...maybe Paul can answer this:


Why are there only three US factory drivers at this event? I would have expected more than that, since it is a 'World Cup'...

Tires: Take Off CS27
Wheels:Team Orion hard
Inserts: Team Orion JB ultra light blue inserts.

There only three of us U.S. drivers, but all the top European drivers are here including Marc Rheinard. The track is great and the facility is awesome. It is the best venue I have ever been to.

Agree...
All fast Orion/Peak drivers are there, but most other european teams are not very well represented.

Still a good event tough. Shame I had to cancel last minute.

The funny thing is those AA cells have more capacity than the Sub-C's we ran just a few short years ago!
