Pirelli Wet tyres prove a point at Pembrey

At the British Sprint Championship event at Pembrey on Sunday 2nd June 2019 the qualifying runs were held in wet conditions giving the Pirelli equipped competitors their first chance to see how the wet tyres performed. The verdict was near unanimous as the following drivers testified.

Steve Miles (2.0 Van Diemen RF92 pictured): “They felt like slicks and the car didn’t move around. I wish I could have committed more to see how hard you can push them”. Even so, Steve qualified as the fastest runner, taking FTD and pushing the big V8s down the order!

Steve Broughton (2.0 SBD Dallara 2nd fastest qualifier): “Just like driving on slicks – confidence inspiring”.

Jeff Wiltshire (Sports Libre Zeus Challenger 6th fastest qualifier): “The tyres are ‘**** hot!’. It was streaming wet and the car felt like it was on slicks in the dry”.
