posted: Jun 4th, 2013 The second meet in Germany last weekend, the Northern German Championship 2013 in Kassel, was completely weathered out. It was expected to become the first AAA Class showdown between the new Gamma Ray lineup and the Usual Suspects.

Germany was literally under water, almost all across the country. It was worse in the southern parts, and the Nord Cup took place in Hohenlockstedt, close to Hamburg.
Saturday was completely weathered out, and the meet management... (more)
