The first official day of the races was today, Wednesday. The morning sessions were filled with qualifying periods and the afternoon sessions were the first of the heat races for all classes except the unlimiteds.
The Reno Air Race Association has a website at airrace.org. All of the qualifying times and race results will be posted there. I ‘borrowed’ some of the qualifying times and placed them in this pdf file. It shows the top four qualifiers in each class. For those of you interested in the unlimiteds, Steve Hinton (the younger) qualified first Flying Strega at 484.255 mph followed very closely by Will Whiteside flying Voodoo at 479.180 mph.
