Having the correct tyres for your vehicle is something I’m quite familiar with as the proud owner of a garage in Halifax. Proper tyres are crucial for long-distance races like the Daytona 24 Hours.
So, the big question is: does Continental still provide their excellent tyre products to the Daytona 24 Hour races? My friends, the answer is a resounding yes!
Throughout the years

In Halifax, we care about Continental’s performance in the Daytona 24 Hour Race, but you might be asking why. It all comes down to how committed they are to performance and innovation. Tyre innovations made by Continental for use on racetracks typically find their way into their consumer tyres. This means that the tyre knowledge that helps race cars win at Daytona International Speedway is available to you when you choose Continental tyres for your Halifax-area vehicle.
The key is not just speed and accuracy
but also stamina. Continental tyres have repeatedly shown their mettle in the Daytona 24 Hour Race, which is a genuine test of a tire’s capacity to endure the stresses of continuous racing. Its consumer tyres are designed to withstand the varied road conditions in Halifax, thanks to its endurance attitude.

Continental has also extended their involvement with the NASCAR Group company as well as the IMSA.
To continue with the sports car theme,
Continental Tyre has developed the first legal track-day tyre. This was achieved through tyre expertise and much research and development. The new tyre is known as the Conti Force Contact. Of course, we will include the now-famous “Black Chilli Compound”! This helps the tyres bond to the road surface better. The new compound, combined with a newly developed macroblock shoulder design, gives the new tyre superb handling when cornering at speed.
The Continental tyre also benefits from having bi-directional draining grooves on the inside of the tread, which provides excellent wet weather performance when on the track, allowing for safer driving conditions for the driver in wet weather. The tyres are available in wheel rim sizes ranging from 18 to 20 inches.
