I heard a report that Kurt made some test runs at a local airfield, over 50 miles covered with almost no issues. His Lightning has a rebalanced crank and some other changes for this year. Sounds like the ignition problem from last year has been cured.

All the best to Kurt, Paul Jensen his ace mechanic, and the rest of the Vincent Viking crew, I hope they are able to improve upon their existing record speed.
