Brivio’s DMACK Move To Attract Top WRC Teams

DMACK is set to benefit from the technical expertise of one of the world’s leading motorsport tyre engineers as Fiorenzo Brivio joins the UK company after a long spell at Pirelli.

The Italian tyre expert made the switch to DMACK after 30 years in Pirelli’s motorsport department where he covered a variety of key technical, industrial and sporting positions across rally and circuit racing.

He joins DMACK, an authorised tyre supplier to the FIA World Rally Championship (WRC), in the new position of motorsport technical director and will lead the development of the firm’s motorsport products and strengthen the performance of its gravel and asphalt rally tyres.

With WRC tyre regulations moving forward, Brivio will ensure DMACK products for world and regional rallying are evolved to provide the best possible performance. The ultimate aim for DMACK, which won the 2014 WRC 2 Teams title, is to partner with a top WRC squad and compete for the main WRC title.

Brivio was responsible for inventing and developing some of the first successful tread patterns for gravel and snow rallies – an approach that was then adopted by all major manufacturers.

His sealed-surface experience will also allow DMACK to develop new products for circuit racing and track use – opening up additional non-rally markets and race series opportunities.

Dick Cormack, DMACK managing director, said: “DMACK has achieved an enormous amount in the last five years but now it’s time for us to raise the bar another level. Fiorenzo’s appointment will ensure we have the technical expertise within DMACK and I believe his knowledge of motorsport compounds and constructions is both unrivalled and invaluable. Our goal is to partner with a top WRC manufacturer and we’re now one step closer to achieving that.”

Fiorenzo Brivio, DMACK motorsport technical director, said: “I was searching for a new challenge after more than 30 years in the motorsport industry and DMACK provided me with the perfect opportunity. The company has made great steps over the last few years and I’m hoping my passion, experience and technical knowledge will allow us to develop new tyres and attract top level teams within the WRC.”
