KANSW introduces more-durable Option Tyres for Club Competition
- New Bridgestone YDS tyres have now become available and will be used at all Club Level Competition from 1st July, 2019.
- The new Bridgestone YDS tyres can be used for Practice immediately
The tyres have been selected based on their durability, with testing proving them to be longer-lasting tyres with acceptable performance characteristics.
The selection of the new optional tyres now provides a logical point of separation between Club and Zonal events and competitions from major State Series and Nationally Permitted events where the prime tyres are to remain in use.

The option tyres provide flexibility for Clubs and organizers of major Zonal and State Series, and State Trophy event organizers when consideration is given to what is best for each, whether more durability or greater performance is deemed to be more important.
Organisers of the State Cup and State Trophy (stand alone events of significance in NSW such as the Brian Farley Memorial event) will be able to nominate the selected tyre – either the option tyres or the prime tyres in the event Supplementary Regulations.
For National level events – State Championship, National Cup and the Australian Kart Championship, where outright performance is sought, the selected Prime tyres will continue to be used.
