I'm still keeping my fingers crossed for Yannick. Of course if Drake pulls it off I won't complain.

I saw an interview with Ty and his dad. I got the impression that the whole Thailand experience is making him uptight. I think he will do well, but I don't think he's got it for 60 minutes. If Jesse wakes up on time, he'll go top 10. Hara seems cool and has a plan. If no breakages, he could repeat.

His runs have been really consistent but his lap times have been all over the place. He's had some blazing fast laps and some much slower laps. Also some issues in a couple rounds. I think Drake's been the most consistent overall all week. He's been running smooth, not the fastest on the track but only had a few bad wrecks as compared to everyone else running blazing fast laps and wrecking all the time. The fuel mileage will certainly be a big advantage for him as well. I think this one is going to be very interesting!

Talking about sheer pace..................it is Tebo...............even he have to fill it up in the heats.................

Drake had the advantage with fuel on 10mins + but with the clock - Tebo on 8-10 seconds faster on average...................per 10 mins.............the last refuel for Tebo might be enough to be in the front should Tebo and Drake fighting.

Don't forget hara..............maifield and cav..and many more...............

This is gonna be the best WC to date.............can't wait.

I would prefer Drake to win - Losi and Novarossi...........

It would be spectacular if Hara wins. He would be the only back to back champion in the history of IMFAR 1/8 offroad.

On another note. I wonder why Hara doesn't get the amount of press of the others. Defending champion and qualifier #2 and all liverc can talk about is Tebo and others far down the list. I think many people are still in denial over his win last time around. If he wins, in your face Kyosho/Losi/etc.

Damn that's huge. Isn't there a rule that the furtest point can't be more than 100ft away from the driversstand?
