Below the bar? Is that 4 inches of depower pulled below the bar?

You wouldnt have lots of leverage to pull the trim but you also wouldnt have to reach over your bar to trim and change your point of balance.

Maybe set and forget setup... He has lots of normal travel vs trim travel. Racers did not reach over the bar - they usually hold depower rope in hand all the time. Its strange setup for race - but he won :)

BRM goes racing :)
Does he use alu ring and D half ring spreader bar as pulleys to trim? Or there is nothing about it and its just some shackle?
