Pirelli Partners TMG GT86 Cup

18 January 2013

Pirelli will officially equip the TMG GT86 Cup with tyres in 2013, the first season for the new championship featuring the GT86 CS-V3 race car.

This exclusive partnership enables TMG to offer tried-and-tested high-performance tyres to TMG GT86 Cup competitors for a special price. Furthermore, every team winning a race will get a free set of premium tyres from Pirelli.

TMG Senior Engineer Nico Ehlert said: “As we were learning from previous projects with Pirelli we can trust in their extensive experience and technical competence. Moreover, the Pirelli slick is an ideal tyre for long-distance races, considering performance and abrasion resistance. As tests already demonstrated, it has a positive influence on the balance of the GT86 CS-V3. We are really looking forward to the new cooperation and the option to offer the participant teams a perfect tyre for a very attractive price-performance ratio.”

GT86 Cup regulations stipulate tyres in the dimension 245/620R17 and compound DH (slicks) or WH (rain tyres).

Running within the popular Nürburgring-based VLN series, the TMG GT86 Cup is exclusively for GT86 CS-V3 entrants and offers attractive prize money as well as the thrill of competition on the legendary Nordschleife.
