About Zestino Tires Australia
2020 NSW Supersprint Championship Sponsors
Relatively new to Australia, Zestino Tires provide a range of motorsport oriented tyres that are designed in Japan and made under strict quality standards in China. This combination results in quality performance tyres at very affordable prices.
The 2020 Motorsport Australia Zestino Tires NSW Supersprint Championship is the pinnacle circuit speed event in this State. Well known for their competitiveness in drifting, Zestino Tires Australia has now introduced the amazing Gredge 07RS street legal track tyre and is sponsoring these Championships so that competitors can get to see in real life just how well these tyres perform.
The Zestino Gredge 07RS is one of the most affordable track tyres on the market and their performance is right up there with many semi-slicks. The Zestino Gredge is an ideal tyre for those who want to drive to the track on them and then run good lap times without paying nearly twice the price of a high end track tyre.
As there are not many cars running these tyres in NSW at the moment, the main way that competitors can research the actual performance of these tyres is through the internet. There are many reviews that can be seen by searching on the internet, the following are typical:

In late 2019, Andrew Kendall wanted to see how the Zestino Gredge 07RS tyres performed in local conditions. His first test was at a Wakefield Park Raceway track day where he experimented with tyre pressures and ended up equalling his semi-slick PB. His second test was on the Sydney Motorsport Park Gardner Circuit at Round 6 of the CAMS NSW Supersprint Championships where he took an incredible 1.8 seconds off his previous PB that was set on a set of semi slicks. Please note that these comments are Andrew’s and not necessarily those of the Panel. Andrew was Runner-up Type 2 Champion in 2019.

Zestino Gredge 07RS Road Legal Track Tyre
The Zestino Gredge 07RS road legal track tyre has been approved by the Motorsport Australia NSW Supersprint Panel for use as a Road Tyre in the 2020 Motorsport Australia Zestino Tires NSW Supersprint Championships. This tyre has D.O.T. and E-Mark certification and complies with the requirements of article 8.1(c) of Schedule E of the Motorsport Australia Manual. This tyre is very competitive with “R” spec semi slicks as well as being legal for road use. It’s direct competitors are the Toyo Proxes R888R and the Bridgestone Potenza RE-71R.
One of the reasons for the Gredge 07RS’s great performance is it’s 140 treadwear which is very sticky for a road tyre. Not good for big road mileage but great at track days! They should also last longer than semi slicks with 60 or 80 treadwear ratings!
More information about this tyre below:
The Zestino Gredge 07RS series are a soft, grippy performance tire for serious track enthusiasts and race car drivers.
Center Straight Groove
Two wide center grooves ensure efficient channeling of water for improved traction in wet conditions. A rigid center rib provides a constant contact patch, allowing for improved traction and stability under acceleration.
Variable Wing Groove
Two variations of wing grooves are placed along the outer tread with different lengths and angle. The Longer groove assists in channeling and dispersing water out of the shoulder while allowing for improved cornering performance. The shorter groove provides directional stability.
The Lightning groove combined with the variable wing grooves allow for improved lateral traction for maximum side bite.
Side dimples allow drivers to check the degree of wear and the effective contact patch area at a glance.
