Avon Tyres Motorsport announced today it has signed a three year deal to supply Group C Racing with Avon slick and wet race tyres.
The Group C championship caters for cars from the golden era of sports car racing in the ‘80s and ‘90s and are some of the most up-to-date and sophisticated cars in historic motorsport.
Zoe Copas, Group C Racing’s Race Series Manager, commented, saying, “It is great for us to be involved with Avon. They have a long history with GPC and won several world championships in GPC2 in the 1980s. The enthusiasm of Avon for GPC is obvious in the effort they have put into producing a range of tyres and a trackside service ready for our 2015 race series.”
Paul Coates, Avon Tyres Motorsport General Manager, is equally as enthusiastic, saying, “We’re very pleased to be involved with Group C again. We have been developing suitable radial tyres for C1 cars to complement our existing range of cross-ply C2 tyres for a while, culminating in our success at the recent Daytona historic event where Avon-shod Porsche 962 and Audi R8 cars both won their respective races against established opposition.”
The first Group C race of 2015 takes place at Barcelona 17-18 April, followed by rounds at Spa, Monza, Silverstone, Zandvoort and Paul Ricard.
