New Metzeler Racetec tyres

Metzeler have launched a new tyre for track days and DOT legal racing Designed to complete full race distance under the hottest conditions and are supposed to be good for at least 80km's of hard riding Supposed to have more feel than the out going Rennsport and bags of grip. Three compounds available from June at about 220 quid a pair. Sounds interesting, if the claims are to be believed you could do a round of the MSS with them and still have some grip left for the last race

Only 80km's, thats only 16 laps of the full Sepang circuit! I normally do at least 40 laps on one set of Pirelli SuperCorsas. I must be doing something wrong.
