Pirelli to supply 3,000 P Zero tyres to 100+ cars in Blancpain Endurance at Silverstone
Pirelli will bring around 3,000 P Zero tyres to Silverstoe for the second round of the Blancpain GT Series Endurance Cup and the Lamborghini Super Trofeo. The P Zero DHD will be fitted to the entire Blancpain GT grid, provisionally of 55 cars, while the DH slick will be supplied to the Lamborghini Super Trofeo. With rain a possibility, Pirelli will also bring its WH tyre for all categories.
Matteo Braga, circuit activity manager: “After a taste of British conditions experienced at the Blancpain Sprint round at Brands Hatch last weekend, we move to Silverstone this weekend: a longer and more demanding circuit for both driver and tyre. There teams will have to work hard during free practice to find the perfect balance between performance and consistency: a hallmark of endurance racing, which clearly wasn’t the primary focus at the Brands Hatch sprint meeting, where everyone was just pushing for outright pace.”
Qualifying for the Blancpain GT Series Endurance Cup takes place at 09.40 on Sunday 14 May followed by the three-hour race at 14.55. The Blancpain GT Sports Club qualifying race is on Saturday 13 May at 12.05 followed by the main race at 17.30. Qualifying for the Lamborghini Super Trofeo takes place on Saturday 13 May at 09.40 with race one at 15.00 and race two on Sunday at 11.35.
