@ JDXray

No, he's running a GM SX12W.

And he was the only one without a receiver battery, i think.

Kind regards Felix

Is there anywhere I could find a schedule for touring car? Or if someone could just put the thimble version on here? Thanks in advance for your quick response.

I find the Orion coverage absolute crap and irrespectful. They gave a result of the race AND of the overall result before it is anounced and official, a result that is usually FALSE and that they correct when the real result is anounced.

I take this as example : we called our contact AFTER they gave the result of the 3rd main, but our contact said it wasn't anounced yet, the race had only finished 4 minutes earlier. They gave their overall top 10 while we were talking to him, and he would have known if there had been anything.

The first overall top 10 they gave was the following : Masami, Hara, Kitazawa, Lufaso, Blackstock, Takizava, Takahasi, Groskamp, Rhienhard, Pumpler (with a mistake at Rheinard's name).

Just have a look at the result they now show.

I say, if they want to make a coverage, that's fair enough, but they should do it seriously and not provide false information (that they don't have) in order to beat other people who work hard to give you RELIABLE results on time.

It's all I got to say, for the moment, I give them a red flag and I flame them

Try a keyence.... you'll be blown away.....


Credit to masami, 3 12th titles in a row. Maybe they should give him the 2006 title now and save a few days racing.

Anyone know if masami ran the 3rd main or did he do his usual trick?

I have both GM and Keyence and I'm very happy with them

He didn't run, according to some reports I read. The Xenon racer won the last final

I understand he just sat it out and watched the others. That's why someone else got a chance of a win.

Well done Masami. A gentleman and a true ambassador of the sport.

I know the orion webmaster and its not his fault that he must drive 30 km one way to update when he has other thing to do at the track

you can blame poor facility at the track, all the other races they been updating from they havent had the same problems

just wait it will be bether under the touring car race

congrats you just descibed a Parma Speed 8. Every picture I have seen of this guys car it has a speed 8 on it. and according to this post by Roar Prez there are no Yokamo bodies approved.

If you win the first two mains, you must sit out the third main.

I agree the coverage is not very good, but it is better than it used to be. Shane Archer raised the bar for coverage. Tough to keep up. And we all know when there isn't internet access there isn't much you can do in a timely fashion.

The results don't even list the #laps and lap times. Perhaps they need a better program to run the races! I have a suggestion...

Adam, what kind of Harley do you have ? I grew up near Willie G's house, I am friends with Bill Davidson. Were you up here fo the 100th anniversary ?

Billy D. and I both used to race MX, and he actually raced Rex Statens old Harley Factory Motocross bike. Every race he would look at my Honda CR250 and say "I wish I could race one of those...". I don't think dirt bikes was there strong suit.

Tell me how on earth can he do 30km in 3 minutes ? I'm not saying it's the webmaster's fault, but we are 1000's+ km away from the US and we have better informations than them, it's called technology...

Haven't they ever heard that you can use your cell phone for internet access??? I mean it isnt even expensive any more, so why have to drive...for that matter, have someone stationed at a computer awaiting a cell phone call with the results, or a text message, or anything....with todays technology there are a million ways this could have been done better....just my 2 cents....

But it is still cool to get some coverage
