At Watkins Glen Zippo Grand Prix in early September, I had 2 rotors go 
bad.... and 1 after only 2 laps.  There is some pretty poor material used in 
some of the rotors out there.  They break down and the spark never gets to 
the wires and plugs, it's just going straight into the main shaft of the 
distributor because the materials in the rotor have broken down.  When you 
buy 1, buy spares!!  The ones I had all said made in UK on the boxes, but 
the materials would not hold up to the heat.
