Lee from what I have read im sure you have to run on the tyres you start the event with unless weather conditions come into it i.e. hot weather to torrential down pour on the safety side of things.

Lee you are so good at getting things organised,
I would never thought of trying to get a tire man to come to events to change tires,

What tires are you bringing with you?
Can I ask why you would want to change your tires through the day,

Or are you after a tire man to bring sprint tires with him so we can buy them when we get there?

First year of 22b series there was a tyre fitter at most events selling new & used tyres

By the time you have swapped tyres on rims you've missed a couple of runs.

You would be better served having one set of mounted wheels/tyres for practice and one set of mounted wheels/tyres for timed runs, then a set of mounted wheels/wet tyres for if it rains. Any more than that is not practical at a sprint.

As said earlier, its unlikely you will have a tyre fitter, there is no money in it for them.
