Looks like normal wear to me -- nothing to be concerned about.

Any number of contacts with parts of the course could have caused some missing rubber in that area. Unless there is something poking out of your fender or fender liner that would have worn the tire in that spot because of rubbing I'd say that damage is a non-issue.

Have a look at the fender and liner to make sure nothing is damaged, and keep on driving from there.

Going counter clock wise on the track ( per your description), the right front tire is going to have a lot of side slip wear on the outside like that ( where the other tires will not).

Looks like normal wear to me.... although you could add a little more air pressure.....

When hot AD08's should be 37-38 psi.

Start cold at 32 psi......

That's not bad or unusual for track wear. My PS2's looked much worse, lots of pieces flying off. The track surface itself is likely what "cut" your tires.

Read the attached & look at your last picture in first post The tip of the triangle is where the tread ends & sidewall begins. You need more pressure so you don't run on your sidewalls in corners.
