Pirelli Supports Ferrari Tour
Pirelli is to fit its UHP tyres to two Ferrari 612 Scaglietti’s which will tour China starting from Shanghai on 29 August.
The manufacturer has agreed to support Ferrari due to the ever-increasing importance of the Chinese market to the company. A joint venture agreement was recently signed for the production of tyres in the province of Shandong, one of the areas of the tour.
The Ferrari’s will be fitted with Pirelli P Zero Rosso and Winter Sottozero ultra-high performance tyres over the whole 15,000 mile route. The two cars will be driven by Chinese and international journalists.
This initiative is the latest in a long line of partnerships between Pirelli and Ferrari. Pirelli tyres are homologated for all Ferrari Grand Touring cars currently in production. In addition, Pirelli is the tyre supplier for the Ferrari Italian and international Grand Touring car championships.
