    Tony and I finally saw the new RF COT bodies. They are now available at Eagle. As such, Tony and I have approved them for use at the 1100. We are still awaiting the availability of the new RF F1 before approving it.
    Merry Christmas and Happy New Year...

The Warmup will be run exactly like the real race on 6 June but heats will be 3 minutes.

    Look forward to seeing you all at the Warmup on 4 April...
