Default Johnny Tomlinson Racing in Class 1 this weekend in the Abu Dhabi

Anyone else following what is essentially the only offshore circuit with any legitimacy, resources and descent organization...

Class 1 is racing over the weekend, early weekend anyway...

And Johnny T. is there although looks like they flew him in pretty late, so II doubt he could do a whole lot for setup anyway he came in first in qualifying:

but finished fourth in both race 1 & 2, Victory winning both;

http://www.class-1.com/newsdetails.asp?id=1048




My guess is once Johnny works and sets up this boat properly to his liking he will do even better. Congrats.





Next race Norway in mid-July...

Comment:

All it takes is lots and lots of money. Recipe for event...bragging rights for your country...a boat load of ego and cash to back it up and let's face it Class 1 is cheaper than horses for these guys.

Is it a world class event you bet it is... anyone even close uhhhh not by a long shot.

Footnote:
I get a little pissed that the WPPA/UIM can't even post up video link to the events live. I mean how hard would it be to post a link to a live video or at a minimum tape delay replay for the time zones. If that is too much trouble how about every race in order of completion... being posted on their site rather than hunt and search for it on Frodes blog or You Tube. Carryon!

It is a long flight takes a day or so to shake the Jet lag.

i wish JT the best but Victory team is hard to beat. MOST of the teams are running there boats and power. I even think they run Abu Dhabi's program.
