Loving the 245/35/15 size especially for the lower center of gravity

Was my first time using the Vitour P1 a few weeks ago at the PCA Autox in San Pedro. With just a gentle scrub in beforehand and limited setup data I still managed 2nd in PAX and 5th in raw. Two tenths ahead of the next STR prepped ND Miata on A052s even in cold weather. Definitely more time to be found by dialing in the pressures and making some shock adjustments (and with more ambient temperature). Loving the 245/35/15 size especially for the lower center of gravity and gearing my ND2. They came in about mid way into the first run despite the cold weather. Even still the first run was a still a respectable time within 3 or 4 tenths of my fastest run. By run two they are 100% ready to set a flyer, and stayed in a perfect temp window for the subsequent runs. This is leaps and bounds better than the Nankang CR-S v2, Falken RT 660, etc, which often take 2 runs to get enough heat in them to work on the Miata. They seemed to get in the right window almost as fast as A502s but have way more steering feel on turn in. They felt a similar turn in bite and feedback to RE-71s but with the slip angle and overall mid corner grip of the A052s, which is really the best of both worlds. I'm very impressed there because so many of other tire options are very vague on corner entry feedback which can be tough on a stiff car. Absolutely will be using these for everything I can within the class rules. Looking forward to trying them on my XA classed 650hp BMW M2 as well.

I'm extremely happy with the longevity of the tire

Gonna take the P1s on a significant road trip to the "Subaru Challenge" in a few weeks. Tires have already seen 2-3k miles of road driving and 4 autocross events with roughly 30-40 runs, mostly at Grissom on the grippy rough tire eating concrete. Road driving seems much easier on the tires than some of the other super 200tw tires which is what has convinced me to try a long road trip to see how they do in that situation. So far I'm extremely happy with the longevity of the tire vs the performance. Much more consistent and stickier than tires I've ran with a similar wear rate (like the rt660). Excited to get my actual "race car" back up and going to try these out on.

Biggest win of my career

Biggest win of my career this weekend. Everything came together as it should and I was not only able to bring home 2 trophies but on top of that we won the weekend and this prize of 2 Vitour P1 tires in a 285 to throw on the car and see what this build can really do with a massive sticky steam roller under it. I have to thank Vitour for sponsoring this event and giving out these tires to the winners!

I had an incredible weekend in San Pedro

My brother and I had an incredible weekend in San Pedro, co-driving the YOLOC5 Corvette! Saturday, we raced with Corner Exit Event Services, and on Sunday, we joined Porsche Club of America: Los Angeles (PCALA). The Corvette got some new upgrades: slightly stiffer springs front and back, Van Steel front and rear sway bars, and a fresh corner weight and balance. We dialed in the car and got comfortable with the new setup on Saturday. My brother secured 2nd place in the Modified class and had the 4th best overall combined times out of 87 drivers! Sunday, we felt much more comfortable in the car. I put down some fast laps in the practice sessions but couldn't repeat it for the timed runs. On the other hand, Anthony went all out, took 1st place in the Modified class, and ended up with the 3rd fastest lap out of 90 drivers! There was some serious competition this weekend & I can't explain how proud I am of Anthony Paolino and the car! At 650hp, The Vette is a real handful and it will bite you in the ass if you get too aggressive. So seeing it rip around a tight autocross course makes it even more special. These autocross events are so much fun, and I've met some incredible people. Can't wait to get back out there! Huge thanks to Jim Tway at Tway Motorsports for all his incredible work on this car. Shoutout to Sam at ViTour P1, 200 TW Tire for Autox & Track for setting me up with the P1s! These tires have around 140 laps on them and they're still holding strong. This 200tw tire continues to blow me away. That's all for now. Until next time, keep on racing!

It's going to take another 100 or more

This tire on the yellow corvette has 90 autox runs, 75 on sandpaper concrete at Grissom / Peru known for eating tires. 15 runs at Tire Rack. 2003 Corvette Z06 Zach Rogers fast guy To me looks like it's going to take another 100 or more. The P1s lose tread pattern and nearly look like slicks like a v730 or Nt01 do when they wear in. Seem to keep pace, if anything get faster.

Pretty happy with the results

First event on the P1s and can now see what the hype is all about. The tire was grippy out of the gate, but got better every run. Wear seems minimum so far and the lot we ran on is extremely aggressive on tires (Grissom AFB in Peru Indiana) Ended up 3rd Raw in the contingency 1st in class 15th Raw Overall Pretty happy with the results being a bunch of high HP CAM cars and some race cars on slicks filled out the majority of the top 20.

Best I have ever finished here

Day one results at Grissom with Indy SCCA. 3rd PAX and 4th RAW. Best I have ever finished here. Even after 80+ runs these ViTourP1.com tires are still getting better and wear amazing. The tires paired with the Viking shocks had the car feeling great. Let’s see what tomorrow has in store for us.

Needless to say the P1's were awesome

Team ViTourP1.com IndySCCA Points 2 I codrove the Lotus with Brandon Porambo SCCA Solo BS National Champion year before last Temp was high 70s into 80s. Concrete. We never sprayed, never felt the need to. Lots of cars around us were spraying. ViTour P1's came in about 1/4 into first run. Course was fairly technical. Not quite Miata course tight but definitely not what I'd consider open Took screenshot of top 1/3 from live timing Myself and Brandon topped overall PAX. Brandon didn't get his last 5th run in, I expect had he, he would have put some gap at the top. Needless to say the P1's were awesome. PAX 1,2,3,11,16 are on ViTourP1.com tires

I bought these for street use

Due to the lack of availability for 18" 200tw tires sized for the Viper, I bought these for street use (Conti ECF on backorder for 2 years now?) This is the first tire I've had deadhook on the street in 1st gear 🤔🤔🤔 That includes Continental Pilot Sport, Hoosier A7, Michelin Slicks. Some witchcraft going on here.

100 street miles

First autocross event with the P1s (245/40/17) mounted on my 135i. They had about 100 street miles on them prior. They were fast and didn't need any time to get up to speed. My 2nd run of the day basically held FTD until the last few runs where I was bumped from the top. Good enough for P2 overall on the day and won my class. Another note is that they were very consistent throughout the day. I had 4-5 of my 8 runs all within a 1/10th. I'm a bit concerned with how long they're going to last but we'll see when we get there. The extra/lower shoulder wear (just started to touch the "WATER RAZOR" text) was because I left them around 25psi after the break/changeover and sent it anyway. I typically get a full season, which is 8-10 events @ 10-14 runs an event, on previous 200TW tires. I've run seasons on Direzzas ZIIs, RT660s and RE71R/S prior to these.

The P1 have a ton more laps

Team ViTourP1.com Gridlife Gingerman Rev Up Get your P1s at https://ViTourp1.com coupon code TEAMP1 I have done a ton of laps at Gingerman. It is a home track. This was Justin's first time. He spent the better half of day one figuring out the new car and track but he had it figured out for day 2. 295/315 A052 295/345 P1 Both on 18x10 18x12 C8 Stingray z51 5vm/factory aero, afe front sway bar, stock otherwise Day 1 One of the morning sessions A052 1:39.0 Dallas Later morning session P1 1:38.7 Dallas https://youtu.be/PlZtcdarEoU Day 2 First session best conditions of the event I went out on A052. Went out with ptm/TC on the wrong setting and it botched the one good lap. Made a second lap with ptm set correctly but was slower than the previous day's 1:39.0. Too much fall off on the second lap with the A052. I gave Justin the heads up to avoid the same mistake so he could make the most of his morning attempt in which he pulled off a 0.3 lead on me with the P1 P1 1:38.4 Justin (on second lap, first was 1:39.2) https://youtu.be/_u1x7Ned9gQ Second session early afternoon P1 1:38.7 Dallas https://youtu.be/QTdmre99ciY A052 1:39.0 Justin The wear rate difference between the P1 and A052 is no joke. I have had to replace a rear a052 prior to this event to from wear. The P1 have a ton more laps than the a052s and look like they could do a ton more. I found the P1 easier to drive on because of substantially more feedback at the limit compared to the A052. I ran sessions of 3-5 laps at this event with the P1 and never felt sketchy, they always felt good. On a longer stint there may have been some fall off, but they never felt bad. Peak grip felt similar, a touch more understeer on the P1 setup due to the sizes. A052 were 1 chance. You could try a second lap but always noticeably slower and third was a waste of time. The PDR errored a few times and I wasn't the best at remembering to turn it on so I am not sure I recorded one of the 1:39 A052 laps. The 1:38.7 was apparently enough for 2nd place in unlimited class.

Awesome time with Gridlife

Awesome time with Gridlife at Gingerman Raceway this weekend. I got to run this beautiful C8 corvette owned by Dallas Reed of https://ViTourp1.com in time attack all weekend. This weekend was a bit of a learning curve for me as it was not only my first time at this track but also my first time tracking a c8. It’s not a real difficult track to learn and I felt like I figured it out fairly well by the end of the first few sessions. We ran both the ViTour P1 and Yokohama A052 to benchmark them against each other. Ultimately I ran my fastest lap on the P1 of a 1:38.4 but was also the best conditions being the first morning session second day. I ran the a052 the next session and ran a 1:39.0 in a little worse conditions as the temperature came up a good bit. So far it seems that they are both very similar in overall pace, but the a052 falls off pace with each lap as it gets hotter. I did three back to back laps on them today and got about half a second slower each lap. The p1 holds on to its best pace for at least three straight laps on this car. Dallas said the P1s are lasting much longer than the a052s on this car. This set of p1s had three full track weekends including two with two drivers in the car, and 20 autocross runs and will go a few more weekends yet. Thanks again for inviting me out and letting me pilot the C8 around to learn the track and get some more experience on the tires.

The ViTour P1's were a rocket on the track

The ViTour P1's were a rocket on the track at Grissom earlier today. In my last run, I dropped to 50.009 close to the faster cars. I'm still working on the technique. Overall, give it a little bit of warm weather, these tires will be a rocket.

ViTour P1 vs Yokohama A052

ViTour P1 vs Yokohama A052 Tire Test #2 Autocross on Asphalt Shipping now at http://ViTourP1.com Conclusions: The ultimate fast lap times are too close to call between the A052 and ViTour P1 in the same size The P1 works surprisingly well in 48F temps even on the first run The first run time between the A052 and P1 was too close to call (this was a surprise to me, I expected the A052 to have an advantage at 48F and it did not) The P1 kept their pace for every run and did not have any fall off. A052 wear substantially more than the P1 The 345/25/19 P1 on a 19x11 wheel is faster/has more grip than a 315/30/18 on a 18x12 wheel. We were able to reproduce wear that looked like a early precursor along the lines of what is shown in the GRM test. But vastly less severe. It only showed itself by what I would describe as overdriving / excessive sliding, when the tires are cold / first run. This happened on the 345/19 on the first run or two when cold. Mostly after Mike's first on the 345s where I thought he was "overdriving" before I inspected the tires. On subsequent runs when the tires were at normal temperature this sort of wear stopped/mostly disappeared. I also think it could have something to do with the surface. Or could be off.

Asphalt, OK condition, not great. Bumpy 2 drivers Dallas Reed / Mike Young, test n tune style event, not much break between runs. Same tires that were new at the beginning of the Road America event my previous tests were based around, with addition of 345/19 P1 rears for a test segment Runs: Listed in order as the day goes, conditions improved a bit as the day went on. I will list runs that have cones as dirty. We could throw them out but including them gets a better perspective IMO. We started the day on A052. The weather and surface were cold. The thought was to do 3 runs or until we did a run we felt was hard to beat then switch drivers or tires. We would start on the A052 to learn the course, plus figured it was coldest at the beginning of the day and assumed the A052 would be the better choice given how cold it was.

P1 morning 295/30/18 on 18x10 front, 315/30/18 on 18x12 rear Mike 40.395 We were stunned on this run by the time. We expected the P1 would not be so good on the first run, but obviously it was right there with the A052. It came in within the first 1/4 of the course or so. 38.815 (dirty) 39.913 video 4/21/2024 12:41 https://youtu.be/dS-4hlOZp14 Dallas 39.799 (dirty) 39.951 video 4/21/2024 12:51 https://youtu.be/rS20ner_mnI 39.639 (forgot to turn on PDR/video) We concluded the A052 and P1 offered very similar times. The P1 were also good on the first run, and wasn't any more a throwaway than it was on the A052. P1 pinched rear 345 early afternoon We swapped the 315/18 rear for new/unused 345/25/19 on 19x11. Mike did some burnout action to scrub the tires a bit before run 1. 295/30/18 on 18x10 front, 345/25/19 on 19x11 rear Mike 39.791 (dirty) 40.30 Mike thought the rear was a bit excessively loose. I expect it was still not quite scrubbed. I told him he was overdriving, I was riding with him for these two runs. We observed some interesting wear that reminded me of the wear noted in the GRM test, not to that extreme but in the same vein. 40.982 39.557 video 4/21/2024 1:36 https://youtu.be/SOlq8OLKaV4 Dallas 40.664 38.878 video 4/21/2024 1:49 https://youtu.be/tSFggXX4xWM Mike tries 345s again 39.184 39.131 A052 afternoon Lets try the A052 again, keep in mind the surface has warmed a good bit in the afternoon sun since this morning and over the day, some improvement is likely due to this plus just better understanding of how to attack the course Dallas 41.982 38.730 video 4/21/24 2:11 2 https://youtu.be/qXG9QWPN-zU Mike 39.264(dirty) 39.105 4/21/24 2:19 https://youtu.be/4O_YFyh8C7M I mounted up the 295/315 P1 to give that another shot as I fully expected I could match the 38.7 time with the improved conditions and better familiarity with the course, however the event was ended, with another worker shift obligation needed to do more runs and I did not have enough time to do a work shift and do more runs due to other obligations that day. Either way a productive test day for sure! Results had us 3rd/4th PAX for the day. #1 spot was held by a STX FRS on the 245/17 P1, the same one I co-drove and did a write up on in this group a few weeks ago. GS Civic on I believe RE71RS taking the #2 spot. This event did not have too many of the usual fast guys as it was not a competition event.

Finally got to have my first true experience on the P1s last weekend. Was very happy with the results. Im still getting used to the car being a very new build. I saw 1.42 of cornering Gs .9 acceleration and 1.11 braking. Excited to get more comfortable with the car and push the tires further. Have a lot of work to do on myself to truly be competitive Car is 91 Miata at 2500lbs with me in it. 4b11t from an evo X making 425whp in this video pared with faceplated sequentially shifted t56 and a cobra IRS.

The P1s have more flying laps

ViTour P1 vs Yokohama A052 Wear http://ViTourp1.com These were brand new at the beginning of this weekend. Rear left corner. Both 315/18 The P1s have more flying laps if anything as they were ran to checkered. The A052 were so greasy on lap 3 it wasn't worth pushing it. The A052 were sprayed, well more accurately, hosed down, between attempts. Without spraying the 2nd driver, even with the first driver doing 2 laps and coming in, and a 20 minute heat before going was at a disadvantage on the A052 due to lack of heat tolerance. Zero spraying was needed or done with the P1s, and they offered more flying laps. The A052 are noticeably closer to wear bars, the corner wear is noticeably more. The P1s look like they've been scrubbed. Not even close to the wear bars.

Great first impressions

Great first impressions from my 315/30R18 & 345/30R18 ViTour Tempesta P1s. I ran them on 18x12s. 345s won't quite fit on the front without revising my fenders. The P1s helped me dominate the autoX segment at the Pro Touring Truck Shootout and win the Outlaw class. Plus I was able to cut an 11.922 @ 123.85 mph to yet again secure the Ultimate Truck title. Who knows, it might be time for a set of 18x13s and 345s square.

The first session went great

Made it through day one at Gridlife CMP with the Track Mod class lead! But not without any issues. The first session went great with new pb right out of the gate. The second session I lost power steering which I found out is very helpful running the new ViTour Tempesta P1 345 front and rear. A power steering line fitting started leaking from a fitting connected to the rack. A new O ring and thread sealant both didn’t fix it, so JB weld it was. The third session of the day was the first qualifying session of the weekend and everything finally worked and I got the new Track Mod lap record and first in qualifying. We have two more qualifying sessions tomorrow, then the top 5 in each class have a two lap shootout tomorrow afternoon to finalize the top 5 positions in class for the weekend. Tomorrow is live streamed on Gridlife’s YouTube channel. I also posted my qualifying laps to my YouTube https://youtu.be/jLMbToSaDjc?si=Ykpb2rsg-_sIHOPQ. Go check it out!

ViTour P1 performed flawlessly

Just a few pictures from the Miata Super Cup race last weekend at Willow Springs. The spec tire ViTour P1 performed flawlessly all weekend with many racers posting their personal best lap times. I laid down a 1:32.5, which as only a couple of hundredths off the fast time of the weekend and it was on a set of P1s that we’ve been testing on for over a year and a half. This tire is amazing.

Our runs were in 40F temps.

Borrowed this 86 on new 245/17 P1s today at the first solo points event of the Indiana season with Columbus region. We were 3rd / 4th pax until second half ran with a lot more fast guys that also had the benefit of afternoon sun and better temps/conditions, and IMO generally better cars (Corvettes). Our runs were in 40F temps. First run was getting the mold release off. Second run we had some but not all grip and third was full song. I ran my Lotus in yesterdays fun event/TNT in similar conditions however on its third run it hooked so hard on the launch with the 345 P1s I broke a motor mount! http://p1.tires http://ViTourp1.com

ViTour P1 on Road Course

ViTour P1 on Road Course test at NOLA Car specifics: 08Z06 3200# Alignment front -3.4 camber, +6.5 caster,0 toe. Rear -2.1 camber, 1/16 toe in. Wheels and tires R18x13 with 345/30/18 and F18x12 with 315/30/18. Weights to balance tires ranged from 1/4oz-2oz on my worst wheel. Cold pressure start 26F and 26R Lap pressure climb 34F and 32R Day was overcast temp 65-70 Tires had 8 autox runs to scrub them in. The tires performed extremely well on road course. First lapout they were pushy in front and loose with power to rear. On second lap with temp they came in and continued to improve lap after lap. The front had very good turn in and were comparable to stones in feel. The rears were incredible putting power down on corner exit. I would compare the rears to A052’s in rear bite and slip angle but more! The P1’s inspired confidence in ability to push to grip limits in turns without snapping loose. The tires never felt overheated and grip level continued to improve. As results shown below my fastest laps were at the end of session. Disclaimer: During lap 4 we had a black flag stop for a spun car stranded on course. Also all laps were in passing traffic. The last two laps i had clear running room. After session tire temps across tire were within 10 degrees from side to side. Tire wear from the 25 min session was minimal. The wear was incredible compared to my experience with other popular 200TW tires. The center tread was not deformed and the outsides had very little wear at all. I belive the tire worked best at 31R and 33F. The tires were just a little more squirmy at lower pressures. As a comparison on second session I used Hoosier A7’s of comparable size on 8x12’s. The hoosiers were faster in every segment. They were 3 seconds faster per lap time. I did notice after lap 4 the hoosier rears started getting greasy and drive out of turn not as good. Im pleased with the performance the P1’s produced. During first initial autox runs the P1’s were slick until scrubbed.
