Please say hello to his friends and send them my best wishes from Norway. In the drama was more of the hidden kind, and it was all inside the Kyosho team. The timing bridge that caused problems for some drivers. Interesting info, thank you! Masahiko Oda, thank you for digging out those great old photos!

The Proto team used Trix motors from Air Supply, their main sponsor. Halsey followed tight for a couple of laps, and finally found enough room and opportunity to pass. I have now corrected the info above after receiving more detailed info from Jeff Maurer. In there were much talk about the very hard track surface and the limited time for practice, and in it was the Yokomo tire size controversy. The three legs were spread out between the lower finals on Thursday, and in the A-1 Jay Halsey really found the speed, and clocked his first 20 lap run.
