I don't know which BTCC you're referring to but the one in England didn't
have a control tire (tyre?) rule for '97 ... how could it?  Audi ran Dunlops
and most everyone else ran Michelins!

There was a tyre rule adopted for '98 to make sure every team has equal
access to tires but it doesn't limit manufacturers to offering only one
compound or size, as you are suggesting ... read it yourself at the BTTC's
official website http://www.btcc.co.uk/news/tyres.htm.

Perhaps you folks living in and around the St. Louis area should start
drinking bottled water...  ;^)
