Which, I assume, means you will be running neither blacks nor blues...

When I made my comment earlier about Derek, I was referring solely and exclusively to his driving ability.

Default Disqualification!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

LATEST NEWS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I heard Deven White will not be allowed to win any prizes including the trip to Japan due to his employment with Orion/PeakRacing and he collects an income from Gyro's hobbies in Laguna Hills, CA. I am just passing on the info as I read in the rules if this is true about him then the rules state he can not compete. If I were him I would protest.

Good luck to all...........and God (Tamiya) Speed

Ok, now we're getting a little carried away.......

Straight from the Tamiya rules:
["Factory Team" drivers (drivers who are, or have ever been, employed or supported by a factory, manufacture or distributor as part of a factory racing team) are not allowed to compete for prizes or awards.

The hardcore factory sponsored driver may not participate. An example of a racer that Tamiya America would not allow to compete would be the Jimmy Jacobson's, Josh Numan's and David Jun's of the RC industry. These types of drivers are clearly supported by a factory and would not be eligible to compete as Tamiya America supports their racing careers in all the above mentioned points.]

I read this as more of a "hired gun" that is paid to race, period. Not taking anything away from Devin White's abilities, but I'm not convinced he falls into this category.

The discussions up to this point were that drivers with a lot of experience and sponsorships (affiliations with companies) should consider participating in the GT1 class. No disqualifications.

Let's settle down and get back to the important details.......

BATTERIES?????

Agreed. Last time I checked, Deven was not a paid or sponsored driver. Working for a hobby shop (Gyro) or a manufacturer (Orion) shouldn't be considered any different than working for anyone else, unless it's Tamiya.

Fred and Larry, please just make sure that his battery packs are truly spec legal if we wind up running an Orion-supplied product.
