I wonder how much a frame and canvas enclosure would cost for that track. Like Yatabe has over one of their tracks

One of the guys I know, who is there, has said that in free practice lap times were around 2s slower than last year!!

Suddenly the timetables are showing practice 1 as starting at 4pm

From the reports it sounds like they've put down some Stafford spec tarmac

If you read the report on ets.redrc.net, it sounds like the fresh batch of Ride tires is goofy, so they extended free practice so that people could get used to them.

An interesting decision Ronald has made is to charge his battery to 8 volts, which while it reduces top speed he feels it will help him in the early part of the run reducing the power in the low traction conditions.
Well, that's one way to reduce wheel spin!

Is Volker driving out of his skin, or is that RV tuned-BD7 not as bad in low grip as has been suggested ?

Looks like X-ray and Yokomo is showing good versatility by having good showings in both high grip and lower grip conditions.
