Yoko A048s for Regional Solo events

For anyone running in the Street Category this year, a friend of mine just pointed out this rule to me:

2014 Rules, 13.3.C.1: "Any tire which is OE on a car eligible for Street Category may be used on a car in Regional Solo events."

That means the stock Yokos are legal in Street.

I normally run in a local Tire index (PAX class) which has its own treadwear rules, so I'm not planning to exercise the advantage of using the Yokos, but I thought I would post it up here for others.

The question is even with the lower tread wear rating are they as good as the toyos?

From my perpective the Evora S came with P Corsa's so they can be used.

Not really. The OP left out/changed a word:

"C. Other
1. Any tire which is OE on a car eligible for Street Category may be
used on that car in Regional SoloŽ events. OE tires must meet
all requirements of Section 13.3 to be eligible for National SoloŽ
events."

Has to be OE *on that car*.

And, it is for regional events, so who cares.
