Hot sun, new tarmac, sidewalks for berms, very temperamental tires, and the "pressure" to win a cheap plaque, all make for some ugly TT driving!
In my quest to get the RT-615's into their sweet spot, without over heating, I bled them a little too low, and left them a little too cool. They never quite "came in" during the TT.
