You americans think masami can't drive on carpet, you think youself too big.
Masami has taken the 1/12th title five times - 1988, 1996, 2000, 2002 & 2004 - only once on carpet. I agree with Barry that Masami really wants the Touring Car title - he was really disappointed not to take in 2000 at home. You can understand him wanting to concentrate on the one class.
Last American to win was Tony Neisinger in 1992 for the third time.
Anorak now hung back on the peg.
What about Markus Mobers and Hubert Honigl with the CRC car? Both went really well at this years European Championship.
