They have to wait for the guy to stand at the right corner with his 5yr old mobile phone. However, if you subscribe, you get the footage from the second bloke who's standing there equipped with the latest hi def webcam

Ha, you beat me to it

Pity he hasn't put the main 'ftd' list up, or the other Mod heats.

Well it makes complete sense to choose tires for the most important race of the rear that no one has ever run. That are not proven to work anywhere. And are hard to procure.

Right.....

Some pics from the warm-up including the top nine over the five minutes from the seeding rounds. Heats are being seeded on fastest three laps and there will be three rounds of qualifying on Friday and another three on Saturday (round-by-round). There have been a few tyre blow-outs but with cars clocking over 70 mph these things can happen.

Yes tire blow outs can happen. But different inserts can't. Hope the tire company can fix this problem fast. It may not be to late to switch to a proven tire. Racers may have to pay a little more. But these problems will go away. And the drivers can focus on racing
