    I will go by that advice then!

    Why has it been said many times on this thread to inflate them more to give more even tyre wear?

    I have no idea. Having said that, you don't want them underinflated. Every track tyre should have an ideal operating range. It would be wise to try and stick within that. Too hard or too soft and you might find you're struggling for grip. The heat generated on circuit means you will find your pressures increase, you should then adjust accordingly. You generally find one or two tyres with more pressure and it's usually the LHS. This is because most circuits in the UK run clockwise. Pack a tyre gauge and a pump and check when you pit each time. Then reinflate as you leave for the drive home.
