It's a new layout, with new fresh surface.
The website had pictures and layout drawing but now I cannot find them anywhere.
Anyway, it looks a bit larger with a tight infield, so it makes sense to have a longer lap time.

Good Morning to everyone. Or good night depending on where you are.

Well Mother Nature again wanted to play some games with us and last night gave us an absolute monsoon of rain fall. So we did not know what to expect arriving early at the track this morning. The RCS Track crew was here very early working on the track to get it race ready. We were schedule to start our first of 6 rounds of qualifying at 9am this morning, but I was worried that the track would not be in a fair race condition for the early heats, so we decided to run the first round as a practice round to allow us to get the track in race condition and we also decided to eliminate one of the qualifying rounds.

So we will be running 5 rounds of qualifications with the best 3 runs out of 5 counting towards the mains.

Sun is shinning bright this morning and we have just finished the practice session. Track is in great condition and ready for qualifications.

I will again try to give an update at the end of the first round.

Batteries are 6 cell. Not sure about new chassis, I have not had much time to go through the pits to check.

Correct about the new layout. absolute perfect job on the new surface.

Wish I had more time to give you more info, got to go.

Thanks
Scotty.


Oh yea Charlie thanks!
You to JT.

Round 1 of qualifying is complete. Very close up front. Top heat was within .10ths during the entire run. Viktor Wilck continued his great performance of 2008 with a great first round. Here are the top 10

VIKTOR WILCK 19 5:03.6
MARC RHEINARD 19 5:03.8
ATSUSHI HARA 19 5:04.0
MASAMI HIROSAKA 19 5:04.7
HAYATO MATSUZAKI 19 5:06
BILLY EASTON 19 5:07.2
HUPO HONIGL 19 5:07.4
KIM EUNG CHAN 19 5:07.7
JILLES GROSKAMP 19 5:08.1
MEEN VEJRAK 19 5:08.8

THEN IT IS
SURIKARN
DAISUKE YOSHIOKA
SHIN ADACHI
BART WUBBEN
ANDY MOORE

Weather is changing a bit. Gone is the sunshine that shined on us this morning, now it is cloudy and overcast so everyone is focused on getting in the best runs they can while the weather is cooperating.

More at the end of the 2nd round.

Thanks,
Scotty

I just had a quick minute to go thru the pits to see what some of the guys are racing.

Masami is running the Yokomo BDM (M for Masami version)

Shin Adachi running Kyosho Stallion with many Protype Parts

Marc and the Tamiya team are all running Standard 416 with short arms.

That is all I have for now.

Got to get round 3 rolling.

Later,
Scotty
