Sportsbike lover, Ron Haslam Elite instructor, raced in Thundersport GP1, Island Classic and Endurance Legends this year. HEIGHT 6ft WEIGHT 72kg email@example.com Summer trackday season is upon us and there’s still only one tyre for the job: Metzeler’s Racetec RR K3. On the road they’re plush, grippy and not too shabby in the wet. A rear lasts for over 2500 miles, too. But rock-up at a trackday, let the pressures down (33front/31rear) and they let you enjoy a superbike to the full. They grip like a race tyre, but unlike competition rubber don’t need tyre warmers, won’t shred if the track is too hot or cold and won’t degrade through heat cycles. There are other equally sticky track tyres out there and competent road tyres, but none offer the best of both worlds like the Metzelers.
