Everyone has heard of dual-compound tires, but I wonder what the deal is here... with that obvious band running through the center. I've never seem something that pronounced on other racing tires.

Re: Colin's rear tire at Laguna... (Tripod-R)

The new Michelin Pilot Power Race tires look like that after a few laps. Only difference is the band is closer to the edge of the tire maybe 2" from edge. I thought my rear tire was coming apart the first time I seen it happen at Barber. Stuck like glue

Nicky did a brake stand at the corkscrew on his cool down lap.
