Default First Vid

I'll work on getting footage of Lee's turbo RV-7 up next.

I see discussion about 400 mph laps and people being close to Andy Findlay this year. No. Currently racing, only Jeff LaVelle has also run over 400 mph laps. These laps are on the new course which is different from the speeds set on the old course.

Running 370-380 isn't even close to what these two are capable of.

Andy had more hp available this year over 2018 where he averaged 402 mph, had he needed to use it. Nobody is going to push their engines if they don't need to

Most folks have no idea what it takes to run these speeds. The bar is always being moved up.

Default Lee Ulrich Turbo RV-7

Here is a short vid on Lee's airplane with SDS EFI taking care of fuel and spark.
254 mph in the Bronze race. That's movin' for a -7. He embarrassed some glass this year.

SDS allowed Lee to turn the tables on Dan West from 2018. Some good rivalry between these two RVs.

Default Great Videos 👍

Hey Ross,
Thanks for sharing and well done to you and the whole SDS Team .

Congratulations to all the teams that work so hard in this space.
I could watch that Lancair at just under 400 mph all day.
It was fun to watch you try and keep up with Andy’s Lancair with the camera.

Reno is on my bucket list for “one day”.

Thanks Ashley. Yes, even with my new camera this year, it was hard to get close and smoothly follow the action on the main straight where Andy and Jeff are doing over 400. I got lots of jumpy footage but had to edit most of it out. As usual, I edit about 75% out for the final cut.

That sound is truly awesome...

Our success this year again has already led to a couple more top tier Sport Class guys to sign up for SDS in 2020. Happy about that.
