Friday did see some static fire-ups. Here is Alex Mikkelsen with Mary Bush in the Mastercar.

 

 

As reported by car owner Bill Pitts: "Jeep (Hampshire, behind car) saw this lady in the crowd who was showing incredible interest in being in the car. So she was drafted and we eased her into the full get up and she settled in and did just fine throughout the fire up. The Magicar really snorts on 98 %. So she definitely said it was the thrill of a lifetime! The gift that keeps on giving."
