dunlop ups the ante in thundersport sponsorship

Dunlop has extended its support for the Thundersport500 race series, with the championship running a new Dunlop control tyre for the next two years.

The partnership began in 2016 with Dunlop supplying the Alpha13 and Alpha13SP tyres. For 2020 the series moves to a new control tyre, the Dunlop Sportsmart TT.

Clinton Howe, motorsport business development manager for Dunlop UK, said: “It’s great to be continuing our relationship with the ThundersportGB team and to have the opportunity to move the championship to a later specification tyre which we believe will bring real benefits to the racers.”

ThundersportGB director Syd Richard-Day said: “We are delighted that Dunlop has chosen to continue its generous support with an all-new control tyre for 2020/21.

“Dunlop has again stepped up the ante and introduced an even better tyre.”

The Sportsmart TT is a road-legal hypersport used in the Isle of Man TT and the World Endurance race series.
