We've heard about how our Aussies have done. Not as good as last year but they certainly would have given their all. Ronald Volker looks to be UBER strong in GT1, but you'd kinda expect it from the 2003 F1 World Champ!

It's a shame that past US winners can't go back to participate...not even to consult or help the team. It's such a unique track that past experience does come into play. In any event, congratulations to all of the winners and tear it up during the after race party. I'd feel let down if you guys do not collectively finish two of those gigantic bottles of sake.

So the rules are not the same for all countries? Thatīs not good but who decide that? But I have to say I donīt know anything on rules and qualification for the Tamiya championship races. From what I saw at that website it seems to me qualification in the heats went with fastest lap, is this right? And whatīs going in the finals, is this for a fixed number of laps or what?

I believe that during qualifiers they go by fastest lap in all of your runs. You can put in a baller lap and be in a good spot for the main events. During the mains, it's set for a predetermined number of laps (23, 25, 30 etc) and whoever crosses the line first, wins. The others race out the lap that their on and finish accordingly. It's a pretty neat system.

Not to sure about their On track performances, but it seems the Yanks are dominating the off track scene, apparently they are the liveliest international team. Ill have to give the Aussie guys a slap for letting thier country down in the drinking stakes.

Last year the Yanks had nothing, Rabara was sitting in a corner talking to himself half way through the night. l

Whatever their results, im sure everyone would have had fun.
