I have to wonder who used their "special" tires a little early to make certain they are at least in the top 20. My guess is Corser is shooting for the top 12 to get out of the pack and cruise around to a nice top 10 while sorting the bike out for race 2. The gap is promising a close race for sure. It seems as though this one will be tighter than the other races due to venue and familiarity. Nearly everyone has seen this place on several occasions. Can't wait!
