Pirelli P Zero Trofeo R vs Toyo R888 vs Giti GitiSport GTR3. What's the best track day tyre?

What's the fastest trackday tyre? What's the best track day semi slick tyre to use on the road and track? I take 3 very different track day tyres and put them on a BMW M2 to see which is best in the dry and wet. The video was shot at MIRA and Cadwell Park in the UK.

Below the video is all the technical data from the test. If you have any further questions once you've watched the video, please feel free to comment on YouTube and I will answer the best I can.
