Default Yokahama A052 - tire pressure for the track

I will be driving with A052s on my E36 M3 in a couple of weeks at summit main - previously used R888Rs. Any thoughts on where to start with the air pressure? This is my first weekend with these and know I will need to adjust throughout the day to dial it in, but looking for an initial starting psi from anyone who may have some experience with these.

i was running 38 hot with those tires on my E30 M3.

great tires. they won't be as sticky as the R888's, but they are very predictable, communicate will before the limit, and steering response is quick.

make sure you have lots of camber up front...

Thank you. I will work toward that and see how it goes.
