Sept. 29, 2006

Cooper Tire & Rubber Co. is starting its second season as the official tire supplier to the A1 Grand Prix.

Cooper supplies 16-inch tires for all 23 countries participating in the series.

"We were confident entering last year that our Cooper-A1 racing radials would meet and exceed driver and team expectations," says Julian Baldwin, vice president of European operations and managing director for Cooper.

"We fully expect to continue that high level of performance this year, while also gathering data that is crucial to technology developments for our consumer tires."
