Baltimore Kinetic Sculpture Race
2008 Race Report: Kinetic Airways



Here's a Sculpture!
< Previous Page Next Page >

Kinetic Airways

Bob Buerger of Frederick brought back Kinetic Airways for its ninth year. For the third straight year, he sought an ACE award, but instead suffered a catastrophic breakdown. Last year, he had a mechanical failure on a giant pothole at the water entry (you may remember the Baltimore City pothole crew that fixed it). In 2008, he had a brand-new transmission but after losing his three lowest gears was unable to complete the sand portion of the race. Bob has also raced in the World Championship in Humboldt County, California.  As you can see, Bob pulled a wheelie getting up the ramp at the water exit.
