Well, it was an all niter as I took the day off work to enjoy.. And enjoy I did, specially watching you put in a solid one Leigh.. Nice work man!!!

Great to see Blake and Tim put in a solid round. Chuffed seeing Gary in pit lane and our boys doing us proud in amongst the worlds best drivers. What happened to Tim and Blake in the last round, they were non-starters?

Massami's interview on LiveRC was awesome, he's a gentle soul and hopefully a future ambassador for IFMAR in our region and that's a really good thing for all of us.

Snowy, hope you accept some time up in the box with Charlie as it'd be really good to hear what you've got to say about the event in general.

Fun highlights were camera shots of Atsushi Hara working on his buggy in the pits. Watching Dario lay down some fast ones with the Capricorn, and Peitsch driving solidly for the local Mugen supporters.

Other countries.

Seeing Collari come to a roll at the last corner and watching Sabrina have the boys all barracking for her while she put in some stunning laps. Marco Muller and the Swiss supporters crushed with the cruelty of RC racing as he was driving like a demon on very loose track conditions.

Impressive drives by Flavio for the Brazilians, Morgante for USA and so many other drivers all in the run showing how competitive it is with only 1 second after 10 minutes of racing being a huge gap.

Hopefully weather holds off, as usual 11am runs seem to be the quickest, and glad the sauce is back where it belongs on the Hot Dog stand as anyone who thinks that the top runners need unfair advantages is unfair on their dedication and skill to our support needs to think again.

Huge thanks to LiveRC for really stepping up the show and giving us an opportunity to enjoy our Aussies and the worlds best strut their stuff .

Bring on the finals... yet another all niter planned in Brisbane.

Bravo and Viva RC!!!


PS: Slo.. Forgot to call you at work, building a website, chat tonight about a Worlds get together, my connect is borderline.. we'll sort it out

PPS: Anyone pondering over LiveRC All Access Pass being worth it.. IT IS!!

All Good H. I bought a HDMI cable today so i can hook the laptop up to the tv and the sound through my Yamaha home Theatre, it should be awesome.

I am bummed i slept through me alarm as i wanted to watch the last round of qualifying but you get that. Tonight should be pretty good. I am cool with you and the boys coming to mine of you want to do that....Will give the wife a break from all the RC talk at your place and the boys can have a crack on my simulator if they want. But i guess we will talk about that tonight.

Based on facts and numbers, the guys in green improved and the guys in red lost their pace for one reason or another.
Funny to see a lot of USA guys going down but also Collari and RickV, both guys with high expectations. In the last run of RickV I saw at 2 minutes after the start a very high laptime, I think he had some troubles or an accident or else he was on a very good result.

Also funny to see that most Novarossi sponsored driver show their cars with the old Flash engine. Is there something wrong with the new one, are they not available yet or is it that the older engines are in a way faster?
