Maxxis tire picked for NASA’s BMW street-spec series

After extensive testing by the National Auto Sport Association (NASA), the Maxxis RC-1 has been chosen as the spec race tire for the NASA Spec E30 class from 2022 – 2024.

The recently updated Victra RC-1 with the R2 compound succeeded in NASA’s tests by delivering an optimum balance between dry traction, consistency, tire wear, heat resistance, and heat-cycle performance – something NASA racers are always seeking to improve.


The Maxxis RC-1 will be permitted in spec E30 races starting March 1, with all racers required to be on the RC-1 by May 1. In addition to its existing contingency program, Maxxis is offering a separate spec E30 contingency program that will award tires to drivers in both regional and national races. More details are posted on the NASA website.


This is Maxxis’ first foray into NASA spec tire racing. “We’re thrilled to be the spec tire to NASA’s Spec E30 series for the next three years,” said John Wu, director of product strategy for Maxxis International – USA. “The Victra RC-1 was designed for the needs of club racing, and everyone at Maxxis can’t wait to see these race-proven tires deliver in this exciting series.”


With more than 20,000 members and 300-plus events per year, NASA has something to offer every auto racing enthusiast. The organization allows both amateur and veteran drivers to test their skills in a safe, controlled environment at venues throughout the US.
