The Subaru World Rally Team have announced that it will use BFGoodrich tyres for its 2007 World Rally Championship campaign.

The team will first use the BFGoodrich tyres on a seven-day development test in Spain and France after the last round of the championship in Wales.

Subaru have used Pirelli tyres since 1994, and their decsion to change to BF Goodrich brings them in line with all the other factory WRC teams.

Subaru World Rally Team managing director Richard Taylor said:

“Of course, we’re very much looking forward to working with BFGoodrich. It will certainly be interesting to go head-to-head with our competitors on the same rubber as, up to now, we have been unable to accurately benchmark our performance. At the same time, this announcement brings to an end a very successful partnership with Pirelli and I’d like to express my gratitude to them for all of their efforts since 1994. All of our 46 WRC wins with the Impreza have been with Pirelli tyres and the company has been instrumental in helping us to six World Championship titles.”
