Default Never published DGRR 2007 article..

Even though editors at MazdaSport magazine promised that it would be published before DGRR 2008 event, this never got published..

Since we worked hard to get this story out, i figure its time to post it here!!

Enjoy and let me know what you guys think!!

I wondered what ever became of that article. Now I know. I hope next year will finally be a successful trip for me. 3 years in a row and every year a failure.

Yeah I think goodfellaFD3s has one floating around, pretty neat.

I found video's of the gap make it look MUCH easier to drive then it really is - still very cool though.

All the videos on youtube make the actual speed appear slow. We know how fast we're actually going but to the casual observer it looks painfully slow.
Just imagine how slow the video's are when someone is stuck behind a stupid Harley. Those WANNABE's should just get out of the way.
