    Some laps at Spa will do this to your tires...

    O.K. to be honest, they lasted for some 150 NoS laps before Smiley But the 30 laps in Spa-Francorchamps last Sunday (nice season finish) gave them the rest...Smiley

    Sorry for the lousy pic quality (phone-cam) Smiley

    Re: Some laps at Spa will do this to your tires...

    In the afternoon we enjoyed an open pitlane - hence racecars and streetcars together on the track Smiley

    It's unbelievable when U. Alzen flies by in his beast - I thought I was in reverse Smiley

    Also impressive what the Radicals can do in the corners Smiley

    While Mr. Alzen clocked laptimes in the low 2:3X, I was happy to achieve a 3:10 at best (lacking some horses, the right rubber.......and some driving skills) Smiley

    In the last pic you can see how I'm chasing the mighty Alzen-Porsche on the Kemmel straight Smiley

    Re: Some laps at Spa will do this to your tires...

    Here's a nice inboard video from last Sunday showing some pretty fast laps (not me featuring though Smiley )

    Re: Some laps at Spa will do this to your tires...

    Achim, hate to burst your bubble, but I still can'see he pics! 

    The names look promising, and I look forward to seeing them, as I have been on SPa myself some years ago.

    Did you upload the images and then attach them to the message?

    Best wishes,
    -Joost-

    Stay tuned, Joost - I now found the reason for the bug Smiley The prob occurs if you edit the name of the uploaded pics (even if the jpg ending stays intact). Will try again with unedited names)

    I had a great time to play with a CaymanS for 4 consecutive laps Smiley One lap I overtook him when he made a mistake at Eau Rouge, next lap he caught me at the end of the long uphill Kemmel straight - big fun Smiley

    Re: Some laps at Spa will do this to your tires...

    Hi, no need to get angry. I removed them upon request from porsche-jeck, because the image upload didn't work.

    All his images are in his later posts.

    Keep your shirt on Ed1 :D Eunice is the guy programming the whole new thing, has done a lot of good work lately! Smiley

     Achim, really impressive pictures! Those tyres... :O Always find it inconvenient to see the rubber actually melts. Modern technology at it's best, keeping you on the track.

    Thanks for the pictures, really make me remember that weekend when I was at Spa for the Porsche days a couple of years ago!

    Thanks Eunice ! I thought the entire post could be removed without the "post removed by..." message. No prob though. Ed must have thought that I have posted some not so appropriate pics, hence removed by the Mods - LoL

    @ Joost: Yes, those street tires easily melt at a GP track - but like mentioned before I can't complain - they survived for a full season :)

    Re: Some laps at Spa will do this to your tires...

    Porsche-Jeck,

    I found out that on dry tracks, Sport Cups are more appropriate, obviously in terms of grip, but also in terms of wear. Michelin Sport, when getting hot, just melt more than cups but  the rubber blocks tend to bend, especially when recent, as they're thicker thus suffer more.

    Moreover, as I guess you don't have a trailer to bring your car on track, Cups do hold correctly on the wet, as far as they're new and as you're watching the road to avoid puddles.
