    Introducing the Bridgestone Potenza RE-71R – the ultimate in street legal track performance. Engineered to provide outstanding street and track performance, the Potenza RE-71R has built a strong reputation in both Japan and America, and thanks to popular demand, the Potenza RE-71R is coming to Australia. The Potenza RE-71R utilises UltimateEYE™ technology to maximise grip and response across street, track and wet driving conditions. Bridgestone’s newly-developed high-grip compound adapts to the road surface, maximising the Potenza RE-71R’s contact patch with the road and in turn providing an increased level of grip at high speeds and temperatures. Stiffer sidewalls, a wide centre rib and extreme shoulder block all work to promote better steering and cornering response, giving you the confidence to push harder through the corners whilst maintaining safe handling on the street. A rounded shoulder profile further improves the length of the tyre’s contact patch with the road surface, improving traction and minimising sliding during hard cornering. Wet weather performance isn’t sacrificed with the Potenza RE-71R, allowing you to maintain confidence even when conditions start to get slippery. Bridgestone’s unique directional “7-shaped” lateral grooves and use of wide circumferential grooves work to effectively drain water and maximise traction and steering response on wet surfaces. Impressions of the Potenza RE-71R have been extremely positive the world over. Tests have seen the Potenza RE-71R receive praise in America and Japan from both car enthusiasts and racing drivers alike, noting its outstanding grip and confidence-inspiring stability. A test day conducted by Bridgestone America allowed journalists to come and test out the Potenza RE-71R for themselves in a controlled environment. The tyres were fitted to stock Scion FRS’ and journalists took the cars out to play on a cone course. The Potenza RE-71R was praised for its immense levels of grip, allowing the driver to brake later and hold tight through corners. Autos.ca states “This kind of adhesion will inspire pure joy in track day enthusiasts”. CNET notes how the Potenza RE-71R neutralised the FRS’ natural oversteer characteristics, allowing the car to corner like it was on rails. Successful Super GT racing driver, Tetsuya Yamano, expresses his thoughts on the Potenza RE-71R in the video below. To benchmark the improvements of the RE-71A on the track, a Nissan Skyline GT-R 34 and a Toyota GT 86 hit the Tsukuba 2000 circuit. When tested against the previous RE-11A , the Potenza RE-71R for both cars returned a 1.4% faster lap time. On the 2nd hairpin and final corner, the test cars recorded a staggering 12% more G-force, and 3% greater minimum speed. Bottom line - if you’re looking for a tyre that you can drive to the track, put out some fast lap times and drive back home with, look no further than the Bridgestone Potenza RE-71R.
