Reverse of the sedan worlds.
Kyosho sent there entire A team with there B and C team to back them up, I think that was very smart the more drivers you have at a race the better your chances. The only sponsored drivers to attend the sedan worlds were from the US we didn't even have enough pit men. I think we were not prepared and was under manned.
This race is a little different Mugen has just as many drivers as Kyosho and Serpent attending this race, they are from different parts of the world with one goal winning the worlds.

You won't get better food anywhere on this planet than in Italy and especially not in the US. (don't tell me different, I lived there for 10 years)

But then again, the US boys probably only eat at McDonalds or Burger King anyways, since those damn foreigners are not to be trusted

They took the 1/10th IFMAR WC and so far it looks like the they'll take the 1/8th except for a miracle where Bertin's team makes a mistake and he gets penalised or he decides to just crash into a wall to see what it's like. Might be possible though. In round 3 and round 6 he retired early. Maybe he did crash?? Does anyone know?

BTW Didn't Collari take the WC last time with an older Evolva? What's so magical about that car?
Ok jokes on us this must be Adrien Bertin talking because I couldn't believe someone else could make such bold statements about someone he or she probably never met...................
Hello Mr. Bertin

You should talk. You live in Germany, what do you know about good food? (don't tell me different, I've been all over Germany many times)

As no good food in the US, well, if Micky D and BK is all you eat then what do you expect?!?!

Hello going 4#1
Kind of funny in reveiwing the qualifying times I noticed out of the top ten Adrien is the only one that has never came close to repeating his best time again, infact you said "they'll take the 1/8th except for a miracle where Bertin's team makes a mistake and he gets penalised or he decides to just crash into a wall to see what it's like. Might be possible though. In round 3 and round 6 he retired early. Maybe he did crash?? Does anyone know?" just an observation.

Not quite. There is no significance of A over B like we refer to A and B mains here in the states. The A and B split of the IFMAR tree is truly a split so the A has the odd numbers 5th, 7th, 9th, 11th fastest etc, while the B gets the evens 6th, 8th, 10th, 12th, and so on. For IFMAR bump ups they take the top two of the A and B and then the next fastest 2 from wherever they ran. It is conceivable though not usual that 4 could come from the A or B with two coming from the other. From the results I have seen, usually it just works out that it is the top 3 from each of the A and B because the competition is so tight.

There are a couple of things, Americans should not join discussions about, and food is very high on that list.

As I said, I lived in the States for 10 years and all there is, is copied food from all over the world. But it all has been americanized, meaning,it all tastes the same.

Give me ONE example for an American dish, except for grits
