British Drifter Says Marangoni Mythos Tyres are ‘Truly Awesome’
British Drift Championship driver, Chris Bradbury is now sponsored by Marangoni for 2008. Recently the driver lauded the Italian manufacturer’s Mythos line of high performance tyres. “The Mythos is an unbelievably good drift/grip tyre and in five years of drifting it’s the only tyre I have ever run on that gives consistent, high levels of linear grip at any temperature, without delamination, chunking or any other malfunction to the tyre. They will run evenly, right down to the core. Truly awesome.”
“We have been extremely pleased, not only with the performance of the tyres, but with the opportunity to show our brand to a new and enthusiastic audience. Brand recognition and consumer awareness can only be enhanced by our participation in this fast growing field of motorsport,” said Derek Carruthers, Marangoni (Car Tyre Division) Global Sales & Marketing Director.
Chris Bradbury made his Marangoni debut in the first Championship round at Teesside, where he finished 10th to post 8 Championship points. It was his first competitive outing on Mythos UHP tyres. His newly acquired Nissan PS13 Silvia car runs on 265/35R18s on the rear and 225/40R18s on the front.
