Track Day Help

Good Morning Gents,

I have a track day coming up this weekend, It will be my first on my gen 4 and with RS10 tires. I'll be headed to Willow Springs in Socal should be a pretty hot day...100+! With the bridgestone RS10's what are your recommended tire pressures? Greatly appreciate all information!

They usually have a tire guy there. Get his and the coaches opinion on tire pressure. I run dunlop Q3s and was told 30 front and 28 cold and it felt great. I run fast intermediate/slow advanced

I got those numbers to from the Dunlop guy but he said thats hot off the tire warmers. Sounds like it works for cold tires also.

After doing some googleing :P I found that a 31 front 29 Rear cold seems to be a common number.

Thats probably a good starting point. Check them after each session and you can dial it in for you personally. Its going to be a tad different for everyone according to how you ride.

I always look for a two to four pound increase in pressure on the front and six to eight on the rear. That should be taken immediately when you come off the track. Some helpful info here...

You are running with Motoyard, no? Greg will let you know what pressures to run. WSIR Main Road Course motorcycle baseline is 32F/30R but depending on temps they may advise differently.

Pretty much the safest and one of the fastest road courses in the country, have fun!
