Michelins run a little less pressure than other brands. My area Michelin distributor (Island Racing) said to start the Pilot Power at 30fr/28rear. Power Race is 30fr/22rear

ask the officals or your instructer when you get there. when ever i've gone to track days, they are always willing to give you tips. but i believe i ran this past track day at Texas World Speedway, which is a super fast track cloudy, about 30f 27r so ya you da man is right on.

I just got back from Shannonville Motorsport Park where it was about 85 degrees and humid as hell. I ran 31 front and 30 rear on my '04 750. Pressures were a little higher on account of the weather. No complaints. Great tire.

I think he just ment pilot powers not power race. By the way i doubled checked my notes from the rep . The rear is 28 instead of 29 my bad front is the same 30f/28r He said if you are fast try 26/27r also. hope this helps

I have a set of POWER RACE Michelins ran 31f, 29r. Ran this at Streets of Willow
FYI - rear Power Race is recommended at 22 psi...29 is awfully high since it's 7 psi more than recommended
