It wouldn't be a big event if we couldn't manufacture some controversy after the fact... especially if fueled by some that weren't even in attendance.

Exactly Juan (and congrats on your 4th place overall in TC Stock, nuf respect)

There was no "stop and go penalty" given out, everyone (including the announcers) understood that it wasn't Billy Easton's fault that he got hit and jumped over the board. Just like had been done several times that weekend, instead of having a turn marshal retrieve the car and return him to the other side of the board, the driver would wait until the pack of cars drove by. It would have been very controversial for him to retake his position at the lead of a multi car pack after jumping the track, regardless of how he was put there.

Billy Easton was fast and so was Rick Howart but sh*t happens and thats why we have Triple A Mains. Hara is the Nationals Champion and he rightly deserves the title.

Look at these series of pics from the start of A3 main and check out Hara's holeshot to take the lead in the first corner. I was flipping these pictures back and forth and it almost looks like Hara makes the pass like Billy is standing still! *edit* correction, its a pass on Rick Howart for 2nd, not the lead *edit*















I still have hundreds of pictures to sort and edit, there will be a link to the gallery at HarshGuy's Gearchart.com when complete.

Damn, you're right! Thats Howart's Tamiya, I didn't look close enough at the paint scheme. When you flip the pictures back and forth, it did look like Hara was teleporting into the lead, I'm glad it was just an optical illusion.

Oh great, now you just started another controversy, Hara had a gentelman's agreement that he wasn't gonna break the space time contimium to teleport himself to the lead, but your pictures show that he did

no, you have your facts screwed up. he tried to use his +12 teleportation powers, but since he didn't have proof of citizenship it didn't work.

gosh

Atsushi Hara won the 2005 JMRCA Japan Nationals on Nov. 2005.

I am not sure if this has ever been answered.
This was covered at least a year ago. I believe Hara is US resident.

Unfortunately yes it was...It was a front motor JRX-S with pretty much my last setup.

Driver was just plain better than me.

Woe is me.
