Sorry Pato, no video.. wish I had. It was actually a great event. During the day we had timing for also other scales, 1/10 and 1/8 onroad and 1/5th. So everybody on the track enjoyed the event and helped us racing as well.
Ipanema sponsored us great prizes so it was a perfect day for everybody attended. Unfortunately the Neste Rally WC was at the same weekend in Jyväskylä, Finland, so we lacked a few of the GT drivers since they were spectators there upper north. But all in all, GT racing is a great sport & fun for everyone, we had many novice drivers who enjoyed as much as we more experienced.

Hi there Raman,
I think both were driving GRP soft(est) which also a very good tyre. It's the "spec" tyre in our GT series. In this open race we allowed all brands though.
The difference with Ipanema was that GRP takes 1-2 laps before it starts working, Ipanema does not require it, it worked right from the beginning. But Juho was very fast all the way since he was the TQ, too. Just a bit unlucky not to win the 1st place as the shock spring "plate" flew off in a collision. Peter was very constant and that shows in the result.
Myself, I went directly to A-main, but was marshalling the B-main so didn't have much time to check my car before the main. Right after the start I had to pull off because my center drive shafts were loose and lost many laps/time. But that's racing and need to be careful, I wasn't clearly. Anyhow, it was so great and 45min final is great, too!

Mika,

Thats been my experience with PMTs as well. They require a little more time to warm up much like 1:1 tyres.

They come with the foam like that in the Ipanema tires. Not sure what kind of material that is.

Are the foams one piece or a strip that needs to be glued together?
