One thing that would be interesting to know would be the difference in rolling
resistance from the sands of Daytona in 1906 to Edwards Air Force Base in

Did the Steam Boys run onB some kind of pavement,B or dirt, at Edwards?B 

They say that the sand at Daytona was a lot harder 'back in the day' than it
is now. I wonder how that compares to what theB  British Steam Boys ran
on.....and also how does it compare to the salt at Bonneville.

(The only sand I ever ran on was on a beach in California with my
bicycle......and it was darnB tough going!!)

Would this give more or less credit to Team Stanley?
