WSBK to continue running Pirelli rubber

PAR Cycle CanadaPosted on

Pirelli has been supplying tires for the FIM World Superbike Championship since 2004. After winning out in a tender process that came to a close on August 25, the Italian company will continue providing rubber for all classes of WSBK until the end of the 2018 season. 

“We are glad to continue with Pirelli for a further three seasons,” said Javier Alonso, executive director of WSBK. “This renewal testifies our excellent relationship with the Italian company, a partnership for more than a decade that has always been strong with both the International Motorcycling Federation and the promoter and organizer of the series, and is clear evidence of Pirelli’s ongoing and constant ability to innovate and to offer products at the forefront or technology.”
