when shinya finished repairing the cable, there was an announcement from the tower saying they were going to close the course after the first round due to the rough course condition. so no more run for shinya. BUMMER!!! but that's the way races are. (even so, i've been watching him preparing and just saw him fixing the cable in the boiling van, couldn't hold back my tears...) shinya said he will be more prepared for the next month ;P
this will be Stacie B. London's first land speed racing.
and it's her racer, 1967 Aermacchi 250 Sprint.
at motorcycle tech. we need to renew our helmets every 10 years. shinya started to participate in land speed racing in 2007, so it was time to get a new helmet. (it's a bit sad to say goodbye to the helmet that we spent 10 years on the dry lake and salt flats together...) luckily, Bell gave shinya a brand new SNELL approved racing helmet. it means a lot for a private racer like us. thank you, Bell for your support.
