Racing trucks will continue to race on excellent tires
All FIA European Truck Racing Championship entrants to exclusively race on Goodyear Truck Racing Tires for the next three years.
With the start of the 2019 season, Goodyear is honoured to extend its partnership with the Federation Internationale de l’Automobile (FIA) as exclusive tire provider to the FIA European Truck Racing Championship for sfurther three years. Goodyear is particularly proud of the company’s participation in the series as tires represent an extremely important link in ensuring safety and achieving goals in the most demanding conditions.
Goodyear’s truck racing tires will equip all the vehicles in European truck racing. The 315/70R22.5 tires have been specially developed to deliver maximum performance in all conditions to 5.5-tonne trucks that can reach speeds of up to 160 km/h. The main advantages of the tires are very high levels of grip in both dry and wet conditions as well as RFID (Radio Frequency Identity), which gives each tyre a unique identity allowing the FIA to monitor each tire to ensure all teams to meet the regulations.
The company’s participation in the series proves Goodyear’s development progress and the quality of its regular production tires as the latter use similar casings to those used in racing.
