Yuichi Kanai wins 2006 Kyosho Masters

Kyosho Masters Podium

This years Kyosho Masters race, held in Nagano, is over and at the end it was former World Champion Yuichi Kanai who won the Pro event, ahead of fellow Japanese driver Atsushi Kawamoto with Raul Peris Eugenio of Spain rounding out the top 3. Of course the racing at this type of event in itself isn’t so important, but good for building team moral as well as building a few egos and settling some inter team rivalry.
