I don't see how it CAN make a difference to road racers, we turn left and right the whole course, as long as the layout is designed right why should it make a difference? yet I have seen people pack up and go home because they can't deal.

Laguna Seca and Interlagos circuit in Brazil run anti-clockwise, as well as a few other world class circuits.
It's all good.

Planes, trains, and automobiles. 25 days and counting, can't wait for some great pan car racing.

Ian any type of update you can post on registrations so far? I'm up in the air on 17.5 or 13.5 12th scale.

Why not run both? Actually 17.5 is doing well so far, but when all the fast guys FINALLY sign-up I expect a surge in 13.5. Traditionally 13.5 is a BIG class at the Champs.

The 17.5 TC class is "ROAR Sportsman ESC" settings (no timing advance, no boost, no turbo). All pan car classes (1/12, WGT) are open ESC settings.
