting these. Seems I never have time to spend in the pits and vendor areas anymore. Much appreciated!
