I foresee a lot of "airing of grievances" as cars traction roll their way into the fence, and numerous "feats of strength" as top drivers battle for TQ...

Can't wait for this one - this could easily be the highlight of my holiday season!

Can not wait for this race. Going to be a blast, and I like the idea of using qualifying points. It rewards consistency.
