The second to last turn Lucas was coming twords us when we heard a huge "pop". Both Foul and I surmised that Lucas had broken something. Sure enough, they went around one more turn and then stopped about 1/3 the way down the front stretch. So did something break resulting in the spin?

Mike, just stop by I have 3 rolls from the race printed. The old girl looks like she did back in 96 when she was new.
Pete, The boat does have #6's on it but its what is on the inside that is making the difference. It has the transmissions that we run with Lucas and Ettore plus a couple more to get to the drives. There is a lot going on in there but it is working well as a package. We will see when she runs against the other SV's at SBI.
Cord, I talked to Craig and Nigel after the race and the both said that they were a little loose in that corner and it stepped out the lap before. When they spun they got water in the motor. I missed the whole thing. I can't watch when its close to the end.
Cat, I am suprised to see that you were not running p class with the tri-maran. There was no trouble with Reggies new toy I think you could say it is a pawn in the game of life.
