Today's F1 race has 24 entries with one special car honored
Paul Sterrett's eagle is an excellent example of a realistic looking D3 F1 car.
Tech inspection is done. It's time for Concours judging.
A special Concours recognition goes to Wayne Leary's entry. Wayne passed away recently, but had painted this Eagle F1 body awhile ago. With assistance from Bryan Warmack, Wayne's car was recognized as a special Concours winner.
Bryan added Wayne's name and the intake cover.
Wayne did a great job in painting this Eagle body.
Bryan Warmack just completed this new F1 chassis for Wayne's Eagle body.
Attention to detail: Wayne added these custom tailpipes to his car. Nice touch Wayne!
Congratulations to Wayne on his beautiful Eagle F1 car. He's a D3 winner just as he was an Indy/AAR winner!

Bryan Warmack and Philippe de Lespinay proudly congratulate Wayne on his winning Concours Eagle. Thanks for building the chassis Bryan. And thanks to Dokk for introducing us D3 racers to Wayne Leary.

The D3 racers meeting begins.
Paul Sterrett explains the new hand out motor rule. From now on, the handout motor rule will only be used for the Checkpoint Cup and Western States (as well as any other big race designated by D3). All other Can Am races on the King track will only require using a TSR D3 motor (welded or not welded).
The handout motor rule is the only rule being changed (immediately). Note: since BP now opens one hour earlier on Saturday and Sunday, the D3 race schedule for each day will start one hour earlier than previously.
Can Am tech inspection is next.
Dual inline motors. Double the speed or double the trouble? Another amazing Warmack machine.
