F1 tyres on your se7en?!?!

Interesting idea.

Track days ARE the best thing since sliced bread, until I get a supercharger that is!

Yes that was a predictable outcome

The level of tyre loading in an F1 car is vastly higher than you'd ever achieve. However there are slicks, and semi-slicks, that offer a significant increase in performance over normal road tyres for lightweight non-aero cars.

Also, when not up to temp, they wear horribly.

It looked like a fun exercise though
