Thing about starting the race as late as they did last year and this year just a wee bit earlier is that rain is not only far more likely, it is heavier and the track doesn't have a chance to dry out. A normal 1pm start allows in the event of rain plenty of heat and the track will dry that much faster.

Of course if you want wet races then fair enough... :goodday:
