Developed from Bridgestone's motorsport technologies, including the brand's Formula One expertise, the Potenza RE-11S is designed to perform under extreme conditions and offers high-speed performance on the racing circuit.
As official tyre sponsor for Mr. Yusoff, Bridgestone's technicians will accompany him to all track days to assist him with tyre matters. On Saturday, the 11th of June, Mr. Yusoff took his Mitsubishi Evo onto the Sepang track to test the new tyres and see how they hold up.

Apparently you don't need two hands on the wheel while blasting down the main straight at 200km/h.
Also present on the track were a divese mix of cars including a legion of Civic Type Rs, several booming GT-Rs, race-bred GT86s and BRZs, as well as a spunky little Caterham!
