Yeah, This was a weekend to forget for him. He was actually among the fastest on Fridays practice. Car was flying, and he drove fine. But as qualifaication started, and grip came, he began to traction roll in one left hander with a bump just ahead of the corner.
No matter how he changed the car, he still flipped in that corner, so it was tough.
Even Atsushi Hara have a weekend to forget. Actually, quite a lot of "fast and famous" have a tough weekend, and you find them all over the result list. But itīs also fun to see new guys doing well.
But no excuses. He will try harder again next time.
He will come to Snowbird, and I beleve he will race 19t, Mod & 1/12.
Other interesting stuff:
-I beleve Corally batteries beated Trinity with 3-1 in blown cells. Quite scary to be honest. They go off like bombs. One sended some stuff quite a distance only to burn a hole in Jilles Grosskamps brand new Tamiya sweater while he was woking on his car....
-Scotty was flaweless, as expected.
-The organizers have done a fantastic job with the whole event. Hats off to them.
