Cool

It will be more interesting to see which cars, he doesn't feel the need to test

HARA is not racing with big caliber drivers... last time I saw him at the REEDY race he's a little off the phase with his HB TCXX between Ronald Volker and Marc Rhienard...

Think he's referring to the tyre tactics etc that came into play when a dropped round due to rain which screwed some drivers who'd saved decent tyres for a dry run and didn't get it.

So it can be said that if someone else had TQ'd they would have been "lucky" too right? Luck has NOTHING to do with it for anyone at anytime when racing. Luck is a excuse to use when you fail. The goal is to take advantage of the opportunity you have and make the best of it. Some can do this and some can't. But for another person to say "Oh he got lucky" or "I had bad luck" or "I didn't have enough luck" is a method of trying to deflect ones inability to be successfull in a given situation.

Calm down people. No need to write a thesis on luck. Lol

Read.This.Argument OVER. (Wheww..bandwidth saved)

"Delighted to be Top Qualifier, Hara was quick to admit it was a lucky result but said he did give 110% in his final heat as he wasn’t to know that it would rain during the top group’s run."

PS Hara is the BEST all around driver probably in history. Try to find me a WC where he hasn't podiumed. (Real fanboy comment)

If I wasn't calm YOU would know it...you betta ask somebody!!! That changes nothing. Hara is a true professional and as such understands what it means to be "P.C."

Alright, now lets get back to the crazy baseless speculations about what Hara will do next.
