The last race of the season...

For Warbird Racing that is! This Sunday.

Just got finished puting on my new to me Ohlins Triple and new Dunlop 208gp's.

Now, I just need to get to the track early enough to get some real practice and tuning in before the flag drops.

I'm #2 in points for two classes. 600 Superbike and Unlimited Superbike. Here's a link:

Re: The last race of the season...

Good luck and have fun doing it.

About your tires....I do have a special person looking for me but was just wondering where you buy your Dunlop 208gp? Mine are about done so I need another pair.

Got 'em second hand from a WERA guy. Don't think they make the 208's anymore. You might have to go to the 209's or next year the NT.

Re: The last race of the season...

Abtech posted a link recently for getting tires directly from Dunlop. Do a search thay had 208gp on their site if I remember right.

It's amazing how stupid some people can be.

Good luck to you and mediocre luck to the fellow ahead of you in points


Any Tucker Rocky dealer should still have Dunlop 208GP tires in stock. When I looked at the Dunlop site it does not appear they plan on discontinuing them. If you are looking to upgrade to a 209 they are also called SportMax GP (not at all obvious)
