    theres not many slicks that work under 10c .

    saying that,if you've ever been to Almeria at 8 in the morning,snow on the mountain tops and the hire car saying 0c outside temp,then watching Tito go round and round is an eye opener to what grip you can get!!

    OMG ! Yes, was there few years ago first thing, sitting on pit wall with a coffee and coat zipped up watching him coming on to the straight. Beggars belief what he can make that bike do.... Mind you, he is (slightly) faster than me
    Rumour had it that he had a caravan living at the circuit for a while..

    The other track, Andalucia, was effectively built for him, for training, hence it being so twisty and 600 focussed.

    What a dream situation. Imagine waking up to that track every morning, putting a coffee on in the sun and smashing out a load of laps...... every single morning!
