Competition tyres are one of the most important components of a sports car. Of crucial importance during motor racing, they are technical elements that greatly influence the driving sensation and performance on the track. They are available on the market in several models depending on the technical nature of the track.
The importance of using good quality competition tyres
Installing high quality sports tyres on your car is very important for good handling. Since these are the only elements that connect the vehicle to the track, they influence the :
- Grip on the ground ;
- Driving safety ;
- The performance of the car.
Having tyres that are suitable for the track on which he is driving allows the driver to drive in better conditions. In addition to guaranteeing a good grip of the vehicle on the ground, a quality racing tyre favours a better transmission of acceleration, braking and drifting forces. All of this contributes to the vehicle's stability and excellent driving precision.
These different parameters have a positive impact on driving safety and help to improve the driver's performance. Moreover, equipping a sports car with quality tyres is imperative if you want to exploit its performance to the full.
What are the different types of competition tyres?
There are many different types of competition tyres on the market, which can be grouped into two main categories:
- Slick tyres ;
Slick tyres are used exclusively on race tracks. They are very high performance tyres that are perfectly suited to the demands of dry tracks. Because they do not have a grooved tread, they are dangerous on wet tracks.
Semi-slicks can be used not only on race tracks, but also on traditional roads. With great grip on dry surfaces, semi-slicks can also be used on wet asphalt. They are lightly grooved, but wear out faster than slicks.
Slick or semi-slick tyres are available in different types of rubber (hard, super soft, soft, medium). The choice of the right rubber depends on the driving conditions and the level of performance required.
Which tyres for which competitions?
Competition tyres are exclusively dedicated to motor racing. They are designed to withstand the extreme stresses of the racetrack and to ensure optimum safety for drivers. They are required for disciplines such as endurance, karting, rallying and Formula 1. For each of these disciplines, the choice of tyres is not a matter of chance. Here are some guidelines for making the right choice for each discipline.
For circuits, you should choose durable tyres that can maintain a constant speed (slick or hard semi-slick). For Formula 1, you should choose highly aerodynamic tyres that can withstand extreme speeds. For traditional rallying or rally-raid, you need to use tyres that are highly resistant to shocks while taking into account the specificities of the track...
For a dirt rally competition, hard semi-slicks will be ideal. For an asphalt rally, hard semi-slicks are preferable in summer and soft ones in wet conditions.
