Condensation in distributor. First clean the cap with a rag, then allow to dry thoroughly then a light coating, just s little bit now, of WD40 inside the cap. Might help solve that

I agree with David. When I was preparing rallye cars, we would coat the outsides of the distributor caps with a product called "Wire Dry". It was a plastic like coating that sealed it and the wires. Electricity travels through the path of least resistance and that includes dirt on the outside of the cap. The cars could make it through water crossings with out any misfires.
