Did the mechanics at the end of each heat, needed to put the fuel back in the can they took it from, or did they put it back in a trash can, and was this "used" fuel, re-used, or not?....

When there for example two different production batches are mixed or when the fuel is not shaken well before handing out. This could mean that the right mixture can be corrupted and that the fuel is not exactly the mixture what it should be."

He says it: 'almost always' is quite something different as 'always'.
Rangule did not suffer any consequenses of re-used fuel because he did 'almost' never used it!

What if he found himselve given almost always re-used fuel? We'll never know....

The only way to be sure it was a fresh can is to pull out the air-seal from the opening, if there was no seal you can not be sure if the can was fresh or was filled with fuel from the bottles.

Listen, You can add anything to the fuel, Have special tires that never loose any rubber, all the light weight stuff you can get.

But the big factor is here you still have to drive the car for 1 hour and finish ahead of everyone else.

I say Congrats to everyone who made the A-Main and special Congrats to Lamberto Collari for his win. After all how many people can say they are 8 time World Champion?

Hi Guys, back to normal after 2 weeks of traveling. I will like to thank all of you for posting nice messages for myself, our drivers and team. Thanks you very much. We really appreciate the support.

First of all congrats to Lamberto and his team. Being able to pull it for the 8th time shows how good he is. He definitely has the driving skills, the preparation, the logistics, the support, the cold blood, the strategy and the luck. So he has the total package and for the 8th time is showing to the world!!

On our side we are very happy with the result. We did everything but winning the event, I know. Itís a pity, and I am sorry if our followers fell disappointed in some way. But still we are proud with the outcome. We Tq the event and Massimo was the fastest in any single run, we had 4 cars in the final and came second place, recovering a lap with the fastest car in the 1 hour main event. We had 7 cars in the semifinals and so on. Quite an accomplishment I must say. Many stories can be told about this year WC, many ifs........ what if Cristiani did not had the problem at the star, what if we where able to get the tires since day one instead of 4 days later, etc. etc. etc But you can't live with the ifs...

Congrats to the whole Team for the effort and performance. We have a good car now, which we will keep developing and improving to make it better everyday...
