Pictures on their official site - wow, looks like they improved an already very impressive facility! Looks like some good close racing, shame about the 6 cell rule.

No Xray team there :O ...... after how well Teemu (especially) did at the TITC thought they may have wanted to get some testing done on the new surface and would really be a challenger.

Cheers for the updates Scotty, keep em comin' !!!!!!!

Barley got round 4 complete. Sky is really looking scary and thunder in the far distance. But we got it in..

Fastest run for the weekend.. Marc comes out on lap one and lays down a 15.4 lap. And continues to run flawless for the entire 5 min almost going 20 laps. Jilles Groskamp with another good run and as I congratulated him as he walked off the stand he said it was on old tires! Here is the top 10 for the round

MARC RHEINARD 19 5:00.910
ATSUSHI HARA 19 5:02.8
JILLES GROSKAMP 19 5:03.8
HAYATO MATSUZAKI 19 5:05.2
MASAMI HIROSAKA 19 5:05.2
HUPO HONIGL 19 5:05.583
MEEN VEJRAK 19 5:05.725
SHIN ADACHI 19 5:05.726
BILLY EASTON 19 5:05.940
SURIKARN 19 5:08.4

THEN
DAISUKE YOSHIOKA
KIM ENUG CHAN
JIHUN YOO
TAKASHI KATO
HIDEO KITIZAWA

Last heat look at the guys with 5:05. incredibly close. 1/1000th between Meen and Shin

We are hoping to get round 5 in today, looks like it is going to be close. Next round to start at 1638 Bangkok time.

You could not believe how close the bad weather came at the end of round 5. As the last group started the sky got very dark and the wind started picking up. But we were able to get it in.

A very close round with another close to perfect run by Viktor only hitting a curb on the last lap that might have cost him the 20 lap run. Here are the top 10.

VIKTOR WILCK 19 5:00.687
ATSUSHI HARA 19 5:01.3
HUPO HONIGL 19 5:05.2
MASAMI HIROSAKA 19 5:06.3
BILLY EASTON 19 5:06.4
MEEN VEJRAK 19 5:07.4
ANDY MOORE 19 5:08.1
SURIKARN 19 5:05.6
DAISUKE YOSHIOKA 19 5:09.8
SIMON NINCHOLSON 19 5:10.2

THEN
KIM EUNG CHAN
BART WUBBEN
TANIT KACHAPANADA
TAKASHI KATO
SHIN ADACHI.

Not sure what the points are yet or who is in the top ten overall. We have to do these points on a separate computer so it takes us a bit. I will get them to you as soon as I can.

Glad you guys are enjoying these simple updates. I wish I had more time to go thru the pits and really get some good info, but just to much to do.

Later,
Scotty

Sorry about slacking this morning and no early info for the day.

No rain last night, so the track is perfect.

Practice mains have been ran and it was a good race.

Marc took the win.

Getting ready now for the first A final..

This should be a great race. Everyone so very close. I will post results as soon as I can.

B final just finished. Shin Adachi wins

Well A final number 1 is in the record books and it was a exciting battle. 1 of 4 drivers had a chance for the win as the race progressed. Victor Wilck took the lead at the start, Marc second and Masami got a great start from 5th on the grid to 3rd, Billy Easton from 7th got to 4th at the start. Viktor lead for the first 2 min and then caught a curb and dropped from 1st to 4th. Marc went to the inside as Viktor was flipping but he went a bit too wide and this allowed Masami to slip past Marc on the inside to take the lead going onto the straightaway, this also allowed Billy to move to 3rd placing Viktor back to 4th. For the next 2 minutes Marc applied as much pressure as he could and with 1 min to go Masami got sideways in the sweeper allowing Marc to take a look inside but was not able to make the pass. Going into the S section Marc made a small mistake allowing Billy to move to second but only for the first part of the S section as Billy hit the second corner of the Sís trying to make it a double jump. Unfortunately Billy was not able to stick the landing and dropped from 2nd to 4th. Now with less than 1 min to go it was Masami, Marc, Viktor and Billy. This is how it went to the end, Masami taking the win and getting an extra lap turning 20 laps.

Here is the run down.

MASAMI HIROSAKA 20 5:16.205
MARC RHEINARD 19 5:00.538
VIKTOR WILCK 19 5:00.742
BILLY EASTON 19 5:01.160
ATSUSHI HARA 19 5:03.783
JILLES GROSKAMP 19 5:04.628
HAYATO MATSUZAKI 19 5:05.809
MEEN VEJRAK 19 5:06.137
HUPO HONIGL 19 5:08.154
SURIKARN 19 5:08.831


It was a very exciting A1 and with Masami taking the win from 5th starting spot, it should make the A2 even better.

More updates after round 2
Scotty

Hi Scotty,

Great to see you here with the updates on the race. Wish we were there right now. Can't make it due to delays.
Btw, there are lots of your pictures on the official site.

Andre sends his regards. Keep in touch.
