Grippa returns to DMack range
- 6th December 2016, 9:14pm
DMack sprang a surprise when they released details of their 2017 WRC tyre list, with five all-new varieties all named Grippa tyres.
This resurrects the name of the company’s original competition tyres, which were used by club drivers in DMack’s pre-WRC days.
The range produced no technical surprises except for announcing that the WRC gravel tyres will now feature new improved high impact resistance and a run-flat construction.
Their 2017 WRC tyres are the design work of Fiorenzo Brivio, formerly of Pirelli who pioneered a lot of rallying run-flat experiments in the days before mousse inserts made run-flat technology redundant, till now….
DMack will be the only rival tyre supplier in the 2017 WRC series to Michelin.
DMack have also announced a financial reward scheme for WRC2 drivers using their new products.
Note the 15 inch Swedish winter tyre has a similar tread pattern to the 18 inch winter tyre.
