TYRES.

As we are all aware Tyres can be an expensive part of Karting.

If any particular class is in full agreement, they may at their own discretion implement their own tyre policy over the Club Championship series.

For Example if  Junior Rotax Max unaminously wish to restrict the number of sets of tyres over the 7 rounds then it is up to them to set and police their own policy. There will be no recourse on the committee to any disputes.
