Having all 12 teams there worries me a little bit though. People have discussed "replaying" Einstein at IRI, and it almost seems like FIRST has accidentally provided this. I hope that these field tests don't devolve into an attempt by teams to try to see what would have happened if the problems had never come up.
I doubt that the one or two people from each team would be able to compete at anywhere near the level of the Championship, especially without any pit support, most likely the drive coach and at least one driver. I think 25, 16 and 180's well fought and earned victory is safe from controversy.
