Modified Truck Top 10

World's Class 3rd Place - Masami Hirosaka

World's Class 2nd Place - Ryan Cavalieri

World's Class 1st Place - Hayato Matsuzaki

World's Class Top 10

Congratulations to Hayato for the well deserved win!

Well, that about wraps up the first innaugural Yatabe International Off-Road Grand Prix.

We hope you enjoyed the coverage and pics.

With plans for a bigger and even better race next year, we look forward to seeing you there!

Thanks for the coverage Robert. Too bad it didn't work out for Tebo and Maifield to attend as well. I know they would have had a good time. Congratulations to Hayato on his victory and I look forward to seeing everyone at the Cactus in a month or so.

Robert- Great coverage, thanks. Yatabe is an awesome facility. What a great place to race. I too have always wanted to go there after seeing it from the 95 worlds. Congrats to Hayato on his win.

Ohhhhh I long to race on dirt like that! The composition looks sweet!

Any full track layout pics? The layout looks like it has some cool features to it.

Hard wiring for charging! That's pretty hard core.
