Go over to Europe and kick some A$$!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!:eek: :eek:

I could only hope that it is a main that consists of Buef,Chicky,PA,Benny,Les,Larry,Forrest,and Skinner or any other American.

But really the best thing that could happen is that it is truely a International race with the best Group7 racers.

Maybe JPVR gets his wish of Buef,Chicky and PA against Horky,Korec, and Shone.

It is our own olympics right here on OWH.

I would like to personally thank JPVR for putting on this race I think it is a great thing and it is just to bad that this is the last one. We all might not agree with JPVR but maybe its because we don't understand him.

JPVR thank you from a no-name racer from the Chicago IL, USA.

guy's. I spoke to PA the other night and he told me it sound's like it will be a drivers's track. He has three different cars setup, with different body's (some with more down force.) He is even setting up a steel car.(I am not sure if it has movement in it or not). He feels that a softer compound of tire may be needed,(Starting with 26's). He said the racers are going to have to modifiy there controllers with banana clips to connect to the track. Just a few insights to share.

J P, I would like to thank you for organizing a great race, I know you enjoy it but you put on a great show and a very successful race with a huge amount of effort on your part. This type of race puts slotracing in a very positive light. I would only hope that we can continue this concept for at least one race per year. Is very difficult to get 50 plus open racers all going in the same direction at one time, something like rounding up tomcats.

The format of the race was new to the US racers but I think we dealt with it just fine. The track was probably the toughest that any of us currently race on and by the end of the open race it was actually it was in good condition. Racers were turning times in the 2.1 second range with some dropping into the 2.0 range.

We would like to see Piki and Youri at the USRA Nats in 2005 at Buena Park. I understand they are planning to attend. They are great kids and would be a welcome addition to the Nats. We will see to it that they are well taken care of while the States.

One last thing, when we arrived at the Newark airport Ckicky and I headed directly to the food court, he had two Chili Dogs, I had a Cheese Steak and a Coke with ice in it. Chicky said he had to have some real food.

Sincerely,
Larry Blanton
