    Jono Hansen from Aussie Trailer hire runs them and is who I bought mine from.

    Personally, I reckon the best thing IPRA could do would be to not have a control tyre. Open it up the Prod Car Tyre List. Alot of people will switch to the much cheaper and arguably equally fast Hankook, which is the only thing that might ever make Yokohama bring their pricing back towards the rest of the market.

    A friend of mine has run them on his full weight evo. Ran them at 30ish initially and wasn't too happy. Next track day he tried mid 30's and was much happier. On his advice i aimed for 36 hot, ended up between 34-36 front to back and it worked quite well for me. These tyres dont seem to mind a bit of extra pressure.

    Agree it should be opened up. But it seems like the typical scare mongering from a select few saying it will increase costs, with people having one brand for qually, another for wet and another for dry races. That may well be the case for those wanting to be uber competitive, but surely 80% of the field would be happy if they can run mid field for less money. They may even improve times as they could afford more practice days on cheaper rubber. Be very surprised if there's any change.

    Ipra spending is out of control now. It's so far away from club level it's crazy. They might as well open tyres up. Some people will spend for the best but it gives the option to the slower guys to buy cheaper tyres.
