We are 3 practice sessions in. So far only Michael, Brent and Palmer hit the ground.
Michael is already faster than last year but we need bigger improvement. After trying 3 different combinations we are going to try a bigger change. Best lap times in sessions: 52.77, 52.50, 52.33. Practice duration decreasing from 8 to 6 minutes to accomodate the groups in bigger classes.

Thanks Ihor for the updates!

I know you know this, but keep in mind that more rubber will be laying down day by day and will tighten your kart up. Just the cloud cover alone can either hurt you or help you several tenths of a second

Michael was flying today, literally, kart in front of him got into troubles. Landed on all 4 and right rear more than the rest. We changed bent axle but day is over. I had his helmet camera on, will post youtube link later today or tomorrow.
Jesse was preparing kart for tomorrow, Ross is coming in the morning. Matt got 3 evening sessions, still looking for the speed. Did not have chance to follow Palmer and Brent is good to go, judging by his speed. There are couple of karts capable of competing with Max Papis and Brent is one of them.

Ihor,
Glad to hear Michael is ok. If you can, get the kart on scales. There is a good chance the chassis could be bent.

Now there is a bold statement.

Rick,
How is this bold? Are you saying this is not true?
