Dunlop Official Tire of Blackhawk (MOTOVID Days)

Saw this on RRW last night.
I might be wrong.. but it has always seemed to me the Autobahn crowd mostly ran Michelin and ran with STT - and the Blackhawk crowd mostly ran Pirelli and ran with NESBA.

Looks like (at least according to this article) all tire service at the track and all CR's are now going to be on Pirelli..

Kind of surprised this hasn't made it up here yet.

"Dunlop Named Official Tire Official Motorcycle Tire of Blackhawk Farms Raceway"

Not pasting in per RRW terms.

That's what I am wondering and why I posted it.. Does that mean all the NESBA guys are switching to Dunlop then?
What about Cyclepath etc? Are they switching.. and or TurnOne?

Sounds just like a label to me. I think Dorrito's are the official chip of the super bowl, but that doesn't mean that you can only eat those while watching it.

Nope just CRs, racers can run what they want I'm sure, but the only tire vendor there will be Dunlop, so bring your own other brand of tires if that's what you prefer.

Ken - that effectively means it's going to be a Dunlop shop.
Tire service might not *dictate* you run a specific tire.. but pure lack of service for any brand but one basically means everyone is gonna end up running the brand that is sold, supported, and installed.

Aside from the couple % hard cases who are willing to do whatever to be brand loyal

I wasn't sure if they would even M&B other brands from reading the article.
Imagine nobody is gonna turn money away.

I know it was effectively a Pirelli shop before.. That's why I mentioned it.. I don't know that it was "officially" Pirelli only or that was the main brand of the trackside vendors there most often.. I imagine if STT went there they brought Michelins with them. I imagine that's not going to happen anymore.

I am not for or against this. I just posted it as I thought it was the kind of info we were supposed to share on here... I know this place is 10% motorcycles.. Just trying to do my part to get us up to 11% motorcycle content.

How do the CR's feel about this? Are you guys going to continue running P or switch to D?
I know a couple guys are already on Dunlop.. or at least one.. Hix (but we all know that from the epic Ron/Dustin thread)

just to note, I have not had my own tires M&B'd when the vendor sold a different brand but i had asked other people about it and I was told it wouldnt be a problem.

The article also doesn't mention NESBA either - just all level track days and Motovid.
I am not sure what the all level days are

Only the Motovid events will be Dunlop only. Last year they were Pirelli only. Other orgs (NESBA, STT, CCS) can sell whatever tires they want. Tire service will be done by a Dunlop crew, apparently the same crew that goes to AMA events.

The "All Levels Track Days" are the Wednesday Motovid trackdays at Blackhawk Farms. They also do clinics on the Fridays before CCS race weekends (unless that has changed this year.)

Motovid staff - CRs and Video bikes will be required to run Dunlops at Motovid events. This is similar to last year when they were asked to all run on Pirellis.

its prolly just a sponsorship thing, i'm sure tire manufacturers will still be at the races. during CCS races you will find all the brands have reps there dishing out tires. as for track days, well thats ALWAYS been a hit or miss type of thing.

I read it. It appears to be an agreement that is worked out with Motovid. Motovid operates the Wed. trackdays at BHF and riders clinics on the Fridays before CCS events.

This would apply to those events.

Racetire Service is this regions Dunlop distributor and trackside vendor.

I'm sure the other vendors will be allowed at race and other organizations events. But for the Motovid operated days, Dunlop will be the sponsored tire.

The pirelli thing was not enforced last year as I ran a non pirelli tire being a CR. Dunlop is spending big money at BHF so it was my understanding talking to Bill Casper yesterday that if you don't run dunlop you won't be CRing for motovid. We will know more onthe 20th.

Reading the article that's what I wasn't sure about..
I was wondering if they entered an exclusive contract and were not going to let other vendors in...
Obviously they would more than likely let people run whatever they wanted - but if they didn't allow the vendors to mount other brands or sell other brands.. Effectively BH would become an almost all Dunlop shop..

Hopefully that is not the case (not that I have anything against Dunlop)

Yeah, I ran Michelins as it wasn't worth it to buy the Pirellis to CR two days, but this year sounds more strict.

Of course the other riders can use whatever brand you want, but the only tires available at the track with be the Dunlops.


Doesn't matter to me since we're not riding anywhere at all this year.

No health insurance coverage for any kind of motorsport except helmeted street riding.

(No track days, racing, dirt, ice, ATV, etc.)

We have however been looking at new ways to injure ourselves that don't involve motors.

I wasn't sure if the "all level track days" and motovid were the same or if they just didn't want to list all of the other orgs and said that...

If that's the case.. I guess it will mainly only affect the CR's.. Who I was initially asking about anyway.

Most people I know have said the P and D's were closer than D to M's.. So. I assume there won't be that much of a difference.

That blows. Did they learn of your hobby somehow ? I'm sure you can buy your way into it. That obviously will not be cheap.

Imagine if they decided to be hard ass about it and let you run them - but wouldn't let anyone change them and or sell them at the track.

Wouldn't it be the tracks call in the end? I would think the track would have final word not CCS - I doubt it'd be a big enough deal for CCS to pull the races off the schedule and not go back - they would just deal.

Again - it's probably not going to go that far

Is this an employer or union provided insurance coverage or a group plan you've purchased or is it an individual policy you purchased?
The AMA, MRF and local rights groups like A.B.A.T.E have been working hard to put an end to health insurance discrimination along with other groups like horse riding groups and skiers groups. This is poised to possibly become an even bigger problem and an answer to this question would be helpful information.

you know how many tracks would shut down? no track with any sense would make a deal like that. that be like road america saying, "only toyotas are allowed to race here" they would be closed up the next weekend.

you know how many tracks would shut down? no track with any sense would make a deal like that. that be like road america saying, "only toyotas are allowed to race here" they would be closed up the next weekend.
I am not saying it's a great or good idea.
I was just reporting what I saw that I thought would be important news to fellow riders..

If I assumed every stupid rule wasn't as stupid as it sounded because it was too stupid to be true.. I'd be wrong even more often than I am.
