Not having many track days under my belt. I have a Oulton Park booked for the 27th. It looks like it will be pretty cold showing an average temperature of 5'C with reel feel 0'C, no rain. So the tarmac will be pretty cold as can be imagined.

Am i correct in thinking my avon zzr will be no good in that sort of temperatures and that i will struggle to get heat in them? Will I be better off with my road michelin pilot sport 3 rubber?

I did struggle to book a day when the weather was good, i finally got booked in and now I see why I got in and why there's loads of slots still left

Can't you take them both? I assume on separate wheels.
I've only been to Oulton once but it was damp in places for quite a while even though a dry day

You'll get a set of wheels in an M3 :)

I went to the 'Ring and back with a spare set of wheels. Fold down the rear seats and you'll fit four across the back no problem :)
