Given 46% while driving a Mazda RX8 (235/40 R18 W) on track for 2,000 spirited miles
Used as track tyres on Mazda RX8. In my opinion they need too much attention in temperature handling. You overheat them and the grip is gone. In range 40-80 Celcius they were fine, but anything above and really over 100*C they are starting to give up in every corner. Good tyre in comparison to it's price but if you need something that would last you little longer and give more grip then better find something else. Response was good, it felt tight and went where you want them to. As a big minus this tyre is going to change it's pressure every lap, so keep that in mind. You need to start really low to keep it happy and cool. :)

This is killer of a tyre - and not just for the price. Wonderful handling and grip (in the dry), withstands abuse that kills Cup2s in 30mins. On a heavy car, mine survived (barely) one tarmac rally, one day at Spa, one at Nordschleife and four other track days. They are heavy, loud, but cheap.

Given 89% while driving a Westfield 2l zetec 200hp 600kg (195/50 R15) on track for 1,000 spirited miles
used in competition this tyre gave me more grip then r888, r1r or yokohama a048. i was even faster on extreme tyres then i was on avon slicks!
steady under heavy braking,
very easy to find the limit of the tyre and still easy to control once you're over the limit
i'll never drive another tyre on track again
i tested r5 and r7 compound, both withstand heavy track abuse on high track temperatures.
