Toyo R888 Temporarily Added to Spec Miata Eligibility

TOPEKA, KS (SCCA) – Sports Car Club of America’s Club Racing Board has approved the use of the Toyo Proxes R888 in addition to the Toyo Proxes RA1 for Spec Miata National competition effective immediately. The inclusion of the Proxes R888 is in response to limited quantities of the Proxes RA1 in the United States following the earthquake in Japan. 

In addition to the 205/50ZR 15 Toyo Proxes RA1, the 205/50ZR 15 Toyo Proxes R888 will be eligible beginning with races this weekend. While there is currently no end date for eligibility of the Proxes R888, SCCA has reiterated that only one tire will be eligible for use at the 2011 National Championship Runoffs. SCCA stated this in the May 2011 issue of Fastrack®, the official member notification newsletter. 

“Based on discussions with Toyo Tires this week, Proxes RA1 inventory levels are expected to return to normal by the end of June,” SCCA VP of Club Racing Terry Ozment said. “Neither Toyo nor SCCA want the supply issues from Japan to affect an SCCA racer’s ability to race, so we have elected to allow both tires until sufficient levels of the Proxes RA1 are back in the United States. 

“The CRB has determined that only one tire will be used at the Runoffs, with the Proxes RA1 being the preferred tire. However, if sufficient levels are not available, the Proxes R888 would be the second option. That determination will be made at a later date.” 

A formal Club Racing Memo was released today allowing both tires for the Spec Miata class until further notice.
