Goodyear has revealed that it will supply tires to teams in the top class of the 2020 European Le Mans Series. The tire company will offer the same specification tire that it currently offers to the World Endurance Championship.
“Goodyear is an industry leader in developing ultra-high-performance tires for sports cars,” says Ben Crawley, director, Goodyear Racing. “Our WEC comeback applies our knowledge and technology in one of the most demanding championships in racing. To extend this development to ELMS means we get to work with a wider range of cars, teams and drivers.”
ELMS has announced that all the entrants in the 2020 LMGTE class, for production-based supercars, will run on Goodyear Eagle F1 SuperSport racing tires.
“The Eagle F1 SuperSport RS has been homologated for the Porsche 911 GT2 RS and GT3 RS, and sizes are also being developed to fit models from other premium sports car manufacturers,” said Crawley. “In ELMS we will supply a tire range that offers the performance, parity, consistency and durability needed for a diverse range of cars.”
