Default who will win..

i went through the whole qualifying details and only found 1 or 2 other guys who tried and manage the do the 1 pitstop but they're timings were not very competitive, on the higher 20s bracket range..

guess collari has and found something special to be 2nd and just 3 secs off Pietsch TQ's timing. it's up to Pietsch and his pitman to be super fast for an hour to beat Collari..

I will be really hard to make 5 min in the race especially when tires starts going down... I think most will be pitting at 4:30 mark

I think Robert will have pitstops earlier than 4:30, maybe even at 4:00

He had the same strategy, 2 pits for 10 minutes while most of the people can do 5 minutes on a tank.

He was pitting really often in BumodGP final and its seems to be more often on Lostallo than our track.

We all know that Collari is the man in hour mains, personally i think Collari over Pietch, i think he will break under pressure if Collari is breathing down his neck VIVA ITALIA & KYOSHO

Collari has to stop not so often in final, it will be his Ace.
my own hope is, that Michael Salven will win the 1/2 Final and can take the title. He is a happy boy/men, has allways a friendly smile and a fantastic car-control. He is on international top since more than 20 years, and i think, he should crown his career with a world champion title. I hope, he has not problems again with his engine, so as at the german championchip this year in hildesheim. he was very very fast, but his engine blocked his way to final...
greetings from Bavaria
Leichtmetall
Michael is fast, and hopefully he does not have radio problems again, which he does almost in every BIG races.

My money is on Robert and Collari.

Who knows.. maybe the 1:10 champion and ex champion might make top 10 too.

Depends on the strategy already.. its about distances over time now...

making use of speed to make up for the time.

In Red RC report, robert has been working out to last the whole duration. I think that is an advantage also. U need to be alert for hour long main.

Default final..

interesting also from the pictures form RedRC, not many guys using the new exhaust cooler.. but the old chamber type.

for the final, it will be Pietsch, Collari and Picco who i'm sure will be hungry after just missing out in Mexico '97 to Collari if i remember correctly, fighting it out.

anyone knows of any website providing live feeds for todays finals ..
