Nice ride indeed haha. The guy he practises with in the first vid seems pretty good xD Also I was wondering in the 2nd vid, is the multiball feeder wearing safety goggles @ 1:45? Guess he doesn't wanna get hit in the face by one of those cannon shots from Kalinikos :D

This was awesome!
Very nice to see Kreanga like a normal guy.. Nice car btw :)
Anyways - Dan if you get to interview him, ask him, what happened..
He was nowhere, then .. whopa, he wins European top 12 and then again.. nothing..
Just now Austrian open..
I hope he will be on european championships.. ;)

Can't wait to watch this when I get home. I remember a similar thing following Maze a few years back after his injury.

Yeah I did mate. More of this! That is definitely what our sport needs. Let's find a way to get to know the pro's a bit better. Interviews are great but nothing beats a video. It'll make people more inclined to follow the sport and support their favourite players, go to the english open ect.
