I remember seeing a pic somewhere of a rack fitted to the Elise, and four tires strapped to it.

Does anyone know have info on such a rack? I typically like to drive to the track on street rubber (doubling as rain tires) and mount up R comps in the paddock. I've seen S2000 guys mount a small trailer to the car, but I'm not too keen on that, given the complexity/sophistication of the aluminum chassis.

I was just planning on driving my stickies down to the track ... it's only 30min door-to-pit-out. ;)
You lucky bassard. ;)

You know, perhaps it's not too much of an issue with such a lightweight car. With my M3, every weekend is an opportunity to cord a tire, whether Hooters, Kumhos, Toyos. Perhaps with a 2,000 lb car, tire wear so much more gradual, that I can better gauge whether a set of tires with a few weekends will continue to last.

I know those Miata guys go, like, all season on one set of R comps. ;)
