Team Xray is scheduled to be at this event for the 1st time. It's on RC America's web site calendar. This is going to be a great race.

I thought showing you the track photo last year, you and Paolo will make it this year.... Oh well, hopefully, next year, the SNAKE will be here.

The reason DJ and Paolo won't be there, is that they'll be at a fairly important event over in Switzerland.

I definately wanted to go, but it is set to be a conflict with the 1/8 worlds this year. If there is time we will go next year.

Sorry,
