Fastest Slick

Hi Chaps has anyone seen any data/links or input on what they think is the quickest Slick Tyre Marque for a Saloon Car on 17 x 9's , 860 KGS 330 BHP. Pirelli? Dunlop? New Toyo ? Hanook? Around 20 Minute Races? Cheers in Advance

Surely there are far more variables to be taken into consideration, and it may well be car specific?

Don’t know the answer to your question, Joss, but does this mean that you are going to race this year? Don’t think I have seen you on track for circa 3 years?
What series? CSCC Special Saloons & Modsports I hope?

CSCC have a new series for cars on Slicks, Joss, as well as the Special Saloons series.

Andy I plan to have some outings with the CSCC in the Open/Slicks Race with the EVO. I do not plan to run the Sunbeam in any CSCC Special/Modified Sports Saloons Races this season as I am just planning to do the CT rounds and a few T/A Rounds Will do some of the Spec/Mod Sprts/saloons next season after a refresh and upgrades as many quicker cars have entered since 2012 :0)

It will be good to see you and the Sunbeam/ Evo out.
Ginger Marshall (Reliant Kitten) and the Dr Enderby (Karmann Ghia) are due out next season too.

My background is single seaters and typically 15 minute races so not entirely relevant. However experience tells me that the slick which wins races is the one that is quickest in the opening two laps and then gives consistent grip to the chequered flag. It may not necessarily give the overall quickest lap.

A name not on your list to consider, Hoosier.

Yeah it would actually be quite interesting to try and define that somehow.

When I used to work in automotive we created criteria for tyre testing - comparing different brands and tyre types i.e. stopping distance (wet or dry), lap time and even driver confidence.

For a racing tyre, maybe you could have both objective and subjective measures that make more sense on track. Say like peak acceleration, per kg of axle weight, per psi, per deg surface temp, per deg camber angle!

Actually ... maybe this is getting a bit to complex too quickly!

Michelin - just to chuck that one into the mix.

I used to run on Dunlops, but since moving to Michelins it would have to be very good reason to change to anything else.
