Very impressive performance, tires kept giving Tom kept going. Think the disparity has something to do with the lack of dry setup time and the track layout, but Tom really put on the master class.

Tom's first complete race win in completely dry conditions, classified as dry. Believe his other technical dry race was at Monza, but that one was cut short after 8 or so laps.. Expecting Aprilia to be a little stronger, but Tom+Kawasaki are a class in front today.

works beemer's are prolly around a solid 210-215 and i'm sure could do more if not dialed back for ridability. lotta deutsche marks in that head design. club level kit around here are seeing 200-205, but it's more for bragging rights, the OE TC can't do anything with it and they sure as hell don't have the talent, support, or even the circuits to make use of it.

ps: grinner's zed is for sure same league as the beemer. 208-212 all day without a sweat. albeit a tick under on top, it'll shear the spokes out a bmw rim from a standstill.
