I love my racing, even though I've got no chance of being world champ, as long as I'm happy with the car and have a good battle with my mates, it's good enough for me!

I+m not so sure the result was that bad either. The discussion was why there was such a different in the layout so we this time have to use the spool instead of one-way. It cost a lot of money to send a team from Europe to USA for a warm-up race that in the end did nothing but gave the wrong input. This was the reason Xray teamed up at the warm-up and not the Reedyrace, where spool is used.
I donīt think there is anyone at all who donīt think Marc deserve his victory either. And why should we? He was the best. Period.
Right. XRay had 6 cars in the top 20 which is not bad at all (more than the competition). But... that's not what we were there for, so we are definitely dissapointed about the result. Like Greg indicated, with the limited track time it is all about who can sort the setup out fastest. We were slower than the competition for several reasons. Not the least of which was the fact that based on the pre-worlds we were prepared for a one-way type track, not a track that required a spool.

Don't get me wrong, we don't use that as an excuse, it is part of our analysis of where we failed so we will do better next time. We were behind the game from the start and didn't catch up until the finals. Which simply means that the others were better prepared, preformed better on the day and deserved their place in the A-Final. Like Anders said, Marc is the true World Champion here. Frankly it would have been a farce had he not won it after the display during qualifying!

As to the track, we all liked it and enjoyed racing it a lot!

Lucky you!
Our plane from Washington did not reach any hight, so we cruised just above the roofs until we reached the Atlantic and drop the fuel for a emergancy landing in New York
A lot of firetrucks with red flashed light meet us

After some hours we where back up again

Ouch, don't want that to happen to you. We had no problems at all. Even arrived in Philadelphia early so we had time to do some shopping before getting on the plane to Amsterdam.

How much time did you lose??

3-4 hours.
But I guess we where lucky anyway, as there was a crash yesterday at the Manchester airport... We changed plane in Manchester on our way to the Worlds

This is the largest track in Greece.
Each lane has 6m width!
Your feet are 6m high in order to be able to view your car at the other side of the track!

But we are off topic!

Why you say it's bumpy? Check those pics too!

This is the track that hosted the 2002 HPI European Challenge and I think it will host the 2005 1/8 European Cup OnRoad

It looks bumpy because the "ideal lane" is'nt very smooth.. sometimes it's the whole track width and sometimes just a meter, kind of

I still can not understand what you mean

There is only one place that is bumpy and this is due to settling of the ground.
