yeah and the Cups and Corsas need at least 2 laps to warm up.

All depends on the time between laps I suppose, hmmm

I think they had enough time between runs, i think it was the second go round PER RUN that people had problems with.

Isty, we run the competitive laps in numerical order now, so expect at least half an hour between runs.

The R888's are a very soft, sticky tyre compared to anything else I've seen and in theory ideally suited to sprinting. They will grip at the first corner better than anything else. However, at Haynes with such tight corners the sidewalls do give a lot which effects their feel and helps to build heat. They start to feel quite soft on the 2nd lap.

Thanks guys.

I recently bought all of the above (part worn)
So going by the 30min gap, I think the R888's are probably best for Haynes next week?.

It doesn't really matter if they fall to bits considering what I paid for them :D
