Yeah all a bit OTT is'nt it. Iv'e raced on both so whats big deal, 1a definitely saves you money and if everyone is on 1b the same guys will still win just the whole field will be 2 or 3 seconds a lap quicker, so what.

MikeBz should be qualifying in the top 10 on the grid
To be fair Al, the same argument could be used in favour of us all racing on castors - but I don't think we'd want to

It might save YOU money because of the car you drive but don't assume it's the same for everyone because it isn't.

Despite what you say 1b tyres even things up considerably - 1a tyres suit more modern machinery.

And you can't get the sizes in 1a like you used to

Isn't anybody listening??

"Competitors may use any road legal tyre other than those listed in list 1b"

SOMEONE PLEASE tell me why list 1a is needed.

That's quite an axe you have to grind there, Jonners.

Anyway, this thread seems to be going in circles. It appears a lot of people here believe that 1a has its place. And Jonners, asking the same question repeatedly without listening to the answers is really annoying.

Thread closed. If someone wants to open another sensible debate concerning tyre choice, then feel free, but don't turn it into another "1a brigade" rant.
