Flying Fortress Stages - Tyres...?

I'm thinking of entering the Flying Fortress Stages this year, and was wondering if anyone had advice on what type of tyre the venue needs? gravel or tarmac slicks? I've watched a few videos on youtube, but its hard to judge what the actual surface is like, can anyone help?

Thanks,

Mark

We did it in 2015 in an Impreza with cut intermediate tarmac tyres.  It rained during the morning and most of the smaller tracks and link sections just turned horrible slippy and greasy with a top layer of liquid mud !  We couldn't get any temperature into even our softest compound slicks and were adding more cuts at every service ...... if it's likely to rain then forest tyres are the way to go but if it's dry then flick a coin Smile
