If it wasn't for Naoto it would be really close between Rheinard, Hagberg, Groskamp and Volker. Watched Naoto pull off the leg 2 win from last place in Germany...three cars overtaken in one corner...wow!

Allez the three Brits in the A main overnight.

Anyone know what body Groskamp is using? It's not an AMR or Bomb R.

It looks like a BA Mohawk to me, which would be logical given that Mobers has been running one. Naoto has locked up Pole with 1 round remaining. His 2 run total is a staggering 1.5 laps better than Giles.

Thats true...cost is still a factor, but we as racers keep buying the $500 cars..... Good luck to all the racers!
I miss foam tires to, maybe a limit on how small you can cut them down so you could save money may work.

Nahhh, the regs are fine. You can run whatever size you like at club races. Big races are expensive, one set of tires per run is hardly unreasonable for a four day National or World level event IMHO.....

I see Dirla's car (circled in pic below), but I don't see Dirla. I think that maybe Dirla PhotoShop'ed his car into the pic.
