Track isn't that new, they've been testing/racing on it for ~5 years... They just recently re-painted the curbs. Great facility.
Pretty hot day there today by their standards, ~90 degrees

I think everybody should assume that at all times, a pro driver is testing the next generation of car for whatever company they support. That's what we should want, not someone making changes in a lab without real track experience.

That said, what's new on the Awesomatix?

The problem is that you're posting all these changes without facts and basing it on what?

I saw posts of different bulkheads, chasis, upperdeck, shocks, and shock tower with is a totally brand new car....

Hell, I can't figure out how the other teams can't close the gap if they know all these changes yokomo is doing?

Mark R. IMO is the best touring driver in the world and he is struggling to keep pace with Volker which shows Yokomo is a step ahead of the game.

Ah, found it.

With new parts arriving for the A700 last night with the carís designer Oleg Babich, which help prevent torque steer on the all shaft drive chassis, Sudhoff said the car is getting better and better as they find what is the best combination of using the new parts with regular parts on the car.

Let's drop this chassis talk and making and clarifying points and this and that..It's BORING.

Back on topic.
I can not wait to see the mains! My money is on Rheinard, I think his track record shows he's the fastest guy on asphalt.

What's up with some of the drivers complaining about the troubles with the handout tires? I hope it doesn't taint the results, even the qualifying results.

Some guy posted a link to live timing earlier, that was very useful.

They need an after dark under the lights round of qualifying.... Do any of the ETS tracks have lights? Chassis sparks FTW! Fresh set of specifically allocated tires so no one sits it out.

Harper will be at West London this weekend for our third BRCA national.
If he wins, he's won the championship with two rounds still left
