That's what I figured. It looks SO cool.

I don't know about you guys, myself and wife loved every moment of our holidays in Thailand, great country, friendly people, great history and culture...

Been there no less than 6 times, will definitely go there again...

I think the problem is that the track just doesn't look good on the vids. It looks kinda chintzy at first. But after watching a while (especially Savoya), I could see the flow to the track. He was hitting those doubles in the middle most of the time while others seemed to be struggling to clear them. So yeah, first impression is kinda bad but after watching a bit, I wish I was there. Should be fun.

Its going to be like the warm up track, for the actual worlds (surfce not layout). I heard they put the oil down and fixed the track after everyone left ...

Personally I cant wait for the World's as I think this year will be wide open, with a number of quality drivers spead across more teams should make for very competitive racing.

I think at this stage the track doesnt look as good as the track in the US for the 2008 Worlds, however with three weeks left I am sure the track will look awesome and any issues will be ironed out.

I also think the carpet will be removed from the track before the race. After all the preperation of the track surface for the actual race, why would the organisers want the track damaged through 'practice'?? Look at the track in Guarda, Portugal (Euro's 2010) after practice, it was shot!!!. Prevention is better than cure

Been there twice once in the Army and once for fun for a few months.
I could not agree more with your post.
A truly wonderful country and people.

Ive been there and tho i have not raced on the track, I did find my way there (wife had no clue there was RC there, YES, my D-RC people - I have been) That was a awesome venue.

I dont see how people who never been, watched some PRACTICE of TOYS cars on DIRT, complain that the track was not good. If people really understood A GOOD track is not easy. Most people here in the US dont know of a good track. Even the Worlds 2008 in US was more of a technical layout. Remember just cause you cant see it on a 4 inch computer screen does not make it weak. In the US we are use to being able to fly around 80% of the track at WOT. Looks like they tried to accomplish both styles Euro and US in one track..... I think Worlds are going to be dialed.

I thought it looked really sweet in the video of you racing on youtube.

From my perspective the track looked flowing and challenging. I hope you do great.

thats a good post, I think the worlds is going to be some badass racing.. it looks fast yet most cant go with out wrecking...even the best.... layouts like that usually mean that the guy that wins deserves the win..

The track looks fun, wouldnt mind driving it. As for the appearance it is most likely oil residue on the red and white lining. Once cleaned up it will looked dialed and groomed!!
