And a big THumbs up to Collari with that well deserved 9th title. It looks like he faked everyone out into thinking that the 1 stop strategy wasn't going to work but it awas his huge ace in the hole........................................ ..

Paolo & Josh had a mechanical problem take them out while leading the semi. Congratulations to the team for a super showing.

RCA - No, Collari had a Serpent tank, steering blocks and some other different parts on his car.

Collari, Shimo, Bertin used the M3. Not sure what Tosso ran as he had both in the pits all weekend.

My final report from the WC is up on www.cefx.net now.

jdesoto - Great to see you at the race (good ipod mix too..lol)!! For sure the US team had a strong showing and silenced the keyboard hero's out there who like to take shots at the US drivers who are more than capable with good equipment. (Stefan, where are you??...) I think at next year's 1/10 WC it will be even better with Ralph, Paul and several others also being in the mix. We are all working very hard so it would be great for any of the US drivers to finally bring a 1/10 or 1/8 WC home to the US. Less than 1 year and I can't wait!!

I think it was... I didn't hear the name "raywood", but the speaker said there were 8 cameras pointed at the track and the result will be on xxx website in 3/4 weeks.

Yes, Ray Wood was there. Yes, he took crazy amounts of video. Yes, he will have a DVD of the event soon. He has an uber cool new camera that he was using that got some incredible shots.

Congrats to the whole U.S. team on a great effort. Too bad lady luck was not smiling on all of us!
