Pirelli has extended its contract with Dorna and will continue to be the official single-tyre supplier to all the classes in the WSBK Championship for 2019 and 2020 seasons.
Pirelli, the Italian tyre manufacturer, has been in this industry for decades. It is famous for its products all over the world. Many big car and bike manufacturers prefer Pirelli as the one keeping their products in contact with the road. Similarly, world’s top professional racers and rally-ists chose Pirelli. It has been the first brand to enter the segment of racing and supersport tyres and successfully created its mark in these fields with its outstanding product development and flourishing sales.
Giorgio Barbier, Racing Activities Director of Pirelli’s Business Unit for Motorcycle, said, “We are historically a strong sporty DNA brand. This year we celebrated 110 years of Motorsports activity, and this renewal is a strong sign of our continued business strategy that has enabled our company to establish itself as a benchmark in racing.”
He further added, “Now we are thinking about the future, we will work together with Dorna on the growth of the Championship and especially with the new World Supersport 300 class because today’s young riders will be the future protagonists of tomorrow’s World Superbike Championship. The bond between Pirelli and the MOTUL FIM Superbike World Championship has always been solid, over the years we have strongly contributed to the growth of this Championship and, at the same time, thanks to our participation we have succeeded in developing successful products which we have made available to all motorcyclists.”
