I think perhaps he doesn't like "Roast Beef" any more - the links above I nicked off his post on S&F.

Going off topic a little, they have head lights for when its dark. I know thats a no brainer but what I was more interested in was how they power said light. A 2.5EFI barely has enough charging capacity to keep itself going let alone a 50W head light for maybe 6 hours?

Probably not an issue - I doubt a 2.5efi could keep running for 24 hours without blowing up.

Great to race to watch especially at night. Just 1 hour train ride from Paris.
Anybody going ?

Tried that. Her first question - what powerboats were there. She knows me so well.

A while back Jan Falkowski said that he and Drew Langdon were thinking of entering. Don't know if anything came of it though.
