Lexus ISF autocross racing on new Michelin Pilot Super Sport tires
Tires are a key component when it comes to traction and grip in any kind of racing. I was able to test out my new Michelin Pilot Super Sport tires in my second Lexus ISF autocross race. The new tires really transformed how the ISF felt. With the old tires, the car was really loose and it was difficult to keep the 400 horsepower in check when accelerating out of corners. In addition, the lack of grip made the car very unstable and a bit scary to drive! The new Michelin PSS tires made the Lexus IS-F much more predictable and provided a lot more grip. As a result, the ISF was a whole lot more fun to drive.
