I see.It makes sense,big races like NEO would count to world ranking like the WRC is run.
On the early practice issue I'm against it,wasn't Hara that moved to Pattaya half a year before the 2010 Worlds?

I dont really see how people say Kings win was luck?? he had something figured out after the semi and I was watching him as the fastest guy there with Hara! going into the final he was never out of it just patience and a solid backing. Wouldnt mind seeing him win again! Of course if I got to choose who won it would be Dakotah cause he is such a good kid.
also seems the Euro guys are getting the whole jumping thing figured out so this is going to be one to remember!!!

Deciding it by one race, one stroke of good, or bad luck is kinda lame.

The kind of thing where everyone runs out and buys AE and Hotbodies cars immediately after the race, when the B,C, D, E mains were flooded with a ton of Mugen and Kyosho cars.
agree. Should be at least one in US, one in Europe, and one in Asia. Kinda like a glorified triple main.

Hara still lives in Thailand, he didn't move there for the worlds.

Would be nice, yes. But costs are going to be the reason this won't happen. I think even the big companies don't want to spend that much money. And don't forget, the worlds aren't just for the two dozen guys that are fully sponsored including travel costs. There are many other drivers attending, that probably have to pay for their flight tickets themselves, I guess.

Thanks for the correction.

Andreas,with 3 races you can reach 3 times more privateers.Instead of you and me traveling to a track in the opposite side of the world there would be a World race championsip in a country near us,granted it would be more expensive if you wanted to race all 3 races but why would you do that?

Yeah, maybe a triple 45 min A mains is a better idea.

I'm sure if it really mattered the pro's would have said something by now. Just seems like having so much riding on one run is kinda lame.

Yeah I agree one race but they shouldn't open NO access - not fair for others that are far away. Someone that has track time has a advantage it should be equal playing grounds. If stated "worlds" then to me that's a HUGE challenge in any sport they should manage this race for all equal parties.
