That B final I reckon will be a little hard for the Aussies. Ever watched a Japanese round of the Moto GP with wild card riders, there's guys making the podium who just do that one round that you've never heard of and you never hear of again, I reckon there will be a heap of relatively unknown Japanese drivers in the top 30, a bit like Juho Termonin at the 99 Worlds in Finland making the 2wd A Final. He was an unsponsored driver up until the third round of qualifying when Orion noticed him.

But in saying that old Griffo was unstoppable at the Vics, so anything is possible

Being there at the '99 Worlds and knowing Jouko Termonen well as a friend, it was worth big-hand for Jouko for what he managed to do. It was a thing you dont see too often these days in big events. Jouko dominated all 2wd offroad races from 2000 until summer 2006 in Finland until he decided to retire from racing . Its a pity, being one of the most talented 2wd driver I have ever seen, he would have made it a great show in Vaasa at the offroad Euros held last month.

Still being one of those days to remember.

I remember there was a fair bit of hype around him, as he was only about 17 years old at the time also off memory and basically was unheard of outside Finland. It's great hearing stories like that, hopefully we see something like that in Japan
