Bridgestone Americas Inc. has announced it supported three podium finishes at the 2023 National Auto Sport Association (NASA) 25 Hours of Thunderhill.  

Team Honda Research West (THRW), a team made up of Honda associates who race and crew in their spare time, raced on Bridgestone Potenza RE-71RS tires during the race on Nov. 10 – 12.  

Bridgestone teamed up with THRW and equipped all three of its race cars with the Potenza RE-71RS tires earning a first and second place finish in the E0 class and a second place finish in the E1 class.  

“As someone who tests tires commercially, I am well-versed in what works in motorsports and the type of product that will help us get the most out of our performance in an environment like Thunderhill,” says Andy Hollis, crew chief for THRW.  

“We chose the Bridgestone Potenza RE-71RS tires due to its consistent and long-lasting performance, which ultimately provided our 25 Hours of Thunderhill teams the winning edge.” 

The Bridgestone Potenza RE-71RS tire is available in 38 sizes from 15 to 20-inch rim diameters in the United States and Canadian markets. Popular fitments include Mazda Miata, Subaru BRZ, Ford Mustang, Porshe Cayman and BMW 3-Series.
