Racing tyres

after scrubbing in my new tyres, taking it easy n all it got me wondering how do the racers get around this???

I usually remove the sticky labels and just go out on track and get on with it. One lap is all you need normally to have the tyre scrubbed. Saying that, I usually only take a few miles on road tyres as well.

There are different schools of thought on the race tyres, you can coat them in liquid brake cleaner and rub like mad, this gets rid of the outer shiny stuff. You can also take a wire brush to the edges. I have tried all combinations, but, it seems as though its more in your head than anything else.
