Very suprised and disappointed (as I had set my wheel choice on this new tyre) to read the review of the replacement for the popular 888.
The current issue of Track Car and performance has a controlled tyre test of all the latest track day tyres including the new pattern 888.
All compared to reference road tyre Continental Sport 5
Well the 888 was the worst by a country mile with lap times nearly 10 seconds slower than the continental.
What was best? The Yokohama A048 but still 3 seconds a lap slower than the continental.
Seems we might be wasting out money on these trackday special tyres.
