Giannini Racing

While the rest of us were eating figgy pudding or drinking eggnog, Uch was busy turning machines in the shop and getting ready for the coming season. The man is brilliant and relentless.

2 of 3 Honda CR77 motors that will be built by spring...plus Midge's CB350 motor.

Craig-

you're right, that setup won't be able to run with AHRMA or VRRA, is there something else i'm missing?

yeah, giannini is able to command some serious stuff. the dual disks will run with USCRA and WERA and he's building a single disk wheel with a different caliper for AHRMA and VRRA....crazy. I'm glad your just busting, we sure don't want to run afoul of the rules. right up to the edge, yeah, but not over...he kinda hates that about me. one of his disparaging nicknames for me is, "the rulebook". haha.
