Well, the first mains are over and well.... it wasn't pretty at all.

4 or 5 cars finished the mod A main. Other then a few drivers simply have some common courtesy and race manners, the race was a "joke".

So much crashing and damaged cars, take outs and destruction.

Ronald drove brilliant, was very courteous and deserves the win. Hupo also held on for second, Pumpler survived for 3rd, Hara 4th, Meen 5th. The rest were off the track before the half way point I beleive.

Other then that there isn't much nice to say. If it sounds harsh I'm sorry, but it was a mess. Several drivers are very upset.

The Stock mains were similar, big wrecks.

Dan- From the Auzziez- Berzerker reporting in- Jake was on fire until he caught some traffic- After that, "Battering Ram Engaged" and executed some fine Durability Testing.

Fish has a "whiplash" from craining his neck about as the ladies walk by.

Jakes just "smiling and nodding".

After speaking with a few of the Non finishers, some of my statements may be a bit off base. We'll leave it up to you to decide when the videos come out.

I'm sure there will be videos floating around soon enough, there must be about 15 guys recording the races.

2nd main over.

Much Better. Moore led flag to flag, but not after a hard push from Mr. Hara. With around a minute left Hara's car rolled to a stop. Looks like a fan failure cost him.

Volker put on a hard charge, but contact wit Pumpler put him and Thomas "way back".

Hupo fought hard and came home second with Jilles Pushing hard behind him in the closing laps.

Meen
Marc
Jeffries
pumpler
Volker
Hara
Adachi- Car rolled to a stop at about the half way point. Only thing I've heard was that maybe it was an "electronics issue".

So the final should be very interesting. My guess will be "big action" for sure.

What happened, everyone go to bed already??

Nice, good job Shane.

It's funny, my stuff is all set for CA still, so It shows I posted all of this "yesterday"....

3rd round of mains starting up pretty soon!

I'm packed up and ready for the party! They have a Great banquet at the track here, Food and Drinks and Lots of racing stories.

In case anyone was wondering, I think I got 3rd in my E Main. I was taken out more then a few times..... But the Car was good!

Little inside information from the WC.

Moore lost pace at the end of the run, his car was making a "dragging" sound. Like the body was dragging.

Turns out it wasn't a body, his rear upper bulkhead brace had lost 2 or 3 screws, and a few of the bottom of the chassis screws had also come out. One had simply backed out so it was sticking out about 2-3 MM and dragging all over the place...... WOW!

Charlie, Thanks for the report from Bangkok.

Can you give a rundown of the electronics being used?!
Maybe also in 23t or stock please...
