Small Update direct from Victor in China.
Victor, Sean and Johnny all made it thru to the Top 8, but then all beaten out. Victor went down to the Greddy RX7 55/45, and Sean had lost 3rd gear so was taken out. Johhny made it thru in his borrowed S14 but again was pipped. Crowd was about 5000 which was capacity, and punters paid $100 a shot to come and see the event.
