ABOUT THIS EPISODE

With Dean Harrison making a high profile switch to Dunlop tyres from Metzeler's, we decided it would be a good time to discuss the top tyre compounds at national, International roads events.

We cover them all, the aforementioned brands plus Pirelli, Bridgestone and Michelin.

Our latest podcast also features a round up on the CRMC action at Mallory Park, Julian Trummer's first Oulton Park tenure.

Exciting news from HeatTech Racing, the re-introduction of heat races into the Oliver's Mount Spring Cup schedule and a bamboozoler question with a twist!

He's a he's getting a lot of right times. I think over this this last year in the bit all it's up theroad races. I don't really guess. He's done close to the most frighttown. Yeah, because he is.

I don't Nethers B top Classic FistRacer. Want a lot of beard, a lot of respect wherever it was, but everyone very real rasential. But I don't know. It was baby'sa bit of an error on that and I got to talk to him lastyear. That the Gold Cup. I think it was a parachuting classic orThe barishing carry. So yeah, yeah, and it was quite put Potbo whenI said to quite a lot. I said to him your house wasbut dis good is he's he's mega with his old any girls. was alsocompeting awesome with abats in clairs, good yester, a classics racer.

...your commersalten park. As she foughtJulian, the weather wasn't suppose the best for the one who was and theother lot of bad. Look, he had an energy. The chicol problempretty race one, but is the why? HAH, racing s fos of theare are being and in the second race they've been in sing the base. All right, yes, and track down and Julian and he's uppings competeare my right. So I've been sed as as Julian Amongst Austria's best racistunder in the two thousand and sixteen will comes back from prey. But yes, yeah, and it's also been a putting finish at Froberg. Jens Jamesmust famous active road speaking. Coming up this week it's going to be Europethe ban new road race in Mexico called the Durango race is run by theCave road race organ houses. Sort of keeping close eye on that. It'sin a way to be similar to the cave road race. It's nature.But again, great to see more road races in North America's getting bigger andbigger. The following incent in particular in Central America, Mexico. Yeah,as well they can. I can see the big market. Obviously Columbia asa day of our road race. Not a Mossi have the valley. Theyhave a massive passion for motorcycles. Grows in Mexico and God, good tosay mentioned heat a creationally will be running free rounds at the sprinkle. Ohyeah, so a began. Col that is in it, Dan Irison,map race and Thomas Maxwell or Thomas Maxwell. They know, know it. Elsbron, nobody's are the Thomas Maxwell. We know about Thomas Maxwell. He'sno, no, slow, slow game. Thomas Rograssing chunds though about yeah.Well, yeah, but he's and he's he's level as he is.He's got a great approach to his race. He has. So we're really lookingfor to seeing in the scamper's been a scambard before, I like.There's a cooms a new conway. It...

...was choky. There was a jamshop. Yeah, James Show. So yeah, it will. It willtell with it quite quick or would have thought. Yeah, it's completely nota circle twin. I think he's also going to have a six hundred there, but I'm not sure, not sure. I love be if he's on thesupper twitt that I'll be about right, I feel. Any scabre's, youknow, it's a very right. Yeah, I've also got twentions withthe heat races read rejuncted to the Spring Court. Yes, well, it'sa lot of controversy after it. I think it's good, but you see, the the used to be heat. So all the meetings years ago,yeah, and it was just I remember, no matter where it was shiny andgranny and perishing all the rest them all out of the ways and it'sgone with it and now there's a lot of controversies this. But now he'sfair. But as such as a scarborough. The races in no longer than eightlaps any other most of them six and as we all know that afterthe Fed lap, the roll seven, sectioning off from the front to therear. The AMT adders in a race anywhere. They so obviously some racesyou can get a footing, grouper, seven or eight kit, some veryoccasionally. Yeah, but to set off all together door, Oh yeah,yeah, so I and it's this same for everybody else. So I thinkit's, as I mentioned, done in an are Cole reason. Obviously it'scontracted an extraction, but having you some a bit different. So well,it's it's different what ing what it is is before it was sound practice.Yes, so they used to go out and look for a space, didn'tthey? And the benifast lapping and I get that. I don't get thatit's so qualified. But the thing is with it, with it, withthe heats. Yeah, he's a road...

...race ofder. was talking to whatthe weekend said. If there's a heat, you will got to get that wholeshot into me. Right. So there's only there's only a gap therein the for so many routers to get that old shot. And if they'vegone up that Elen the underneath that bridges, you're getting into that Apie, you'vegot a heck of Aage thing to catch up to him. So Ican see the point of view what what this guy was telling me. SoI get that. But it's going to be heat. So there's got toyou've got to think of a different strategy on there where we're going to be. Wish you mention is all that in terms of the results in the heats. That exactly the Yes, is so many qualifying perfuy for the air BEAsupport risks getting based on the fastest lap? Yes, so if you break down, if you've done it, I want fifty point four. So well, when it would qualify, if I'm many, how many is the formmany ends a race? It's twenty ten. So well, if we're looking pay, it's roughly going to be seven. No, but I'm no money.Bakes are going out in a heat two thousand and two, twenty two, so over twenty. Yeah, so what? How many of them canqualify in the heat? I would be qualified to get through to the youknow, to the a fam. It's going to be based on the laptimes, on the laptams. So if so, if you aage, soI'm assured me that Dan and Lee will be there. Right. If theat yeah, so that day backup points at the then all that. Sadly. So, if you're like six and you're own a group of radders ofwhatever rathers the air and you're hanging on the tail of them, you're goingto get a fast lapping at it. It's almost a bit like you know, watch them. I'll be like, you know, when you watch themrunning races, you don't have to get certain time to get to the littlebit about a bit like that. Yeah, yeah, so they some of differently. I mean at the Phosol at...

La Times be Bo the imagine foreach with let's say David leaves up one fifteen. The thing is, thething is, if you did, I mean I don't know, but dateI would have thought Dan'll go out in his aid and and as long ashe's if's still round as in front of him and they're are in front ofhim, battle or three bikes, it's going to it's just going to stealwithin it and maybe, just maybe, banger fast slapping, because that willdid dedacted. Depicts where you're going to be on the grid it, solong as you're on that front land from a alsoia. That seems to merapping, which is a four adders on the front Bro. Yes, itgoes for three four, three, four, three, I think than it anywaysome like that. So, yeah, so the old know this strategrapp it'scrucial. Yeah, but the old noticeable, the old know this strategy. Oh, yeah, yeah, so, yeah, so right on it.Yeah, it's somewhat different as it's making a get of an all timegreat subscribe, Garrat. It is it's planning to compete, should say,it's hoping. been massive amounts of publicity about this, which is, youknow, I'm quite surprised as being on the on a media thing and talkingall about it all this look, because it's quite coolstible wars in they butyeah, it's good that he's going and it makes tend to put the springcomputer. Yeah, is put in doing supperbate racing and class is doing isbe on these gigsu and his bass, which is fair enough. So it'sis can get more. Was a bit of fun than be Super Serious?Yeah, obviously you got to be serious. Yes, bis of speed and all. I suppose that's very much on you. When he fasted out.Yeah, yeah, it's good for the fans. And here. Oh yeah, built, is it build, Bill Kennedy? Is that how I yeah, he's chucked a little bit balls in.

And Gas partnersfrom something else and someone now and then here, which back at abit of a bit of an all of the year as well there. Yeah, yeah, could only speaking around where.

Well, well, and also the Trishana bill and steams upits compete as well, and other members of their team is the La shouldbe Barry Davidson over eighty five times in aarri's foods where. Yeah, yeah, that's in duel and it let you like Le Sure. Well, whatwas we got to mention over gradante twenty and twenty.

They very supposed to att last next year.Very, very surprised victor isn't one. We'll open the moldromatic. He's crucialin it. It runs next year because two years.
