hi there...

it was indeed a fun event, even if racing format was kind of weird and not too exciting all the time. but for the 1st time it was nice and the facility is extremely good, we'll come back if there's a 2nd edition...

@greg: did you visit the "golden dragon" again sunday night?
I still wonder how a chinese guy with only one hand eats with chopsticks...

@spashett: did nemo have a good trip back home?

@oj: hope you'll remember how your a4 looked like before thomas and peter had it...

We had the opportunity to attend a Supercross event here last night and David Vuillimen made everyone look like scrubs. It was pretty cool and there were a lot of Euro Hotties. I will be posting some of the photos later.

Greg and I got home safely last night. We are back at work today incase anyone needs to get ahold of us. The race was really fun and there was allot of fast people there.

Here is the motor set-up we used at the race:

12x1 Spashett armature, Medium/Hard springs, Sprint Edge brushes, 9mm of timing, with a final drive ratio of 8.1

Was there a 12-turn limit in place? Or did the track suit "slower" motors?

Well done to everyone, especially Peak/Orion & Marc for dominating, and all the UK guys who did great!

That's a mistake due to the entry list datas. Hönigl, Spashett and Fost used the new JRX-S.

How did the scoring work out for this race? It looked like Steen had better results than Mark? I know they had the same # of wins after throwouts. In the US the tie break is the next best throw out which would have given the win to Steen. Did they use fastest times as the first tie break?
