4 second observations
From: Daryl Perkins
4 second engine run at the finals. As a timer and observer at the finals this year I found that with a future installation requirement of electronic timers and RDT required now, most of the flyers are already using electronics, there is a consistency of engine runs across the board. I did not hear of any over runs called out. The programs the flyers were using aloud for plenty of room in the sequence for there being no question of over run with repeatability at the touch of a button. Running the engines this short certainly adds a challenge to be sure. Congratulations to everyone involved in this year's finals, a job well done and congratulations to the F1 teams, great flying.
1. Great to see you back on the field again Daryl, almost did not recognize you without the mustache
2. And for Gil I can add to Daryl’s comment that there were no Jury actions at the event involing F1C Timing
Thanks from Oz
From: Malcolm Campbell
I loved the live feed! It was something to wake up to each morning in Australia and feel like I was there. Well done Roger and Lindy, it’s much appreciated by us inquisitive ones. And thanks for getting the results out on the Kotuku and Sierra Cups so quickly, when you were so involved during the whole week.

A special word to the F1E community is that Peter Brocks will be coordinating the events on the “hill” as usual.
