Dunlop Race Tyres on Nissan Altima

This is one of the best images I have ever seen?

The Jack Daniel’s Racing Nissan Altima driver. Rick Kelly’s Sunday race performance placed him 16th position. Exactly the same as the Saturday race. The race took place  from the Castrol Edge Townsville 400.

This was an improvement from his qualifying position of 18th place. In this one of Australia premier racing events. I was lucky enough to watch the race live here on UK TV.

I am not sure which tyre Kelly’s car was using. Thinking that it would have been Dunlop race tyres. All of the other Jack Daniels sponsored Nissan’s run on  Dunlop race tyres. So although i watched on TV. Then i  did forget which tyres were used.As a result, i am almost certain that they would have been the “racing circuit slicks” .Because of the dry hot conditions on the racing days.

Dunlop race tyres are used in many motorsport events across the world.

When approaching the chequered flag . Rick Kelly was just overtaken by fellow competitor Nick Percat. Having to settle for 16th position.

The V8 Supercars Championship. Hence, continues at Queensland Raceway from July 31st to August 2nd. Kelly is in tenth position in the championships after competing in 17 races.

Dunlop  tyres Australia are the official tyre suppliers to the V8 Supercars  race series,and as we all know in the tyre industry are  one of the world’s leading makers of high performance and ultra high performance tyres. It has been involved in motorsport and has been at the forefront of motoring research development for 125 years.

Like their great rivals Michelin, Dunlop tyres have  an impressive track record of motorsport success. Dunlop are an icon of the road and over the years have been the choice of racing legends due to their tyre products high performance qualities.

Dunlop continues to design. Develop and produce tyres right up to the present moment. Supplying tyres that constantly question and push the limits of technology. Helping to create a faster and safer racing experience .Hence, for the teams that they support in the motorsport industry.

This is the reason  that in 2015 . This will be Dunlop racing tyres 14th consecutive year. Supplying the V8 Supercars in Australia and Dunlop racing series control tyres.

After winning its fourth control tyre contract in succession, its current contract will run from 2013-2017, and as in F1 racing the battle will commence for the right to supply tyres to this prestigious race series.

I cant wait to watch the next races in August.

The Dunlop tyres racing team turn up in their huge truck. The truck is equipped with a full stock of tyres that will be required for the specific race meeting. it also contains everything to set up a tyre fitting bay which when erected gives the  Dunlop tyres racing team, full access to tyre fitting machines and wheel balancing facilities.

The tyre are constantly changed and tested during a race. The tyre temperatures are recorded, because this is critical to grip and tyre performance.

Dunlop tyres racing team also have small tents that fit tyres in with a heater to pre-heat them up to the correct temperature. The heat aspect of the tyres is very critical for the overall tyre performance, and pressure of course.

regular travelers to Europe, especially France will have no doubt seen these giant Yellow trucks from the Dunlop tyres racing team, heading for different racing venues across Europe. The one in my image was taken by myself outside the Ibis hotel in Boulogne and heading for the weekends racing at the famous Le Mans racing circuit.
