My mistake, I assumed from the above statement that you had very low temperature in the tyre and i know that a cold slick has less grip than a cold high performance road tyre. Did not know about those other tyres you mentioned, I would have cut sipes into a slick firstAt the chequered flag, the tyres and brakes can usually be touched with a bare hand!
Off topic for a moment; below is the speed trace from my 1st timed run at castle combe earlier in the year... interesting to note that my Quarry apex speed (about 600 metres into the run) was just over 50mph too, but lateral G-force only 0.86 (this was in a Porsche Boxster running bog standard road tyres), so I must've been taking a significantly wider line through that corner... would be interesting to see your speed trace for comparison...???I was pulling 1.35G at the first corner (Quarry) on stone cold tyres at 52mph at Castle Combe earlier this year.
