Not too sure where you got your info but actually Summer here in Asia starts in March and ends in early June.The rainy season usually kicks-off around late June and not long after starts the parade of Typhoons just like it does over in the Caribbean, Florida, and Gulf of Mexico areas. Fortunately this event started right after a recent Typhoon that hit Japan (not far from Tokyo)... otherwise at least part of the event could have been canceled.

thats not really fair for the people in the early heats to race in the mud.

maybe there should of been some sort of reconfiguration of the heats, so that all the fast guys go first heat or the last heat.

or not run the heat at all untill the conditions become sufficiently fair from the first heat to the last.

I'd love to dive deep into the all of the serious discussions going on here but I'm too busy falling in love with every girl I see; not to mention Charlie is singing sweet nothings into my ear while Ronnie Gardner catches flies with pliers.....Like Gravy on a biscuit, its all good.

With regards to the weather/track the organizers are doing the best they can and the track crew is top notch. I wish I had the work ethic that many of the people over here do. Even Mcdonalds employees are top of the line.

YO D FURUTANI WHAT UP DAWG.

So looks like Yokomo Protested the 5th round due to unfair conditions. But It got denied.

Hyato TQ
Truhe (Yeah Novak)
Maifield
Cavo
Masami
Martin (Yeah Novak)
Tebo
Bradby (Yeah Novak)
Peanut
Pavidis

I don't know if this is official or not, so don't shoot me if it's wrong.

Practice main starts in 13 minutes
Mains start about 1 hour 10 minutes after that.

wow!

I said all along it would be Hayato or Cavo, but now I'm not sure, any of those guys have a good chance, and anything can happen in these conditions!

Truhe is really in it... and dont write off Martin Lee.

fwah! the excitement is overwhelming!
