GT National Series F1 Control Tyre Announcement 2016/17

1/12th Circuit GT

The BRCA GT Circuit committee would like to announce that the current GRP tyres will again be used for the upcoming 2016/17 season.


This decision has been made as we will be testing various options throughout the coming season with the help from “you” the competitor.

The results of these tests will go forward to the EGM, the committee feel that this option that the actual competitors within the section get to evaluate the pro’s and con’s of each tyres merits.

At each round of the 2016/17 season the committee will select at random racers to test/evaluate certain brands of F1 tyres, to be tested at racers convenience at club level (not at a national event). A questionnaire will be provided with the tyres for the racer to fill in and hand back at the next national meeting.
