Fresh Rubber For Our Endurance Racer

We’re preparing for our next race: a 14-hour-long ChumpCar World Series endurance event at Daytona International Speedway.

That means we need new tires. While our Bridgestone Potenza RE-71R tires have served us well, they’re well-worn after a few races, and a few panic stops have added flat spots to most of them, too. What did we order to repace them? Two fresh sets of Bridgestone Potenza RE-71Rs. Put simply: These tires make our Miata fast and easy to drive, and they seem to last almost forever, too.
