Default Practice Day

Well practice is over for today. Most drivers got a minimum of 5 runs in. From what my stop watch clocked, these are the top guys at the conclusion of practice.

In no particular order:

Juho Levanen - AE/Reedy Brushless
Jilles Groskamp - Xray/Trinity
Marc Rheinhard - Tamiya/Orion
Teemu Lieno - Schumacher/Orion
Mike Blackstock - Xray/Trinity
Paul Limeaux - Xray/Truespeed
Simo Ahoniemi - Corrally/Corrally

Looks like we're in store for a great event.

I just arrived at home again after visiting todays practice for the LRP Masters class. Tomorrow morning there will be practice for the HPI Challenge classes which are open just for German drivers. After that 3 rounds of qualifying will be held with the 4th and final round on Sunday morning.
For the Masters class most drivers are running TRF415, HB Cyclone or Xray. Regarding motors it´s anything in the 7turn area for the brushed motors or brushless. I have to say I never saw so much brushless motors at one race before. As an example Team LRP completely is on brushless. For batteries you can see both GP 4300 and Intellect 4200. Some guys were testing East Power cells, whatever this is. I never saw those before.
As there was no official timing/lap counting during practice you don´t know exactly how is fast but I think the fast boys are the same as ever with some new guys appearing from time to time. Some names were posted before so I don´t have to repeat those again. Hara and Masami are not there, but Team HB driver Yoshioka Daisuke is there for the first time. He also looks fast as Kyosho driver Adachi, you also should not forget Teemu Leino and Jilles Groskamp and some others.
But I´m pretty sure track conditions will change over time with grip improving more and more. Also the track was bumpy in the beginning and was completely even now in the evening. We will see who will find the best setup but I think Marc Rheinard will be the man to beat. Maybe HB/LRP driver Ronald Völker is able for the fantastic performance again he did show at the worlds warmup and the German nationals last weekend. It will be interesting also what the US guys can do, if any of them will qualify for the A-Main my bet is on Paul Lemieux.
