Kim Adams' Verdict:
'I have driven this tyre on everything from a Porsche 911 to a 350bhp Ford Mustang at tracks as diverse as a soaking handling circuit and the home of the Spanish GP but whatever the conditions it remains mightily impressive. With powerful machines like these you need a progressive tyre that gives plenty of warning when the limit is being approached and the SportContact™2 delivers in both dry and wet inspiring you to use all the performance available.'
