Firestone have just introduced a Sports GP road tyre which looks for all the world like a racer and incorporates competition compounds but is of a much more robust construction. Firestone recommend them particularly for Beach Buggies and for Lotus Elan +2s. Lotus 7s, Escort RS 1600s and the like. We haven’t tried a set and presume that the road holding is superb but wear limited. More details from Firestone Racing Division, Great West Road, Brentford, Middlesex.
