The Drivers Edge Tire Requirements & Guidelines
The newer generations of driving school driver’s often bring vehicles whose performance is far beyond their driving ability, because of this the Drivers Edge Board of directors passed the following resolution that requires the vehicle to more closely match the driver's ability.
Green (Level 1) and Blue (level 2) drivers:
Exception: unless tires are OEM specified for that vehicle.
Yellow (level) and Red (level 4 most advanced) may run Race Tires:
A driver with out proper training before going to race tires is at a disadvantage, race tire mask many mistakes, don’t allow proper training, and create a safety hazard to lower level drivers, their instructors and others on the track.
Acceptable Tire Speed Rating:
Tires with a H speed rating or below (H,U,T & S) will NOT be allowed on track. These tires speed ratings are too low for track use and jeopardizes safety.
S 112 mph (not allowed on track)
T 118 mph (not allowed on track)
U 124 mph (not allowed on track)
H 130 mph (not allowed on track)
Z in excess of 149 mph
W 168 mph
Y 186 mph
