Will a lot of these top guys head over to IIC since they are already in the US or is that not a big enough race for them?

There was mention of top drivers attending this race in the IIC thread.

Spoke to Hara Hardman and Umino and they are taking a well deserved break.

Kind of a bummer to see so few American flags in the top positions at an event in our home country...

Can't wait to hear why they were over 1 second off pace per lap at the first half of the run....
Something was certainly off with the tyres at the start of the run.

Despite being hot perhaps the track wasn't warm for the first run to enough to get the best out of the tyres without the use of warmers.

Congratulations to the Yok, TRF and Xray teams for making the Main A.

Another car of interest was the Kyosho whilst not making the main A Krapp with the new car looked very good at times.

PS what was the control tyre compound, rim and insert?
