DMACK’s double-header of asphalt for both WRC and BRC teams

1 Mins read

DMACK’s World Rally Championship and British Rally Championship teams head to both asphalt rounds of their respective championships in Rallye Deutschland and the Ulster Rally.

For DMACK’s WRC Team, Estonia’s Ott Tänak and Raigo Mõlder will be competing on the asphalt of Rallye Deutschland in Trier, South West Germany with new DMACK tyres for the rally on the 18-21 August 2016.

The DMACK WRC crews will have not only access to the soft S5+ and hard H5+ dry compound tyres, but the new wet weather W5+ tyres which will also be in use in Germany next weekend.

DMACK’s WRC driver Tänak said “I like Tarmac and also enjoy the stages in Germany – you can have different weather on every stage in a loop so it’s always a compromise. We’ve shown how our pace can be on gravel this year and hopefully we will have the right conditions next week. Either way, I will be pushing as hard as possible for a solid result.”

Meanwhile, the 2016 MSA British Rally Championship will have its own asphalt challenge at the Ulster Rally as Welshman Elfyn Evans will be competing for the BRC DMACK Team at the event.

Evans currently leads the championship by over 39 points coming into the rally after showing great pace earlier on in the year on asphalt at the Circuit of Ireland Rally. Matt Edwards steps up to the main BRC category, driving a R5 class rally car after wrapping up the BRC2 title.

Evans added “We’ve had a good run over the last few events and will be aiming to carry that speed and performance again in Ulster. Our pace on the Circuit of Ireland was good so we need to continue that without any problems to strengthen our championship challenge.”
