Re: Fair representation or...

Hi Senechal, No discussions yet about the quotas. That's way too early. A guess: Japan will get many seats, Europa about the same number (if it will take place in Europe). And probably a small number for players outside these regions. This all to be decided by the Japanese organizations and EMA. About qualification: most likely like it was done for the WMC 2010 in Holland. Or maybe different. This all will be decided in due time… Martin Rep
