“This year’s Worlds Warm up/Worlds is to be held at the same track RCS in Thailand as the renowned TITC. The race turn out was a little low, but the competition was just as high as it could have been. Many of your known racers were in attendance with the likes of: Marc Rheinard, Andy Moore, Atsushi Hara, Victor Wilck, Shinosuke Adachi, Masami Hirosaka and myself. The track was newly paved and had a new layout that had never been run on to date.
