This picture of a fling rally is just awesome? it also re-enforces my point about the tyre companies involvement in motorsport . Especially, from the research and development angle.
The advertising factor also comes into to it. Tghus, with the famous yellow and red Pirelli logo. As expected, clearly to be seen on the excellent photo shot from Pirelli motorsport .
Pirelli motorsport are one of the world’s leading tyre manufacturers. Hence, in the field of supplying their tyres to the car racing events.
The giant Italian tyre. For this reason, the company manufacture tyres for race events as diverse as “vintage car rallying “to their involvement in “F1” racing.
Like most tyre companies. Pirelli motorsport helps them to try out new products and materials. Of course, that are used in making a tyre. We have all heard about the controversy involving the different tyre compounds in the past two years with F1 cars. This type of thing is just learning curbs and Pirelli have now sorted their problems out.
Pirelli motorsport began involvement in rallying way back in 1973. From then to 2010 Pirelli motorsport tyres have recorded no fewer than 25 rally championship wins. Pirelli motorsport became the official tyre suppliers to the WRC (World Rally Championships) between 2008 and 2010. This gave Pirelli maximum publicity and exposure all around the world.
They then became tyre suppliers to the WRC academy in 2011 and 2012, giving the younger drivers the experience driving on their 8 different types of rally tyres. These range from the “RX” which is a tyre for dry or damp asphalt, to the “Scorpion” which is constructed in the form of the Asymmetric and directional pattern design based on Pirelli’s many years of experience in rallies on gravel roads.
