runs fast at the Rimbey Rumble2!
The Outlaw Drag Radial Association (ODRA) held thier
second stop of the year at Central Alberta Raceways in Rimbey July
Ethan and fellow EB Speed backed rider Dan Green used the awesome
track prep of the ODRA to test thier bikes in anticipation
of the upcoming racing season.
Dan Green and Ethan getting some sun in the staging
This was the first time out for Ethan aboard his
new and improved TS Signs sponsored turbocharged GSX-R1000;
nicknamed Eleanor. Of the many off-season upgrades, most notable
are the new paint / decal scheme, longer and lighter swingarm and
water /methanol injection system. The longer arm help lower the
times when racing in the USA where the tracks are stickier and
the water / methanol
injection will help to stabilize the inlet air temperature and
thus provide a bit more horsepower.
Eleanor's new paint scheme!
Shortly after the Saturday morning racer meeting
the skies opened up, with a fierce summer storm which lasted most
of the day. By the time the storm was gone the track was quite
cold and all the work the crew put into it was washed away.
Ethan made a couple of passes but the tire spun resulting
in poor elapsed times.
Picking up right were he left off last season,
running near record speeds in the 1/8th mile!
Sunday's weather was cool and overcast with the
track temperature marginal Ethan tried to make a couple
more passes to get comfortable on Eleanor after a long off season.
up right where he left off running a best of 4.91/161+ mph. This
test was very beneficial as Ethan had clean data to help
him come up with a plan for his next race in Indianapolis
in 10 days!
