Got the latest report up, thanks Nick! Plus the interview with Hara (watch all the way to the end for a hint of what's to come from HB!) - more videos going online later today!

The site and the coverage are GREAT!!! Any chance of these vids being pitched to TV Networks? I feel that the time is right for RC to make its big break. And the quality of the RC shows that are being produced now is far better than what was previously on TV.

Ah yes, point taken. I suppose being grounded in the US I was asking about the likelyhood of it being broadcasted here.

The first 2 series of RC Racing were filmed in 4:3 and therefore not suitable for the US market.

However series 3 (which started in Europe this month with IIC coverage from Vegas) is in glorious 16:9 so we are more hopeful of it finding a US home

Nice to see more R/C coverage, but I'd probably add an s somewhere to the name Atushi! It doesn't look good to mispell the big names in racing especially when you are a big name manufacturer.

RC Racing TV has by far the highest quality production of any RC video/race coverage I've seen. Many people argue the viability of RC racing as a sport, or even that it is a sport, but quality coverage like this could really help promote the sport of RC racing. I hope they keep it up!
