PRESS RELEASE – TYRE INFORMATION
By BSCDA, May 17 2017 03:32PM
After the BMB meeting on Tuesday 16th May (which includes BriSCA and BSCDA) there were discussions over driver concerns regarding the availability of the Pirelli K6.
The BSCDA are currently buying in K6 tyres in order to supply drivers. These are not for stock piling but for drivers to buy for a meeting at a time. If you require tyres please make this known when you book in for a meeting.
The BSCDA committee are working hard on the mandate given to them at the AGM, regarding the inside rear tyre and are in the process of the following.
• Working with various suppliers to resolve availability issues.
• Arranging test days, where various tyres, mainly for the left rear will be tested along with continuing tyre testing at meetings. Further information will be available shortly.
All the data gathered will be presented to the drivers, in time for the AGM where decisions will be made.
The outcome of the BMB meeting is as follows
• Kumho R900 banned on the left rear
• American Racer tarmac tyre allowed on a trial basis (at non Championship events)
