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.
