September 18, 2000 (Redmond, OR) Reno 2000 International Air Race’s Gold Medal winner in the Sport Class goes to a Lancair IV, N599L (#99) flown by Dave Morss. Even though Morss and a factory-flown Lancair won the Gold in 1998 and 1999, this year wasn’t a walk in the park like many anticipated. Despite an injection pump issue early in the week, the Lancair team pulled off a record-breaking week with superb wins in the Sport Class. On Sunday’s Gold Race, and one last chance for victory, #99 streaked to the front of the pack and went on to not only win the Gold but set a new Sport Class record of 328.045 mph. Dave was clocked at over 342 mph on earlier laps during the week. The Lancair IV continues to be the fastest piston powered four-place aircraft produced in the world today.
