A1 was a bit of a hackfest. Looks like Moore has the speed to challenge Naoto but by the time he got through all the carnage, Naoto was gone. Fantastic run for Rick Howhart to get third. He was a bit slow up front but poured it on late. Groskamp looks pretty quick too but can't do but so much starting back in the pack.

Big props to Rick! Nice to see a guy in the final that is not backing the car into the corner and sideways on exit.

Retro smooth driving at its finest...start smooth and slow and pour it on in the last minutes....go get them RICK!

A2 sees a CRC 1-2 with Moore winning and Rheinard 2nd, Naoto 6th. That makes Moore the leader going into A3. Moore and Groskamp have the speed to beat Naoto, this is going to be interesting.

If my figuring is correct, Naoto, Moore or Rheinard could take it with a win no matter what anyone else does. Everyone else would need a win and some help.

1. Ask a foam manufacturer to make a special batch of foam for you for the worlds.
2. Have your sponsor pay for the expenses for said foam.
3. Have a past world champion mount them for you.
4. Soak them in super secret sauce for a year in a temp controlled environment.
5. Cut them down to one and done.
6. Your now ready to race.

Simple.

A3 goes to Volker in another hackfest, Naoto 2nd which should give him the title on tie-breaks.

I believe it will be:

1. Naoto
2. Moore
3. Volker
