I used vredestien sprint classic 185/70x15 on my 3a. 

You can drive to a tr register event and compete on these. 

But you have a wide choice if you read our regs.

They must have been in a past MSA book as the regs sa

Class 2 —- Tyres must be from List 1A or List 1B of any year MSA Yearbook

i think Roger the organiser uses them too

Hi, I presume they would be allowed -  I have some road legal Yokohama AO48s 205/60/15s available if of interest. Thanks

Not sure about these as these are now 1c tyres. See note above. 

But send email to organiser Roger for clarification.

Hi All

The fact is that if you are competing in a road legal car any road legal tyre (marked with a E) is acceptable, although if the car is Class 1 then you cannot use tyres in List 1B of any year.

I have Blue Books going back 10 years, surely no one uses tyres older than that?, so if you want a check just send me an e-mail.

As a matter of interest I am using Vreds Sprint Classic that were in List 1B in 2015.

I have never seen a Scrutineer check the tyres so in the end it rests with the Championship competitors.

Roger

I've competed in hillclimbs and sprints with Colway remoulds before now.

I must admit I was a little bemused by the tyre regs but a phone call to the (then)  MSA

and I was told that pretty much that any tyre you wanted to use was up to you, and at

your own risk.

Has it changed?

Roger M-E
