Default Reno 2018

Reno is about a month away now and I'm planning to be there again this year supporting several teams running SDS products.

If anyone wants to meet up, I'll be hanging around race 31, race 33 and the F1 pits a bit. PM or email me and we can exchange cell numbers.

Hoping there will be a couple new Sport Class entries this year if they get all the testing done in time.

I'll be there, in the F1 pits a good bit of the time as well, hope to meet up with you.

If the tables at the Peppermill are kind to me, I may just order the EFI setup for my plane.

Sounds good. BTW for those not familiar with the Peppermill, they have one of the best buffets you'll ever eat at. Not cheap, but a vast selection and well prepared. At one time it was rated in the top 5 in the US I believe.

I think were talking about different tables!

Not sure of the race numbers and we'll have to see if work and testing is completed in time for the races.

Default RARA Announces Racer Lineup for 2018 STIHL National Championship Air Races

Should be an interesting year in all classes. Several dominant planes and pilots missing from this years lineups could make for the beginning of a new era for RARA.

The Sport class is huge and that's good.

Unfortunately the age old favs of Strega, Voodoo and Rare Bear are missing along with their blinding speed and that great rivalry. Sadly that is probably the end of the great era in Unlimited racing. Let's hope some newcomers can keep it fast and exciting somehow.
