It doesn't really matter. From what I hear everybody that was there made the best of the track time they got.

Back from Thailand

track is very very difficult and takes tons of track time to get used to it, Tebo needed 300 laps to run clean for 5 minutes, ill let you guys imagine how many laps i needed to do the same

as Casey said, the track was lightly oiled before we got there (arrived the 15th) and it rained in the mornings. track surface was good during the afternoons with good bite but still the track was very difficult....

the track wasn't the same as it was few days earlier, many jumps had changed and the surface became very bumpy in many sections...

after the first 2 days, i felt a bit connected to the track and managed few laps without mistakes, lap times improved day after day and my best was a 46.7 on my last day of practice. quiet happy with our performance and will hopefully try even harder during the WC.

rain stopped and the sun was on for 3 days, the track became very dusty and abrasive. very hard on tires and not very consistent lap times as cars were sliding all over the track.

few big names were around as most left back to their countries,

had the chance to meet Ryan Luts and what a great guy he is, always ready to answer questions and always had the time to sit and talk, amazing guy and a driver, he is looking really good with his Durango running a best of 43.9s lap!!

JQ arrived on the 18th i think and THE car looked amazing on the track, his best was a 45.5 on a very rough track !! JQ is also fast running go Karts
awesome guy and alot of fun to hang out with, Kim as well

now i need to gather everything back for the WC as we leave in 11 days!!


cheers

Ali

So Lutz was 6 seconds faster than JQ's fastest lap? That doesn't seem right...

I'll 2nd ali's review on the track, it is the hardest I have every driven on, not to mention that you need 3 setups for the track conditions as it changes from oily to dry to wet.

Ryan is one of the coolest guys to chat with and his bug is awesome on the track, not to mention his driving skills.

JQ was also there testing his bug out, looked nice and dialed once he got the setup right on the track, seems to jump so effortlessly.

Like ali said, you guys do not want to know how many laps it took us to get connected to the track.

I can still hear the engine revving up in my ears during the night...

I am not sure about your podium pick lol but we will have to wait and see. Mr. Tebo seems to be on top of his game with his mp9tki2 this year. I run at his home track and see him alot and he seems very happy with the way everything turned out while he was over there I am going to say tebo cav and not sure for 3rd but I do not see it being drake as he seems to be falling off alil

Cool

I wouldn't count the Drake out! After not making the final in 08, I think he is on a mission to win this time. If Drake is falling off, I am following him all the way down!
