Default Tyre suggest ( AKA) for grass racing course!?

Hi, next week will be my first race at a grass racing course.
Please suggest me a tyre that will do well on the grass.
I,m Thinking in my all around tyres. AKA cityblock soft.
I usually run: cityblock , front & I-beans rear..
for grass maybe Cityblock all around.
All tips will help.
Thanks a lot.

For grass you will want something with (larger) pin type lugs for best traction.
For example: Medial Pro Turbo's or Raptor's (buggy)

Shumacher got the best grass tyre's, mini pins, mini spikes or the spirals are your best bet on a grass track.

+1 on the badlands, I've also heard that some people use something like -4 or -5 rear camber on grass.
