What are peoples thoughts on Time Attacks decision to change tyre brand this year?

Adam, Fee?

I know of a few people who have already used their budget to purchase R888's in advance....
I'm aware there where whispers about this, however to find out with only three months to the first event isn't good planning IMHO.

Any thoughts?

Has anything been announced?

All I know is that the deal between TA and Toyo was for a certain duration, and it came to its end.

Something new (even if it is with Toyo) will need to be arranged either way but I do hope that its with Toyo.

We havent bought new, but do have about 4 sets of part worns that are still useful :S


fingers crossed it'll be with Toyo and its just a better deal they are getting Laughing

The 2011 supplier isn't going to be announced until 13th January.

I have a feeling it will be Toyo, even though they are making it sound like it's somone new.
They have asked for all our tyre sizes, which I think suggests it could be Toyo since there was such a shambles throughout last year with Toyo not being able to supply tyres to competitors.

Who knows though...we'll just have to wait and see
What other supplier has decent road legal tyres for track use? I have no idea!
If it is with Toyo still I really hope they manage to get a better deal....the prices up to now have been pretty shocking
