Federal’s FZ-201 runs on Nürburgring Nordschleife circuit
Federal Tyres has carried out a testing of its new FZ-201 rubber in the world famous international circuit of Nurburgring Nordschleife in late May, which was evaluated by the professional driver Fredy Lienhard to try out the evolution of our medium compound semi-slick during the course of the two-day session in German. Lienhard’s knowledge and background in motorsports for many years has given us some valuable perspective about the characteristics of this racing product, as we completed our testing in Europe last month, and his response was generally more than favorable.
The Swiss veteran is the founder of “Rent 4 Ring” Team, which is one of the three authorized racecar rental companies that currently running business in Nürburgring. He has competed in renowned racing events, and has secured many accolades under his belt; all of which allowed him to give plenty of clear and precise feedback to Federal’s engineers.
