2016 AGM

Hi everyone, With Russ having a lot on his plate I'm helping out with booking our AGM. The consensus at the track was November 19th would be the magical date and somewhere near Toronto area (yay me).

Re: Peter & Jeff at TT

Unofficial results aren't posted but according to iomtt twitter the top 3 had speeds of 113mph and according to their facebook page they did a 96.8 on first lap. So they are keeping up with the pace and are in a qualifying position for the race.

But that will likely rise to about 95-98mph by the end of qualifying (as the top teams go faster). All the speeds I mentioned are average speeds for a lap. So they are definitely in th...
