Hi all!

Just wondered if anyone had any idea on how to track down who used an f1 tire?

It's a good year eagle, an intermediate from early 90's by the looks of it - it HAS been used but we think in a practice session at a GP....

Is there anyway of tracking down whose tyre it was from the various serial numbers on it? It's a left front....

Any help or advice would be very much appreciated....our initial thinking is monaco 93.....but that's only from "hand me down" comments over the years...

The Patch.

On the sidewall there should be a datecode showing when the tyre was made

So if it was 1993 ...it could for example be 2793

This would mean the tyre was produced on the 27th week of 1993

Hope this helps?

The info on the tyre is:

275369-93F20RG

Which looks like it was on the tyre 'out of the mould'.

There are other numbers which look 'branded in' after...

D4614 looks like a batch number

5VTS MB22 D6R3 ?

Thanks for the help - if you've any more clues - would be appreciated....

We were reading the 93F as 1993 Front - wondered if the 20RG was some sort of event code?
