Last year's set of autocross tires (Bridgestone RE71R, like just about everyone else) lasted all year, but the front two tires just weren't going to go any farther this year. I'm sticking with the rear tires from last year for now, they look to be OK for the start of the season. Having good tires makes a huge difference in autocross and probably every other type of motor sports.
Farther south, NMS-South brought home some gently used Pirelli slicks to be used on the 70s Dodge Coronet at Carolina Motorsports Park in May. Things continue to look good for Brian and the LeMons endurance team to do a full weekend of testing in May, and then compete in a race in the fall.
