I got this from the Motorsport Club of Ottawa forum here: http://www.mco.org/phpbb/viewtopic.php?f=2&t=10095 (There's a few responses on this thread.)

SCCA announcement:

National SCCA Spec Miata to Return to Toyo RA-1 Tire in 2010
Club Racing06/11/2009

TOPEKA, Kan. (June 11, 2009) - Sports Car Club of America announced today that the National Club Racing Spec Miata class will transition to the Toyo RA-1 tire in the 2010 season.

The class ran on the RA-1 tire from 2006 to 2008, but switched to the newer Proxes R888 tire for 2009. After receiving input from the Spec Miata racing community, both Toyo and SCCA management agreed that a change back was warranted.

"We received considerable input on the subject of Spec Miata tires this year and that input was taken very seriously by both SCCA and Toyo," SCCA VP of Club Racing Terry Ozment said. "Toyo has been very receptive to this and will begin production of the RA-1 again for next year's season."

The complete transition process to the RA-1 will be determined and announced after the 2009 National Championship Runoffs®.

I know there's been some discussion over the R888s vs. the RA1s, so does anyone have any comments?
