Have you ever raced with someone enough to know where and when they'll let you pass cleanly. Once you get used to eachother, it's easier to race clean together.

All the US drivers get together and race, improves the US's chances. I'm sure they have other reasons, but that's the last one i heard.

not fake, all the jumps are as is in the pic. I raced there last year and am headed there next month for the C-netic challenge. the coloring is a little funny in the pic which makes it look weird

its the most amazing track in the world....

It could take more time to get into a country when you are carrying lots of stuff that are not usual for the customs officers... try to get into the US from other countries with lots of products, tools, etc...etc... but I think that the problem was already solved and I wish the drivers to have a great time in our country.
For what I know, they were enjoying the track since yesterday, and I wish that everybody around the world start to receive good news about the warm up and for sure, if you are coming to Argentina, you will be welcome. There are lots of persons involved in the Worlds to assure a great championship and to enjoy our beautiful country as much as possible.

Its normal to take time in this situations, what i think is not normal, it was each person have to pay 500$ to enter in Argentina

I'll be stunned if Tessman takes worlds. Yes, he's been on fire this year and yes, he's got the talent, but he's pretty young and overall less experienced handling worlds level pressure. I'm looking the Tebo Mayfield direction or an old veteran to rise to the occasion

It's not on their race calendar. I doubt they would send a crew without advertising beforehand.

Hopefully the track owns RC Scoring Pro and has an internet connection, so they can broadcast themselves.... Something is better than nothing....
