In August Yokohama Tyres Australia held ADVAN track days at Winton Raceway and Wakefield Park.

The ADVAN Track Day at Wakefield Park in August was well attended. Hosted by Circuit Club it was also a fun day with a relaxed atmosphere.
We took the opportunity to do a tyre test at both race tracks. We performed an ADVAN Neova tyre comparison with the old AD08 up against the new AD08R with its new Orange Oil enhanced rubber compound.

We used a fairly standard 2009 Subaru WRX daily driver. We fitted two sets of skinny 17 x 7.0 +55 Subaru WRX OEM alloy wheels with new Neova AD08s and AD08Rs, both in the standard tyre size 225/45R17.

It's good using a full weight car and a narrow tyre size for testing. It really works the tyres and shows how good they really are. The Neovas have a nice texture, which shows they heated up and gripped up during the two days of punishment.
