Maxxis goes rallying with Victra R19 rally tyre
Maxxis has added rallying to its motorsport activities, with its Victra R19 tyre at the forefront. The tyre was chosen by former champions Darren Pinchin and Karen Jenkins to keep their Proton Satria on track at this year’s Wyedean Forest Rally in Gloucestershire.
The Victra R19 provides improved grip and braking characteristics with a tread pattern created to offer drivers the optimum rally driving experience. The composite shoulder belt has been specially designed to improve the R19’s resistance to punctures and other damage, and its asymmetric band design provides excellent debris removal and good water drainage.
Managing director Derek McMartin states: “It was fantastic to have had former champions Darren Pinchin and Karen Jenkins choosing the Victra R19 rally tyre for this year’s Wyedean Forest Rally. Being able to add another motorsport to our increasing portfolio is fantastic and we are honoured to know that teams are choosing to compete on Maxxis tyres because of the outstanding performance benefits. We look forward to continuing our support of both the sport and its competitors to ensure we continue to build our brand awareness further.”
