    I wish DMack to get to the level of Michelin or Pirelli. They deserve some success for their determination.

    So the tyres were not ready when they done the test with Tanak that's why they used mainly Michelin and Pirelli ?

    The only reason the Michelin and Pirelli tyres were there was for comparison, I think... We can only hope the new tarmac tyre is a lot better than the previous ones.

    probably they had several types/compounds of dmacks, and wanted to measure which one was closest to the benchmarks.

    The Tanak press release said they were taking loads of different Dmack tarmac compounds to try out.

    How do you know how much they used? You were there? They had 12 new compounds to test and like has been said here Tšnak also drove with Pirellis and Michelin's for comparison.

    There was a little interview with Tšnak again couple a days ago and he said that the test gave him a lot of optimism and was like a early christmas present because Dmack has developed the tyre massively since last year and they are going to the right direction. i think he meant the tarmac tyres.
