Can I raise another point ..

What about tyre warmers (not for wets obvs)

But if we are on a mixed grid and half are going into the corner with steaming hot rubber and half with ice cold blocks ...

Is that not going to be cause for concern?

just sayin (expecting to be shot down in flames)

I'd rather do without myself

It's all in the mind, by the time you actualy get off the grid your tyres are hardly luke warm.

I've never run warmers and I like not needing electricity

Tyres

Here's another thought; if we do run wets that means that we wouldn't have to run an all weather tyre (road style) in the dry, so does that open up the possibility of a more track or race style control tyre?
Of course also hoping we get another good sponsorship deal from the tyre manufacturer

a true race tyre would need warmers i beleive and not warm as quickly without them as what we have had

Was thinking of something more like Pirelli Super Corsa's or equivalent, but its a fair point, I understand the reasoning behind looking at going to wets, but I think we start to loose the essence of DD if we add warmers as well.

totally agree- my patience with generators as good as it is with traffic wardens

Two pennies worth from a potential new rider. DD looks attractive to me because of the lack of faff - no swapping wheels, no tyre warmers, no generators, electric starter, etc (but understand the pressures of having to share with other series)
