DMACK Launches New British Built WRC & WRC 2 Tyres

DMACK Launches New British Built WRC & WRC 2 Tyres

After an intensive development programme, FIA World Rally Championship tyre supplier DMACK has launched a new range of gravel tyres, which have been designed and made in the UK and developed specifically for competitors in WRC 2 and those driving R5 class cars.

In addition, the company has created a bonus scheme rewarding WRC 2 drivers with discounted prices based on the number of events contested and their results in the WRC 2 category. A driver who wins a WRC 2 round using DMACK will receive his tyres for free on that event.

The firm has also developed new specification soft and hard gravel tyres for competitors in WRC cars with all new products available in time for Rally Portugal in May.

This now means competitors can choose from a complete range of upgraded Tarmac and gravel tyres for WRC 2 with the DMT-RC2 asphalt tyre, which clinched the most amount of fastest stage times on last weekend’s Circuit of Ireland rally, also available.

The new gravel tyres come after three months of development testing and evaluation in Spain and UK, headed by motorsport technical director Fiorenzo Brivio and his team of technicians in England. They feature an improved construction and upgraded compounds offering enhanced performance across all surfaces and conditions.

All DMACK tyres for priority drivers in the world rally championship are now being manufactured in the UK.

We will play our gravel joker before Rally Portugal and have the complete new range available for this event.”
