Default worlds entry list

hey all: Sad to see so few usa drivers going to the '08 on road worlds,but as jimmy jacobson said "tc racing isn't as big in the usa as it once was and teams arn't willing to spend the money to send their teams as they once were it's now all about 1/8th nitro off road" That being said we do still get good turnouts for some of the bigger usa races like novak tc champs,cleveland indoor, snowbirds,reedy race and carpet nats. Also there are a ton of realy good tc drivers outside the usa so it should still be a fun and competitive event Thanks

My money is on: Hara, Masami, Rheinard and Groskamp.

Hara has been doing well in both on and especially off road recently. So I would like to think he can ride that momentum and parlay it into another Worlds title.

If Masami won it would be like when Dale Earnhardt finally won the Daytona 500. A very cool scenario indeed.

Both Rheinard and Groskamp have been doing well in the ETS so it's hard to count them out as well.

I personally cant wait to see how things turn out.

im just rooting for any of the UK guys making the trip.

would be nice to see Andy retain his title, also Chris Grainger for the A main.

and best of luck to Elliott Harper, a lad with his head screwed on well.
Taught him everything i know.......not sure if thats a good thing or not lol

Surikarn ... highly unlikely .. even on his home track

He tends to drive through other cars .. too many smart drivers ahead of him

i want Masami to win the title and i don't want to see him retired he is such consistent and fast driver.I don't see why he should retired he still consider young or you can say matured compared to other young guns

Ouch thats straightforward... Racing is unpredictable... who knows the race leader might have a wheel pop off...

Like other, i would like to see Massami winning, but if he is going to retire afther this win, i would say something bad, i prefer he stays for some more years, and he does not need to win anymore race to be considered the best, a legend, alive of course.
He is like Aryton Senna, he does not need to win all races to be in our mind and heart.
He was my idol when i was 10 years old and started to race, now i am 30, and for the first international race, i saw him in Italy Collegno 2006, and he spoke to me like i was a friend, so it worth any time to wait for it, my dream it is true.
