I am rooting for Scott Brown to have a good showing.

I'm not usually one for self promotion, but since Petit always does it, why not!



Not too much there just now - for obvious reasons

I'm knackered, was up late last night (4am) getting stuff ready and not even started cleaning my cameras yet. We're setting off tomorrow with AE Team driver Lee Martin - hopefully we'll not get lost on the way

I must plan on going to watch this race. It's about 4 hours from my home.

we leave for Japan tomorrow and after a great weekend racing in AUS with sunny skies I have just checked out the forecaset for hakusan..... back to typical racing weather of rain...

really compounds the fact that worlds should be held indoors - yatabe would have suited perfectly. long way to go to have it rain for the event.

I am hoping the weatherman is having an off day and is wrong.

Panther is the spec tire. Cool to see a change

Might put LOSI over the top to have to pay cash for their drivers tires

Tokyo will be hit with a Typhoon tomorrow. It will be cleared by the time the race starts but it might affect a few people flying in Thursday.

Link to the driver list. Some excellant drivers from the US.

Komatsu is on the very edge of the Typhoon. The eye should pass west of Tokyo around 0200 as long as it continues on it's current route.

Robbers will be watching from the sidelines on this one.

I'll also be rooting for Scott as well as Masahiro Otsuka. He used to race at TRCR until he moved back to Japan last year.

OMG!!!! I was just looking at pics of the track. What a great location to promote RC to the world. NOT! How sad that the only people watching the event will be the people attending the event or nerds like me who know about it and watch online.

Good luck to all the USA guys. Punch it!!!!!
