Apparently there was an article in Autoexpress, but I can't find any links.

Apparently Autoexpress said:
a recent legislation has dictated a likely end to road legal track tyres as we know them in november 2012, tyres including toyo R888 and dunlop's direzza are two examples of tyres that will fail the new laws. they won't conform to radical criteria that all road tyres will need to meet, including decent wet weather performance." it carrys on to say that "the manafacturers will try to work round the new rules but regular tread patterns will be a necessity in order to dissipate standing water, although softer compounds would go some way to providing a compromise on grip
