GT Radial 86CUP Tire Contingency Program

86CUP competitors may earn GT Radial tires as they score championship points.

GT Radial will award one (1)  free tire to a competitor for every 10 championship points cumulatively earned in the same 86CUP region.


Championship points scored at a 86CUP event will only count towards the 86CUP GT Radial Tire Contingency Program when a driver:

  1. Displays two GT Radial decals or a GT Radial windshield banner during 86CUP events. GT Radial decals will be provided at 86CUP events free of charge.
  2. Competes with a full set of GT Radial Champiro SX2 or HPY during a 86CUP event, in a class with a minimum of 3 competitors total.

At cross-region 86CUP events (July 15 Sonoma, Dec 9 Laguna Seca), each region will have separate scoring. Drivers may participate in one or more regions at cross-region events. However, only event championship points from one of the regions will be counted towards the GT Radial contingency for each driver. The contributing region will be whichever the driver participated in first during the year. If it is the driver’s first 86CUP event of the year, the driver may indicate the region that should contribute its results towards the GT Radial tire contingency program.

The maximum number of free tires that may be awarded to a 86CUP participant in 2017 across all regions and classes is capped at eight (8).
