2014 Reedy International TC Race of Champions Spec Tire SelectionApril 14, 2014
The Reedy Race is pleased to announce that the Sweep EXP36 Evo-R has been chosen as the spec tire for the 2014 Reedy International Touring Car Race of Champions.
A total of fifteen compounds from six manufacturers were tested but when all was said and done, the EXP36 Evo-R was chosen due to its ability to provide fast lap times, consistent performance from run to run, and quality construction.
Invitational class driver Rick Hohwart was among the drivers involved with the tire testing and provided the following feedback: “Not only did the EXP36 Evo-R turn lap times as fast as I had ever turned at the Tamiya track, but traction was available immediately with no need to wait for the tires to come in before turning competitive lap times. Tire balance was better than any of the other tires tested and the quality of the mounting and gluing is superb.”
Remember, included with each entry is one set of marked and numbered Sweep EXP36 Evo-R tires. Drivers will be allowed to purchase an additional three sets of marked and numbered tires for use as they please for qualifying and triple main events. There is no limit to the number of tires a driver may purchase for practice, but tires for controlled practice seeding rounds must be marked tires purchased at the event. Tires for non-scored controlled practice rounds or pre-race testing can be purchased at the event or at www.sweepracingusa.com.
