Day 1 wrap up.
Track is very hard, people improving their times by seconds.
Matt Tilden did 4 practice sessions and Michael Bilyy did 5 (of 6). We both missed early morning sessions because of unloading and pit setup.

Michael had smile on his face after first session ("it is like roller coaster!"). After second he felt pain in his right hand, after third it was whole arm and the rest of the day he was dealing with completely tired condition.
Lap times are over 1 minute and they have 12 minutes practice. I don't know how many turns, but there is 0 flat ground turns, they are all with up or down elevation changes.
In 5 sessions we made 0.5s improvement. There were no visible chassis problems, driver is not complaining. I guess he just need to get comfortable to try it differently.
1:06.4, 1:06.0, 1:06.3, 1:05.9, 1:05.9. Front runners are in 1:04 (don't know high or low).
Matt improved from 1:05.9 to 1:02.5.

I saw 7 MicroMax drivers today, looks like Pato is the fastest so far.
