From all accounts it looks like we'll be running RA-1s next season in the SARRC. The Goblin's Go at VIR is the first race of the 2010 SARRC season, so does that mean the spec tire is RA-1?

There are also two CCPS races and an ECR that during the same event weekend, both with Spec Miata classes. Can anyone tell me what the tire requirement will be for those events?

Thanks!

Dan,
CCPS only! Don't know about the other races.

3.4All 2009 SM and Atlanta region SSM class CCPS races will use either Toyo RA-1s with a manufacturer's date prior to December 3, 2008 or Toyo 888s (205/50R15). Rain tire choice is open.

Until the SCCA BOD votes to change the National tire from the R-888 to the RA-1......I believe the SARRC and ECR will run on R-888. The RE's voted to make the spec tire the National tire so until the National tire officially changes I am planning on running the R-888 at the first SARRC race at Sebring.
