Sadly, after the 1/12 Euros I din't have the cash for this round, so I get to watch my mates send me pictures of their hotel and prep etc

Come on Coelho, lets see how you can go on asphalt.

That 12th Euro track looked brutal, but fun compared to the USA tracks, which are always built to accommodate 1/10 tourers
How'd you fare Skiddins

First of the Ashphalt rounds!

Going to be one to watch with the new chassis about and more importantly all the driver changes!

Will Jilles be in attendance?

I know Naoto will be there as well. Not sure about Krapp . Anyone have any information on Krapp? Who's seen Krapp? Where can I find Krapp? I love Krapp.

Pronounced "Kropp" I believe
This is a very talented driver, nice find for Team Blue

How'd you fare Skiddins
Track was a 'destoyer' when we first turned up, pop dots and nothing on the end of inflexible screwed down pipes, but after advice etc they made changes and it got better. They'd never held any 1/12 meetings before so they were on a learning curve as well.
31 out of 43 in Open Mod, car (and driver lol) got better and better.
Advice from Dave Spashett helped me gain over 0.6s per lap (0.2 of that was just changing position on driver stand ) and as usual, just as it all started to come together it was over.

How the track was when we first arrived;


And by the time we were racing on it;

I know, just playing around with his name

And yes, I do agree. He's one talented driver and hopefully he'll have a strong showing at this ETS event.

I think the internal Tamiya battle will be a good one.

Naoto vs Rheinard with identical equipment - but can Krapp trump them both?

Naoto was pretty rubbish (comparatively) at TITC and let his feelings be known about the car too by sending it full speed into boards more than once

Always helpful to have a Multi champ in your corner

Classy move
Must be nice getting paid to bin factory team built cars ...
