A typical racer will get between 4 and 6 race meetings per set of tyres. This means that the average racer competing in a 6-round state series will be able to do a full season of racing on one set of tyres. A more serious racer who will race more often, and wishes to have softer rubber on hand may use 2-3 sets of tyres for a full season of racing.
Formula Vee now uses a dry/wet control tyre supplied by Dunlop, these tyres are sold distributed via local arrangement by each State Associations. The category has recently moved from using a control Dunlop Tyres.
Control tyres cost around $1200 per set.
