Dunlop Road Race Posts Contingency Program for 2013

Buffalo, NY: Dunlop is pleased to announce that in 2013 the company will once again support club racers throughout the United States and Canada by posting contingency payouts. This program will apply throughout a wide variety of racing classes conducted by 20 popular sanctioning organizations. As the official tire of the Geico AMA Pro Road Racing series, Australian FX Series and more, Dunlop in 2013 will make available to club racers an expanded selection of products, including DOT tires and slicks made in the U.S. and U.K., along with professional services at the track. Direct technical assistance from the Dunlop U.S. R&D team will be available at select club races where work with the ongoing road race tire development program will take place.

Racers choosing Dunlop tires in the following series will be eligible for this contingency program: AFM, ASMA, ASRA PRO Series, ASRA Team Challenge, Chuckwalla, Moto Series, CCS, CMRA Endurance, CMRA Sprint, CRA, MWGP, OMMRA, WMMRA, SMRI, USBA, USGPRU and WERA in the United States, plus SOAR, RACE and the 250 CUP in Canada.

Dunlop Senior Road Race Manager Sabastian Mincone said, “Club racing has always been an important program for Dunlop because it gives us additional information for tire development beyond what we gather at AMA Pro Road Racing events. Over the years, we have been able to develop race-winning products that work remarkably well at racetracks all around the United States while working with some of most talented riders in America. All of us at Dunlop are pleased to offer contingency awards plus our technical support for the many club racers around the country to help grow racing at the grass-roots level. In 2013 we will continue to expand our development of U.S.-made race products in order to deliver top performance at an affordable price. Dunlop will also continue to offer our full range of UK-made road race tires for 2013.”
