Yokohama Advan Neova AD09 rated 44% while driving a Chevrolet camaro
Driving on for 0 miles
I have RWD car, over 500HP, they do not hook for the life of it in first or second gear in WOT unless you baby the throttle. They are okay for daily driving, that's about it. Would not buy it for high HP car or track use, was very disappointed in performance. Will not buy again, once they are done will switch to something else.

Accelera 651 Sport rated 61% while driving a Renault
Driving on track for 3000 miles
Thought I would leave a review as I had a set on a mk4 rs clio which I then used on my mk4 rs megane trophy. On the clio which is about 1200kg these tyres were fantastic on track (oulton park UK). However on my megane around 1550kg although they were 100% controllable and "fun" even in the dry on the same track they squealed and I could not get heat into the fronts and slowed me massively in the corners. Admittedly 235 40 18 would be the correct size, i would conclude that because of the extra weight of the meg (500kg) these are are more suited to 1200kg max cars and below. Incredible value for money still.

Bridgestone Potenza Race rated 87% while driving a Toyota GR86
Driving on a combination of roads for 1500 spirited miles
I really enjoy the Potenza Race on my GR86. As you say, great reactive steering, not too noisy and they go around the track very well! I was going to use the OEM PS4 for street use but I hate how soft they feel so I run the Potenza Race on street too and they work great. Of course in the winter I will switch to proper winter tires. I have not driven extensively in rain but the rain I've driven in didn't cause any issues or felt unsafe.
I do have some wear on the outer shoulders from running on the track, but it might be because I'm running a moderate amount of camber for track use (slightly less than -3 degrees. On a McPherson strut I probably need closer to 4 degrees. But since its mixed usage I think it's going to even out over the life of the tires.)

Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 Connect rated 78% while driving a Hyundai i20N
Driving on track for 200 spirited miles
Used these exclusively on track with my i20N. They lasted 4 track days, averaging about 4 sessions each, about 250-300km in total. Suppose they could do another couple of sessions if I was feeling adventurous, but they look just about done. The last track day was at Brno with a track temperature of 54C which they clearly did not like. Overall happy with them, its been years since I spent so much time on track so don't have recent comparisons.Grip was good, although noticed quite a large difference in performance outside of the operating window.

Bridgestone Potenza RE 71RS rated 74% while driving a Mercedes Benz A45
Driving on a combination of roads for 10000 spirited miles
This tyre is like a RE11 with a firmware update. Was on PS4S for years but after changing to RE71RS, i knew the tyre is way better than the former.

And although the wear on the RE71rs was really bad, i will purchase this again. Only complain is the price increment.

Yokohama Advan Neova AD09 rated 90% while driving a BMW M140i
Driving on track for 2000 spirited miles
Ridiculously good in the dry, and even the wet once warmed up. The grip they generate is face bending once they're up to temperature, which they get up to after the first few corners. The road feel is unbelievable compared to even UUHP tyres like the Goodyear SS, which feels soft and wallowy in comparison, and have survived a round trip to the Nurburgring, including 10 laps with no discernible wear, the only tire I'll ever run on my car from now on. Only thing to watch out for is they run wide even compared to other semi slicks, a 265 is more like a 275 in width.

Extreme Performance VR2 rated 73% while driving a BMW 320i
Driving on track for 200 spirited miles
BMW E36 3.0i 1200kg,on 225/45/17 R7A: amazing on dry trackday ,very predictable compared with Federal and Westlake, consistent for more than 6 hard laps without cooling. The gripp is phenomenal from the first lap.I'm hard on brakes with CL RC 6 and never lock wheels even without ABS..amazing. Not tested in wet condition.For this price i'll never buy another semislick tire. Wear is normal for track use.

Nitto NT01 rated 74% while driving a MINI JCW GP2
Driving on track for 1000 spirited miles
I've driven the same set of NTO1s tyres on two different MINIs - lightweight FWDs with LSDs and BBKs - firstly an R56 John Cooper Works GP (GP2) on a hillclimb, and basically, these gave me an 'unfair advantage', in that they heated up quickly and gave me tons of grip and confidence on an unknown hill. They were spectacularly good fun. I then drove the same set of tyres on an R53 MINI Cooper S (also heavily modified) on a number of circuits, and the grip is outstanding, so much so that I could exit a tight corner on three wheels, lifting the inside front. Nothing else we've driven comes close. And surprisingly enough, they've held up to a lot of track work, and still have a couple of mm of useful life. They do respond to a good set up so you can make the msot of the nice clean consistent grip (they don't take an age to come on and then overheat). They're basically lethal in standing water though, as once the grooves have gone, they're like full slicks. Don't drive them in anything other than merely damp conditions. I'd buy them again if I could find them...

Yokohama Advan Neova AD09 rated 83% while driving a Hyundai I30N
Driving on mostly town for 5000 spirited miles
Fitted a set on my stock-ish i30N hatch (just replaced some front bushes to minimise wheel-hop) to replace a set of worn-out AD08'R's. The car is 95% road use with the occasional motorkhana thrown in - which is the main reason for running these tyres. (In fact I won a motorkhana series outright one year on the AD08R's!) It's hard for me to rave about the AD09's as the AD08's were such a phenomenal tyre. To be honest, I don't feel there is a huge improvement over the AD08's, except in wet weather performance, especially in reduced aquaplaning. So I would call the AD09's and evolutionary rather than a revolutionary step. They come into their own when you have a car that you want to indulge in some lower-level motorsport but don't want the hassle of buying another set of rims and constantly swapping them over. The one tyre will get you safely around town and do country runs in the wet and dry and then be ready for whatever spirited driving you want to throw at them. A pure blast driving them through a twisty country road where their sure-footedness and relative comfort allows you to safely push hard, knowing that a pothole or rut wont upset them too much. Because they've got 90% of their grip when cold, you can absolutely cane the opposition running A050's if competing in the wet. The only tyre that comes close when competing in the wet are the A052's but these are too soft for every day use. I would say hands-down, the AD09R is the best dual-purpose road-track tyre out there.
