Oops Pantah, you beat me to it, my reply was meant for the Blurr.
Sorry, I don't understand your point, they go a little slower on the first few bends/miles, to let the tyre warm up, bed in, scrub in or whatever. Surely you are arguing against this?
Maybe the "champs" manager will also tell him not to bother with the warm up lap either as it is a waste of time? You haven't considered traction control either.
You believe him if you want, but I'll take my advice from those who race on road tyres, (in some classes) on real roads, in the real world.
Summary:- Some tyres may not need scrubbed, but many still do.
( have I used the word real, too much? ;-) )
