Dunlop BTCC Hosts Motorsport Masterclass for Technicians
Cheshire’s Oulton Park was the latest venue for the Dunlop MSA British Touring Car Championship, hosting around 35,000 racing fans. Among those fans were more than 25 of the North West region’s top tyre experts, attending the Dunlop BTCC Masterclass; an exclusive course for technicians run by the same Senior Engineers that service the Dunlop tyres for BTCC stars such as Jason Plato and Matt Neal.
The Oulton Park Masterclass was attended by top dealers such as Winsford Tyres, Tyreforce, Selecta Tyre, Event Mobile, Hoole Tyres, Bob White Tyres, Saltney Tyres and the local HiQ Franchisees from Maghull, Northwich and Crewe, giving an insight into tyre design, maintenance and service, and focused on Dunlop’s race to road technology. Technicians from the Gordons chain in North East England also made the trip across the Pennines to the BTCC event for the Masterclass session.
“Dunlop’s extensive racing experience has led to innovative technologies for road tyres. The knowledge that we gain from servicing the most professional racing teams in national motorsport is valuable and relevant for the road car tyre market. Including training in our race weekends is a great way of building the link between our road tyre and racing tyre customers,” stated James Bailey of Dunlop Motorsport.
