Question Life span of a race tire

Just got a question about my michilin race tires, so its my first race comming up and i dont know what to expect from a race tire, will it last the whole saturday practise and the 4 races on sunday, i know i wont be pushing it to the max like someone who knows what there doing, but i'm not to shabby, i just dont want to get the the last race on sunday and turn it in and the front end gives or the rear says see ya later comming out of a turn, will i notice the tires getting less and less grip or will i just all of a sudden be eating tarmac. any help will be better that what i know now so thanks in advance, oh and one more thing what would be the best tire pressures for me

You should be fine. I know that at our track out here I can get 4 races and 2 track days out of a set of tires. If you ahve the new Power race tires you will run around 32 in the front and 22 in the rear. I know that sounds rediculously low in the back but that is what michelin recomends. And it works. Any other questions feel free to pm me
