RedRc.net is covering the worlds and is another alternative to LiveRc. They have pictures, videos and a race report.

To anyone complaining about the track: open your own, bid on the Worlds, spend more money than you'll ever get back in return to host it. If you're not willing to do any of those things, shut your mouth.

The Japanese are looking stronger than ever this year. It's good to see the likes of Donny, Keven in the top 10. Hopefully, Alex H will get his stuff together. Also, it's interesting to see Ronald Volker isn't racing 1/12th this year.. a possible threat to Naoto?

The only threat to Naoto is Naoto. I've seen him choke, and choke hard - at the Japan Nationals.

Layout is so simple that the cars look like they were running on a toy track not professionally prepared track for WC.

there are only same type turns. No roundabouts , no fast chicanes that lead to 180 turn etc. no changes of rhythm . For almost 1/3 of lap you go with almost full throttle ( i doubt that there is a grate need to reduce speed at the end of straight)

Races where we ( localy) make lap times under 10sec are generally considered really poor or super "local club meetings". Track that lacks variety of types of turns often is a open door for drivers that for some unimportant reason prefer this certain type.

Summarizing I did expect more from the track. Happily I had to withdraw this year because of birth of my daughter. Otherwise I would probably be unsatisfied and felt that lot of money had been wasted. Seeing this track , I suppose it would have been better to run this event on controlled tires on asfalt track. It would be more interesting.
I would also think that at times being to quick to judgement
When looking at a track 1st image to process to easy not enough of this n that
But then you run on the layout you get a different respect of what the feel is
Its not easy when you have pro drivers struggling to keep it on all fours
jmo
Congrats on new bundle of joy

Nothing is going to change at this point, let's all enjoy the Worlds.

I like the track, it looks fast! And, its not as easy as it looks to go fast on a layout like that.

Sure it is for a buch of "keyboard commandos" sitting at home with another 100 excuses as to why they didn't actually goto the race!

If you qualify at the one spot do you get to start one for all three mains or do they mix it up?
