I think that seeing as its on carpet for the first time since '98, Britains David Spashett will be in the mix (he won the title the last time it was held on carpet), as well as Andy Moore. Our other hopefuls for the A final will be Andy Griffiths and possibly Olly Jefferies, who both made the A at the 2005 Euro's.

The Ahoneimi brothers (1st & 2nd at the 2005 Euro's) will be in there too, along with Masami, Hara, Blackstock and the rest of them.

If I had to make a bet now, I'd go with Spashett or Masami, purely because of their experience, and what they've already achieved.

Well there's only 1 person who's going to win TC, Mark will the first person to retain the title!!
Masami, Hara, Moore and I hope Spashett and Drescher will be in there too. A couple of RCAmerica drivers have a good chance to make the show.

Only the 1/12 racing is on carpet.
the TC racing is on a out door ashphalt track (correct me if im wrong).
And i think Masami will win this year closely followed by Hara, judging
on the latest race these guys met.
At the JMRCA Nationals Hara won and the cyclone dominated but
i think that masami was the fastest guy there.
He just had some bad luck

Yes it is done properly in Europe.
1/12 on carpet, as it should be.
Touring on tarmac/asphalt, as it should be.

I prefer both TC racing and 1/12 racing on ashphalt.
But then again i have never raced 1/12 on carpet
with traction additive.

hey the tc will a close race. I haven't seen what the venue looks like. I'm also glad to hear that 12 will be on carpet, I have to agree 12 should be on carpet also. I just hope it will be a 12 scale specific track. Narrow lanes and tons of turns. Should make for a close race, can't wait to see to outcome of this year worlds.

In TC, you may want to watch out for Groskamp, the guy's an amazing talent.
