Are the Tamiya Worlds this weekend? If so is there any coverage anywhere? Good luck to everyone going this year.

We have busy day when we show up for practice. The Ebbor body is not allowed for standing shock setup. It is lucky the Tamiya international team help Julian find the Lexus sc body that work out good. So i have to cut, paint and apply minimum label in about an hour. It save the day. Thanks to the Tamiya international team.

1st qualifier started out well. I was leading, I had best pace in the track. Something we didn't take into consideration was the people who had walked onto the track for the opening ceremony just 10 minutes earlier. My car ended up coming around a few times, costing me the qualifier. Ended 6th.

http://youtu.be/Cf4JsF1y-Pg
Second qualifier started well, once again I had great pace, but I got caught between someone else's mistake. Two cars collided in front of me and one of them drove onto the track right in front of me and ended up sticking me on the wall, costing me a good chunk of seconds. I ended up setting fast lap and catching a few cars, ending 7th in the qualifier, and 5th overall adding both sessions up in qual points.

Third qualifier started very poorly. Car was loose, and I drove badly, getting my tires dirty of several occasions. I managed to reel it back, not making mistakes, once the tires came in and I started driving better. Nothing really notable happened. Finished 2nd. Still 5th according to qual points. One qualifier remaining this morning let's hope for a front row start

Nathan Weir 8th place (I think) in GPX -GT (our GT1 class) in 1st A main.. Had some bad luck in traffic. Started 5th. English announcer only would say how far Nathan was behind the car in front of him, not his position so finishing position is a guess. Camera also focuses on the leader only so you can't see the rest of the field. Bummer.
