Also, what's the G.O. with the on-road setup? Is it just a roped car park set-up?
Hi AlecMcJo,

Track has just been refurbished last weekend, not sure on tyre combo but standard Associated fronts and Green Subcultures on rear would be a safe bet, or M3 M4 blockades and or cityblock on rear? track usually starts off loamy and gets better as the day goes on.

Most tyres available at the track, let me know what you need if you get stuck.

Hope this helps
