|FlightLine Update 8-24-98
Sparky: Steve and Brant Segetti are currently working on their Unlimited Class entry at their home base located at Nut Tree Airport in central California. Specifically, they are making modification to their P-51D, "Sparky", in an effort to gain enough extra speed to qualify for the Bronze race this year. They missed the qualification cut-off speed by three places last year. The modification is to add an ADI tank in one of the gun bays in order to be able to push a bit more manifold pressure. Brant will definitely be piloting Sparky at Reno in 98.....Good luck Guys!
Sprit of Texas: The Hawker Sea Fury FB-11 of Stewart Dawson, Reno '97 race entry#105, will make it to her second showing in the Unlimited Class at Reno. Taking first place in the Bronze Unlimited Class Race last year was just what it took for this competitor to get hooked on air racing. Coming to this year's event with a new R3350 radial under the cowling, she is looking for competing in the Silver Class...... and also looking forward to see if she has what it takes to garner top honors in this faster class of unlimited racers.
