Peter Looses a Gear During CPGP Qualifying

Laura captured an amazing sequence of photographs of Peter during his qualifying session for the 2011 Commercial Point Grand Prix on Saturday, August 6, 2011 (click to enlarge). We had made a gear change prior to this session, and somehow, the bolts didn't get tightened. He got through the first few laps before the gear came loose. The last picture below captures the gear as it came off. The chain has not figured out that the gear is missing yet! He qualified ninth, but made significant improvements in his merchandise race later in the day and in his trophy race on Sunday. A full race report will follow.
