Dunlop extend tyre deal until 2024

Dunlop has extended its tyre supply deal with the Supercars Championship and will deliver tyres until the end of the 2024 season.

The renewed contract will make it 23 straight seasons of cooperation.

“Dunlop is proudly synonymous with industry-leading innovative tyre designs for motorsports and has been integral to Australian high-performance racing since the 1950s,” said Chris Radin, managing director of Goodyear & Dunlop Australia.

“This exciting new agreement with Supercars allows us to further increase our commitment to technological excellence, driver development and fan excitement over the next five years.

“We highly value our long-term relationship with Supercars, and we look forward to showcasing Dunlop as the premier sports and performance tyre brand in the Australian market.”

New for next year will be that Dunlop will provide the teams with new tyres for all sessions, compared to this year when the teams run used tyres from the previous event for the practice sessions.

Just one set of used tyres will be used during each race weekend, carried over from the previous event, to be used as warm up tyres.
