There is a two day land speed racing event May 19/20 to which I want to bring "black & green" and camp in the lake bed. A small contingient of EM members to join me & friends?

El Mirage

This is the site where that HASport first gen Insight famously rolled at nearly 200 mph a few years ago (the driver survived remarkably well, thankfully). I was at that event with my daughter but we overslept that morning and arrived as the FD & EMTs drove up:

On a happier note, the cars are awesome aero projects. And it is one of the oldest such race sites in the USA.

See my car's mod & maintenance thread and my electric bicycle's thread for ongoing projects. I will rebuild Black and Green over decades as parts die, until it becomes a different car of roughly the same shape and color. My minimum fuel economy goal is 55 mpg while averaging posted speed limits. I generally top 60 mpg. See also my Honda manual transmission specs thread.
