Feel­ing hot, hot, hot...

Performance Bikes (UK) - - RACE LEGEND -

THE HEAT­WAVE OF 2018 was in full swing, with the air tem­per­a­ture a scorch­ing 34-36°C. There wasn’t a breath of wind as the Don­ing­ton Park tar­mac baked in the wall to wall sun­shine. The com­bi­na­tion of the high track and air tem­per­a­ture made it phys­i­cally hard work for Rutter, and more so for the tyres. We dropped the rear tyre pres­sures to just 20psi to com­pen­sate for the ex­treme heat of the day and power of the bikes, once Rutter re­ported the rear grip to be in short sup­ply af­ter only a cou­ple of laps. The lower than nor­mal pres­sure (28psi) did the trick.
