@npf1 – I do believe Premat’s accident was caused by a right-rear puncture. There were a couple over the weekend, though most of them happened to David Reynolds.
Besides, all you have to do is get a couple of inches off-line through Stoner, and you’ll find yourself in the grass with no way to stop. It’s bad enough in the dry, and the Island is prone to variable conditions. It has been wet on and off all weekend.
The only real solution here is to extend the circuit down past Honda, and recreate the corner as close as possible to the paddock. That will give drivers a little more time to catch their cars if they go off-line, and perhaps a gravel trap with strategically-angled tyre wall could be added in. It’s always going to be a difficult corner to fix, and there’s an accident almost every single time someone goes off there, but it’s the only way.
