Full Noise is Seventh in the Unlimited Gold Final at Reno

History was made at Reno on Sunday afternoon (Monday morning our time) when Reno rookie Graeme Frew competed in the Unlimited Gold Final Race.  I am not an expert on air racing but I wonder if it is the first time that a rookie flying for a rookie team has qualified for the Unlimited Gold Final?  It certainly is a great achievement for Graeme and the mainly Kiwi team.

The photo is a screenshot from the Fighter Flights Facebook page and shows the eventual winner "Strega" taxying past Full Noise to start the Gold Final Race.  Strega won at an average speed of 481.3 miles per hour and Graeme came seventh out of seven.

Thanks for the ride Graeme!
