You know who you are!!!

As for no comments about F1, probably because people knew that the "50/50" drivers would be allowed to run F1 as was the case with Mr. Arluck up North since GT-1 was not going to be a trip class.

At the end of the day, it is Tamiya's decision who to allow to compete in which classes and the driver and their family who is staking their conscience and their reputation if they are knowingly skirting the rules.

Good luck in whichever class you race.
Thank you Kevin for your concern for not only my conscience but my families reputation.... I can't thank you enough. But let me put you at ease ..... their both doing just fine. I wish you an everyone the best of luck and were looking forward to another awesome TCS..... Let the games begin

R u sure that conscience is clear? Hehhe. Seriously, all of us are in a way sort of a TCS family right? We are all eyeing for that big prize. I myself gave up a while back and i know despite the fact it is hopeless. Now I'm at it dreaming again specially now I have more time. Christian and Alex has been there since and they deserve the chance for Japan. Can you drop sponsorship for a weekend so we don't have this issue anymore?
