Default 1/10 Practice in Frosty Conditions

Quick bit of footage I took in December at the first round of our Winter series.

Shot about 20 mins before the meeting started proper.

Practice in Frost
As our race director says;

'Real Racers Do It Outdoors'

Or not enough traction sauce on the asphalt so that your shoes come off as you walk accross the track.

I don't think so, we usually have less damage in very cold conditions but I think that's partly due to the slower speeds involved.
