Take nothing away from Alex's great driving and an excellent result for Xray, this is just my thoughts.
Love your work Andy...
Matey, at the worlds, it proved that all cars are up to RS levels nowadays. It really was a championship of adaptability and setup knowledge.
So many drivers with the power who couldnt use it, those with lightweight options that didnt matter, it was all about keep the car on its wheels and having the finesse to drive it. there were a few struggling with engines, but as I was close to the track and had a camera on them, you could see the varying setups on so many cars. Some were flat, some had roll, Jilles took off sway bars, Alex using a low profile heatsink.
All in all, it was anyone's championship with any of the major cars, everything had to be right and luck had to shine your way too.
