According to a press release issued April 10 by Morgan Broadhead, special dual-compound Michelin tires designed for use at Willow Springs will be available for the balance of the WSMC season and for the April 19-22 Formula USA National at the Rosamond, California racetrack. The press release read as follows:<BR><BR>"Freddie Spencer's High Performance Product Line recently received a shipment of special Michelin Pilot Race tires for use at Willow Springs International Raceway. The 'Willow' DOT tires will be available trackside through Racers Edge Performance during all remaining WSMC events and round two of the Formula USA National Road Race Series. <BR><BR>"Willow Springs International Raceway is known to be one of the toughest tracks for the tire manufacturers to come to grips with. The ultra-fast turn 8-9 combination puts incredible stresses on the right side of tires while the left side is used in only three corners. This special dual-compound rear tire was developed specifically for Willow Springs and features a very soft left side coupled with a durable right side to handle the unique stresses Willow Springs puts on a tire.<BR><BR>"For more information please call Morgan Broadhead at Freddie Spencer's High Performance Product Line: 702-591-8915."<BR><BR>
