On hot days folks would have to pit on track days due to greasy tires whereas the Bridgestones kept going.
Interesting. Is 2 seasons typical of a track capable street tire? That sounds like a decent amount based on your usage, although maybe you used a separate set of wheels/tires for street use only?

Most of my competitors were getting a season or less from their Nittos, Falcons, BFGs etc.

I usually drove to and from the track on the same set but as I did not drive much since I lived Downtown my street use was rather limited to 2000-3000km a year.

^ Nice E-Type!

I too, have seen some nice rides recently. A collection of Loti. Enjoy the rawness and the purity.

That first one is amazing. I was (---) that close to acquiring an Exige a few years ago... but was told that an S2000 and that was 'no reasonable or practical' by my better half.

Los Angeles is chaos. It's a funny place, and that's what I love about it.
