Over Christmas Hara was racing his BD7 2014 against Jilles and Jilles took the victory.

Personally all these guys are fantastic. As an enthusiast I am looking forward to seeing Hara race in the ETS.

For the worlds, it will be great, there are some top drivers out there, also dont count out Xray. Ollie Jefferies is a fantastic driver.

Jesus what on earth was all that samson nonsense.

...the ETS is yokomo's championship if they wanted Hara to compete and batlle then so be it, yokomo are just the enabler and saves hassle and work from hara trying to get entry and a ride...easy route in yo plus it makes for a more exciting championship than just volker running away with it

I'd love to see Hara driving an Associated. They don't have the international presence that the car deserves.

Probably would never happen, but who knows?

Signed? Or just driving one for a few races? Where did you see this?

Hara will probably stick with Yokomo in the long run for several reasons. The company is owned and operated in his home country and there's a sense of national pride to fulfill. He can easily communicate with his new top Japanese mechanic, and other Japanese teammates with ease. Also, I think there an agenda to break Tamiya's IFMAR worlds winning streak.
