I emailed Tim Gilvin at Hoosier with our concerns when we started this discussion on line. Tim called me this morning and we spoke for a bit and He and Hoosier completely understand our concerns. Hoosier is anxious to deliver us a wet tire that we are all after. Hoosier has several good ideas on how to get there. The goal being a real rain tire that lasts several competitive sessions with little to no drop off. Hoosier engineers will be working on a new wet tire for SM. They will be testing different compounds and tread designs to see how to best accomplish our goals here.
As a long time SM competitor, I have beyond satisfied with the Hoosier tire and even more with their support and constant willingness to work with the SM community. This is customer service at its' finest. I'm sure more news will be released as this project progresses. I'm sure Hoosier will work with SCCA to fade the old H20 out. I just wanted the community to know that Hoosier is definitely addressing the wet tire issue and I have 100% confidence that we will be deliver another great tire as they have doing since 1958!
Thank you Hoosier, this is really good news!
