Is it worth going to Reno this year ?
Doesn't seem to be too much going on compared to last year...

Thanks,
Phil

Was just on their website.
Seems old and tired, and a lot of empty seats... :?

Alright Phil here's what I got, I know WIX isn't a Reno site so I don't usually comment on it... Dreadnought will be Dreadnought, Miss America's new cooling system should allow it to keep up with Dreadnought making for some awesome racing. But most importantly is Mike Brown's Goldfinger. If you follow any air racing groups on Facebook, you would have already seen they clipped the wings at the production break, and there is more in store, could be a built engine and spray bar setup but you didn't hear that from me. Mike has also made it clear that Goldfinger may not be the 'end' of his racing career. He "might want" a Super Stang but wouldn't make it Goldfinger since it's a pretty immaculate resto to NAA spec, outside of the wings/less the gun ports... Go this year and tell Mike you appreciate what he's doing. Nobody else seems to have the motivation to add some excitement to the Unlimited class, besides Mike!

Also up in the air is the potential reveal and racing of Thibodeau's new Fury N63SF, and RARA is working with Tom Reilly to get the XP-82 there on display, unlikely but they're trying...

In terms of their website, it's trash. They're very active on social media. I typically post more updated stuff if you're interested. Haven't been lately, but off-season I do pretty well... http://renoairraces.weebly.com/
