When it’s in your blood, it’s hard to stay away, and former Silverstone Competition Tyres (Malaysia) guru, Russell Palmer, has just started up a new tyre business – Motorsport Tyres Victoria, located in Bayswater.

“At Silverstone I gained exceptional experience with motorsport tyres. Apart from having a tyre manufacturing plant at my fingertips where you could be involved with the build of tyres, I also gained the experience of being a tyre supplier for competitors competing in the likes of Middle East Rally Championship, APRC, PWRC, and East African Safari Rally, with on-event tyre service for these,” Palmer says.

He also dealt with controlled tyre championships in Argentina, South America, Chile, UK, Greece, Australia and Malaysia, and provided tyres and on-event tyre service for Alister McRae (PWRC NZ) and many others.

As a competitor, Palmer has competed in the likes of the Safari Rally Kenya, Hong Kong – Beijing Rally, Castrol Rally South Africa and Rally Australia. He was a tyre designer and test driver for Suzuki with their Hayabusa powered single seaters, and has done tyre testing with Prodrive WRC Subaru.

Palmer’s new business has been offered the Hankook agency for both Victoria and Tasmania, and he is also a seller of DMACK and other brands.

Motorsport Tyres Victoria is located at unit 5 / 12 Power Road, Bayswater, Victoria. Contact Russell via e-mail:russell@motorsport-tyres-victoria.com, phone 0438 281053, or at www.motorsport-tyres-victoria.com
