The Desert Furby is perhaps even more endangered than the Tortoise.:D

Save the Desert Furby!

Nice shots! Well worth it! Did the camera survive?

The camcorder did not survive..... with 30 second intervals off the start line, I tried to run and grab the camera but did not have enough time -- and you can't see oncoming traffic on the dyke jump landing, so I had to let it sit on the ground longer than I wanted. A slower buggy came and squatted down onto the camera and squshed it a bit. Fortunately, the videotape was saved from total destruction and playable in another unit. Next time I will attach a string to the camera so I can pull it away when I need to. The footage was worth it.... now I use a much cheaper flash memory video camera for the crazy ground shots.

The first ground shot is of two wild 1450s charging out of the gate, and the second shot is of TJ Flores LVDC Class 1 vs. TT#16 Cam Steele/DA. I have more great shots I will save for the dvd.
