    Very interesting. I've just bought a set of semi slicks that'll likely only see 4 track days a year , & then only be used if it's dry/damp. How long are they going to be useable time wise?

    the crack possibly from age, but those chunks you're missing is from riding the curbs. had it happen to my first set of cup 2's.

    was this organised as an 'open pitlane' or were there seperate sessions?

    It’s suggested that the rubber stays good around 4 years, obviously the conditions that the tyres are kept in with impact this. After this time the rubber starts to dry out, crack and perish.

    Sorry Peter just saw that! It was an open pitlane, I tend to avoid sessions because everyone goes out at a specific time and therefore it's too busy for my liking.

    Definitely, it's heavier and adds to the feel.
