Home of Wasabi Air Racing

Elliot Seguin and Jenn Whaley's Formula One class air race team based out of Mojave, California. Pylon racing at the National Championship Air Races in Reno Nevada. Eight airplanes racing head to head around telephone poles in the desert. Mojave is the best place on the planet to build and modify a race plane, and Wasabi is lucky to have the best support in the business.

Flying with Ralph

Elliot and Ralph in the GT
Ralph Wise is a legend, and I have admired his GT-400 since I first saw it when I met Ralph in 2005.  the GT is the most recent of the 9 airplanes that Ralph has built, most of which being race planes.  Ralph is a staple at the Mojave airport, we can always count on him to help with whatever pickle we get ourselves into with Wasabi or anything else on the airport.  Last weekend I got the chance to fly the GT-400 from the front seat.  A fantastic flying airplane.  Report to follow.
