The Turbo Trax was released in 2009 by VP-Pro Racing but replaced with the Turbo Trax 2.0 Evo tyre in late 2012. Now in January 2014 due to high demand, the Original Turbo Trax (V1) is back! This is a small pin, super low profile tyre that works best on hard packed blue groove tracks with or without dust. We also understand that the Version 1 Turbo Trax tyres will now come with the new orange MF-005 closed cell inserts.
