The FV Advisory Committee wants to get out this update on the FV Spec Tire Testing being conducted this year. There are two Phases to the testing program. So far the Committee, with the support of Hoosier and a handful of fellow FV racers devoting their time and cars, have been testing the tires in different parts of the country. The Phase I testing that started back in January has been going on from California to Virginia, and from Connecticut to Florida. So far we have run over 71 sessions on the test tires, and have run them in testing session, as well as for qualifying and races, and at both the Rational and Majors level. We are currently still in Phase I of the testing plan and we will be wrapping this phase up during the month of May.
Tracks that we have tested at so far are…
The test tires have so far been showing a dramatic increase in longevity, but it’s unfair to our testing process to predict just how much at this time. However, we should know by the end of June.
We’d like to thank Hoosier and all the testers for their support and sacrifice for the future health and well being of the FV class.
For those looking for yet another tire choice for FV, you may want to sit tight, as this new tire we’ve been testing might be the one you’ve been waiting for.
We hope you have a great racing season!
The FV Advisory Committee
