7. Neils Koenekoop
8. Masami Hirosaka

And here are the top ten from the round, for reference:

1. Atsushi Hara 22/5:08.11
2. Mark Pavidis 22/5:11.43
3. Surikarn 22/5:11.81
4. Matt Francis 22/5:12.80

8. Satoshi Maesumi 21/5:01.25
9. Craig Drescher 21/5:01.84
10. Ralph Burch, Jr. 21/5:02.26

Blackstock was leading his race -- by about 1/4 a lap -- when his car inexplicably jumped an island into oncoming traffic and got absolutely obliterated by someone, I think maybe Jukka. They needed multiple marshals to pick up all the pieces...

Regarding some people not being where you'd think they'd be, e.g. Kinwald, you'd have to be here and watch the races to understand. Take Ralph Burch for example, who has gotten wasted in just about every start of every heat that he's been in. With the quality of the drivers, it's incredibly difficult for anybody, even the best drivers out there, to work their way back through the field.

Consistent finishes in this race are really an accomplishment!

Hirosaka has broken a few times, Barry has had a few odd runs. They are both right on pace but just haven't had luck in their favor. That is such a big factor here...

Wish we could see some video though.....all this would make a lot more sense, because it looks so spread out from 1st to last on paper

It is pretty much between the Top 4. Best Marc can do is 9 points at this point i think with a win. The other 3 can get 8 point totals with a win in the last round. Just depends how the heats are stacked.

Shane is so right about luck and the start playing a massive part in this format of racing (great coverage - cheers). At last years Euro Race, Craig D was so hooked up off the line is was un-true, and that made him real hard to beat. Others could lap just as quick, but weren't getting the starts.

Start format is usually 2 lines (1 or 2 m apart) and then going with a final's style tone. So you get 8 cars all trying to get to the first corner right on each other. There is usually at least 1 or 2 cars that clash and don't get there!

You would think with such a big important race that Tamiya would acually invest in the use of a webmaster, with the live results. Not that I have an axe to grind but, usually other bigtime tracks and races do it.

Oh well, futureal you probably are doing much better job than Tamiya ever would!

Keep up the great work!

Any pics of Blackstock's "obliterated" car? What a bummer for him.

Probably due to the fact that they are currently using every bit of the personnel they have to run the event. Or they have other reasons why they don't do it. Reasons that you, me and everybody else don't know. Besides the Team Orion website does have updates on the race. One thing for sure though, is that they will have full listing and pictures of what happened during the race on Tamiya, Inc. & Tamiya America website.

Besides, Futureal is doing an awesome job with the updates.

It's not a Tamiya race, they just let Reedy use their track.

If anybody, then Reedy /AE should have coverage on their website.
