Thanks for all of the support everyone, I would like to thank everyone that helped get me here, that list is way to long. A special thanks to
Steve Villanueva: for getting me here
Robert Morris: Tuned my speedo the whole weekend, and his partner worked on my car to get it right.
Taka(japan): The guy from manilla that helped me with the setup from day 1

And thank you to the rest of you, I wish I would've had motor to get 1st but it just wasn't there, Someone else will have to bring home the Gold, cause all I got is Silver!

Christian,
I noticed your not holding the Lambo body, did you end up switching to the NSX? The NSX is my favorite on carpet or asphalt!
You and your dad deserve all the credit, getting to this point you can't substitute lots of practice, set-up and just sheer driving skill that put you and your dad (yes your dad) both of you did the hard work preparing for the race and this is the payoff!
Man when I grow up I want to learn to drive just like you!
Both of you need to come to the track this weekend and bring your trophy with you. I would like to take pictures and get your autograph.
Enjoy the rest of your trip in Japan!
Talk to both of you soon!

P.S. We will be opening the track Friday and Saturday, weather permitting!
FYI

Very good to hear you took 2nd Christian!!! Awesome qualifiers... watched a few, but had to do an errand so I wasn't able to get to see the finals.

Anyhow, congratulations my friend! BTW, read that you had help from Taka (from the Philippines)... cool guy huh! I met him back in '07 in the Philippines when I raced TAC. Very talented driver... I placed 2nd to him also that time haha! He probably would have remembered me if you mentioned my name.

Now that it's all over... go have fun and enjoy the rest of your trip.

Quick question: Does the carpet tire rule exception for sedans also apply to minis? Do we have to run S Grips there too?
