Tyres

Pirelli tyres are to be used during Championship race event and the compounds will be set at SC2 Front and SC2 Rear.  Only 120 and 180 sizes maybe used. A maximum of two front tyres and two rear tyres per meeting may be used. (Two rear tyres and one front will be issued as part of your fee, one additional front maybe purchased per round).
Wet tyres may be used when the race is declared wet by the COC and maybe purchased from Complog at the applicable event. Riders will be issued with tyre control numbers for their dry tyres (different control numbers will be issued for different rounds). Riders must ensure that these tyre control numbers are fixed to the tyres for all qualifying and race sessions. Failure to do so will result in your track time being suspended.

Tyre control numbers are to be fitted to the right hand side of tyre walls as you sit on the bike.

Riders are advised to fix tyre control numbers to tyres before the tyre is fitted to the wheel since tyre soap reduces the adhesion of the sticker to the tyre. Riders are advised to thoroughly clean the area of the tyre that stickers are to be fixed to.

In the final inspection at the end of a race or qualifying session bike weights should be a minimum of 161Kg for Vin No’s 381275 onwards (to include the weight of all fluids in the bike).  No tolerance will be given on this weight.  The established weight limit must be met in the condition that the bike finished the track session.
