    Inclusion of Vintage and/or Historic Tires

    Not a complaint really, just wondering why some cars include the choice for vintage or historic tires, while cars of similar vintage do not.
    How does this affect mixed-class racing?

    Example:
    Vintage: 1972 Lotus 72
    Historic: 1977 Lotus 78
    Without: 1973 Porsche 977 RSR
    Without: 1969 Chevrolet Camaro Z28

    PC Version
    Thanks!

    The Lotus' are race cars and the other 2 are road cars.

    Road cars converted to race cars ... but most definitely race cars in this iteration.
    Doesn't explain the lack of vintage/historic tires for the following race cars:
    1967 Ford GT40 MkIV
    1971 Porsche 908/03
    1971 Porsche 917/10
    There are others.

    I was wondering the same thing. The vintage Lotus have "track" and "vintage" tyres, with the vintage delivering less grip, but lots of other vintage cars from the 70s or 80s only have the track tyres. Is it just the Label or are "track" tyres relatively modern tyres?

    It is just the label. They still are historic tires, some of them are bias-ply tires, whilst modern tires are radial tires. You'll mostly notice the difference by the slip angle needed to be fast. Modern radial tires have a much lower slip angle than bias-ply tires did.
