Doesnt seem to be another event running already before the B1000 they can just add a day to, like the BMW crowd did..

It requires government gazetting doesnt it, for a separate event. And approval from state & local government. And filling the support crew roster for officials & medical.

Or are we going to see this on Wednesday of Bathurst week

Why is it that Michelin or Pirelli can just pop up with their world GT tyre & just br on it, with no failures of note?
Of course in the late eighties and early nineties the Tooheys 1000 launch day at Bathurst doubled as a tyre test.

Although it didn't always work out for some teams.

Your post is off topic.

The article seems pretty non-committal on anything, dates included. Weird how it quotes Warburton but he hasnt mentioned any sort of tyre day at Bathurst.

Wonder if this test will be open to the public...?

Is part of the reason for the tyre failures not partly caused by the need these days of chasing a tyre that wears out quicker in races?

It seemed to play out that way for Dunlop, the DJR & Perkins cars testing lots of new stuff...

Yes, but not for Brock and Bridgestone.

You feel you need to make a post calling that out, when your post is not on topic either. Seems logical to me! My post was a comment based on the link in the prior post. If that's not on topic, I don't know what is.

Might be interesting to see how the "softs" go on the generally rough Barbagallo circuit.

Looking forward to hearing back from Dunlop, But i suspect the result will be regulation on camber or increased tyre pressures.

Larkos summary seemed to explaing what was going on why the new tyre was different and camber changes happened

good idea. You should consider taking your own advice

Any more thoughts on the Dunlop tyres?

Rusty saying they should test at PI, if they work at PI then they will work at Bathurst
