Not to be pain, but could you please add the type of aircraft next to its name. Some of us simply aren't in the know... :(

Thanks,

I'm looking forward to the sport class this year. I've been following Elliot Seguin and the development of his new entry Wasabinaught and it looks like it'll be a nice addition plus it's going to have a pretty big group again. It seems both it, Formula, and Biplane are going nice and strong and will continue to be a draw. It is nice to see some of the "return to stock" racing for the Unlimiteds and maybe a more sustainable format, but I think the "smaller" classes are what will allow Reno to continue to feature the big birds and seeing continued strength there is heartening.


Each class is going to be VERY competitive this year. Biplane will be a given, but 2nd and 3rd will be a good race. F1, your best guess at winner is as good as mine. Miss Min is back, she's fast. T-6, the most recent 4 winners are all racing, Chris Rushing is back from a year hiatus, Jets, Rick most likely won't be able to keep up with Pete's L-29, and there's a few other 39's gunning for them, Sport will "officially" be competitive this year. There is a pretty good chance Jeff might not come out on top. Who is gonna dethrone him we will have to wait. And obviously Unlimited will be an awesome competitive field. Similar to sport, you could flip a 15 sided coin and that could be your winner... :)

No worries, RARA posted it as I had it initially posted it so I just copied it over, adding the types was easy as well :D

I saw mention of streaming on Facebook, from memory the gist was "keep going to our website and checking".
