Marcus, if I could, I would send you the entire $1600 for the set. Unfortunately, I don't have much spare change right now. My own racing season is up in the air at the moment.

No worries, I understand, though the thought counts so I appreciate it

If one set of tires lasts you the whole season then you're doing it wrong.

Correct.

1 Set of tires lasts "about" 5-6 races for 1 driver. Scrubs are able to be purchased for the front tires, but rears, being 19", need to be bought new. It takes me 2 sets to complete the entire season by myself. More if I run national or other events.

In 2009, I ran 25+ weekends in my car with 2 other drivers. We burned up 6 sets and could have used a 7th. Both of the other drivers are past champions and very aggressive. The faster the driver, the shorter the life of the tires.

Also, this only includes Sunday competition days. Saturdays burn tires too. I will provide the shit tires to practice on Saturdays. Also, Estero Bay Chevrolet will be kicking in tires soon as well.

Fast drivers, clinging to the very edge of out of control, will burn tires very quickly. Hence the original comment, "if 1 set lasts you a season, you're doing it wrong" is technically correct and I don't believe it was meant as a derogatory comment.

Holy shit!!! Good Job Vette Barn.

Marcus deserves a chance.

Don't forget I'm the one putting my $80,000 Z06 on the line for a kid with potential. I get no benefit from these tires and I'm even contributing to the tire fund.

What a cool Forum project if we can turn a developmental driver situation into a national champion! We could all claim it as our own little victory.

Craig, I'm sorry I didn't touch more on the opportunity you're offering to him. It's an amazing once in a lifetime deal, running that car 6 +2 races costs way more than one set of tires.

When Marcus told me about it and that he likely couldn't afford it, I knew I really wanted to do what I could to help him out.
