2011 Bonneville Speed Week: Thursday Noon

Todd reports that yesterday Thierry was going for the 175 mph mark by mile 2.25 and 199 mph by mile 3 for his final license.  But the car had some issues, either engine or fuel/ignition and he had to back off at 177 mph.

They got the problem pinpointed and Steve Strupp, mechanic for Jack Rogers, sent Todd to Team Jesel who were amazingly helpful and lent Todd necessary parts this morning.  So hopefully by now they are back on the race track pointing towards 200 mph again.
