if the track days on Saturday i wudnt bother with new tyres John. They'll just get too much wear as tracks are very abrasive.

As for the tyre have a quick look for the "what tyres" thread thats kicking about as theres some really different opinions.

I'm doing a track day on Saturday too, but in my b/f's Mk 2 and at Cadwell Park!

What is the noise restriction? My car was 95db when it was tested at Donington last year and the limit was 98db so I was lucky!

At the time I had Milltek unresonated with sports cats and remap. I made a mistake in my previous post too, it was Castle Combe, not Donington.
