I know the boys were heading for Weldon for a big day today. I just arrived back in Oz so the times feel weird but it's about 6pm Monday over there so I'm wondering if there are any new speeds to be posted from today?

EDIT: I just spoke to them on the hill -will post on the speeds thread.

Bruce brakes 400mph. After many laps just under 400 of digging hard and having a hard time seeing the K-130 on the bottom turn coming back up the hill. With some missed radar reading, Spencer told Bruce that he was doing laps over 400 mph. Then all of the sudden we heard 424 from radar rock and Bruce pulled out and commented that if was to hard to see in he late afternoon shadow and said he was done. Billy had also had a 416 a few laps early but we didn't here him. Congrats to Bruce's 424mph new PB. The pic in this thread dose not show the radar gun that caught 424. Great flying as usual.

Nice winds yesterday. We recorded gusts to 53mph. I got to the hill about 2pm and Markus was already enjoying the wind. I believe the top speed was 337 with the Kinetic. John B. came up too and flew a very light D80 to just under 300. Conditions were rough, I've never seen either plane get pushed around to that extent. I only had a couple of JWs and a Bee with me. My beater JW maybe broke 170, my proto Peter Wick foiled JW was in the 190's, and my "killer" bee made it to 165!! I guess my next goal is a 200mph Bee. It's already blowing down at the lake so I'm off to charge batts and fix loose covering.

That's smoking fast for a Bee.
Only 5mph off the outright chevron record, currently held by the Rebel.
