I think an Italian will win.

Either Collari, Picco or Christiani.

Hopefully our “Sport” will be the big winner and emerge into the mainstream’s attention.

Good luck to all!

If you look into the past it is funny to see that Collari did not perform well on the pre worlds but he is always on the top with the worlds. In Messina after 5 rounds of qualifying he had a 19th time and in the last round he managed to get a 5th time. Such a leap in the last round seems to good to be true you almost would think some illigal stuff was going on.

This year..... I would say Collari again.... But I do think Cristiani will be the man to beat.

I say all the usual Italians against Robert Peitsch.

I sure would like to see an American take it but I don't think they can do it this year. Josh seems to still be a bit behind learning the new car, though it wouldn't surprise me if he figured it out soon. Same for Toso. I don't think Kimbrow is going. Is Swauger going? If so, maybe he could pull it off. I think he is as fast as anyone in the world right now but mileage always seems to be an issue with him.

Do not forget Jilles Groskamp although I think he does not have the fastest motors but driving a car he can!

Hopefully an american or someone that lives here. Swuager could take it, maybe Paolo Morganti(plus he drives serpents), or who knows, maybe my boy Nigel Sim. Anyways, GO SERPENT!!

Jilles is not going. I spoke to him at the Turkey race and he said there were no spots and he could not get in. This is going to be my first Worlds event. I can not wait to mix it up with the top drivers from around the world. Only a few more weeks.
