Yes, and looks pretty quick too. He had a couple bobbles that cost him several seconds.

What we need is for the darn rain to stop. My hotel is right across the street from the track and it hasn't stopped yet.

European racers are more custom to rain due to there climate. The US as whole has hotter and dryer weather than Europe. If the US had weather like Seattle all year round. then you might see more races held under wet conditions. Same reason why 6 inches of snow in Europe shuts everything down. Have that here in the US and it's time to break out the sled.


Pass you soon...

Why is there no live coverage or at least some decent updates throughout the day? It's ridiculous how we can't follow the days racing of such a big race. SMH.

REDCUP RACING was going to broadcast "live " video and sound , but we told we could not do it because live rc was going to do it.

so much for that !!!!
