Pirelli WRC Rally tyres are to share as one of the suppliers in next years World Rally Championship 2014. I can only say that i wish them luck, because after
there F1 disasters they will need all the luck they can get. Things have now picked up on the F1 scene with Pirelli Carlisle becoming more experienced and established.
Goodyear , Hankook and DMAC tyres will be the other three tyre companies that make up the four suppliers.
Out of the three tyre makers I have only had any experience in the Rallying world with Goodyear rally tyres. I will be interested to watch the series next year to see who comes out top, the only other rally tyre maker i know in recent times has been Yokohama who’s product has been very successful in recent rally’s, but not on a prestigious event such as the World Rally Championship on TV, I can’t wait ?
As a 2015 update Pirelli tyres have also retained the tyre supplier status to the F1 racing scene from 2016. Pirelli approached the F1 bosses with better offer than their rivals Michelin tyres.
Hi I would like to introduce myself. I have worked in the Garage and tyre and Battery business now for 40 years.

I now own a company here in the UK called Pellon Tyre and Auto-centre, and I am a keen blogger about anything to do with cars and their related products that will help my business.
