That pickup means that the tires are working.

I'm like Bill, I don't remove anything...well except the big chunks.  With
slicks it's almost a wasted effort to remove anything because by the time
you drive through the paddock back to the pre-grid all the junk is back on

   I am having a serious problem with track pick-up. When I come in from a
session I have a great deal of rubber bits sort of welded to the tire tread.
It is extremely difficult to remove, especially if I let the tires cool off.
No, it is not reverted rubber from the tires themselves. Could this be a
tire-pressure or camber related problem? I am running Kuhmo 205-50 x15s with
30psi in the front and 28psi in the back. I had the same problem with my
Yokahame A-008s, so I don't think it's the tires.
