Dyson Racing Picks Dunlop

1 Mins read

New York state based American Le Mans Series (ALMS) team Dyson Racing has announced a partnership with British tyre maker Dunlop for the 2010 season.

“Dunlop shares the same commitment and passion for winning that we do,” said Chris Dyson, the team's Vice-President, Sporting Director as well as one of the drivers in 2009. “They have shown tremendous strides in tire development the past two years and their tires will be a key part of our championship effort in 2010. We look forward to having Dunlop involved with our team as a technical partner.”

The racing tyres will be manufactured at the Ford Dunlop factory in Birmingham, England.

“We look forward to our increasing involvement in North America racing,” says Gary Wassell, manage of Car Motorsport at the company. “And to assisting one of the leading sportscar racing teams in the world.”

The announcement comes after a successful 2009 season for the team, which saw them clinch two class wins in the P2 category, including at Petit Le Mans in September.

Dyson Racing will confirm further details of the 2010 program in the coming weeks ahead of the ALMS winter test at Sebring on February 22/23 and the opening race, the 12 Hours of Sebring on March 17-20.
