Leading tyre manufacturer, Dunlop, a name inextricably linked with the Isle of Man TT Races, will be the ‘Official Tyre Partner’ for the 2013 TT Races.
Dunlop has had unrivalled success at the Isle of Man with many of the greatest names in TT history recording victories using Dunlop tyres. All of the solo TT races in 2010 and 2009 were won by riders using Dunlop tyres including Ian Hutchinson’s record breaking five victories in 2010 and Steve Plater’s race winning performance in 2009 that included the new Senior TT Race record. John McGuinness is one of Dunlop’s long standing riders and his outstanding success has always been on Dunlop tyres.
The technologies found in the Dunlop race tyres used around the famous TT course are also found in Dunlop’s road going tyres. NTEC, JLB and MultiTread Compound are but a few of the technologies found in both race and road tyres. All of the Dunlop tyres used at the Isle of Man TT are designed and built at the Dunlop Motorsport Factory in Birmingham where they build 250,000 tyres a year for international motorsports such as Moto2 and Le Mans 24 Hour.
