Tamiya TT01 FIA GT1 GTR

I am one of about seven Americans that watch FIA GT1 racing. Some obscure cable channel must have the broadcasting rights here in the US because I have to watch the races the next day instead of live streaming. I still watch because I love racing. My favorite car to watch is the Corvette. I think the Corvette C6R is one of the best looking race cars the United States has ever produced. Those who follow GT1 know that my favorite car usually gets punted to the back of the field by a bully Aston Martin. One car that has been standing up to those British bullies is the GTR. This car has a presence like Shaq. Look at the crowd; do you see the huge guy standing above everyone else? That's him. One of the main reasons I love skylines, is because of their size. They are the Robbie Morales of the racing world, big guys that ball like the little ones.
To be honest I like the JRM team better this season but hey those cars are a few decals away from this one. I have noticed a lack of current GT bodies available. That is sad news because GT1 and GT3 have been amazing this season and probably have won some new fans. I should be talking about the car but if you don't know what a TT01 is by now then you more than likely have no idea what I am talking about anyways. Those who do, look at the pics and imagine getting beat by a Corvette C6R. Especially since it will only happen in dreams this year.

If you know the other seven, I'm number 8... I watched it since the first season (only two I know) and I the GT3 and the other series done by Ratel which are all good, if most people don't know about them.

He is trying to come to the US with the series so maybe by 2013 that will happen. If you didn't know WTCC will be in California this year.
