It is fun to win the big races, but ultimately we must make the hobby fun and attainable for everyone... not just the talented few.
In my all RC life, i've never but never seen yet a Touring race with 800+ entries in US.........If you refer to the snowbirds, it's not a reference because there are too many class from Pan car to Touring and each class got Stock - 19T and Modified......

After all, i'm pretty sure Eurasia races has more entries because when you compare we can see that they race only 1 class aka Mod...

And you can't compare USA to Europe or even Asia...but if you really want to compare ,.....you will see that they have more racers in a big race than you got in US for the same class.......And you normally have a biger average of racer so........don't compare when argument can't be found.......

And i won't fight on the debate that Foam is easier than rubber but US racer wake up and stop find excuses who cost 1 cent.......because Euro and Asian racers come to US to beat you in the same pace and with your own rules........So it's time to change things before things change you.........My 2 cents....

The market does not revolve around racing. It revolves around participation. This is not a U.S. versus the world debate. We have some of the premier events here in the U.S. (Cleveland, Snowbirds, etc.) So what if they are not just touring car. Why should that matter? As long as the interest is strong and people continue to race, who cares what country the winner is from?

Masami and Marc could have had a coming together and Karn could have been the cause of it or by a completly separate incident he maybe was driving unsportingly.

If you notice Surikarn Chajdejsurija got a stop and go penalty. Could he have possibly been involved in the accident.
