Avon Tyres becomes official tyre supplier to 6th Gear Experience
Avon Tyres is the official tyre supplier for 6th Gear Experience, the UK’s largest provider of Supercar Driving Experience Days. The brand will supply its ultra-high performance ZZ5 for the majority of 6th Gear Experience vehicles, a tyre specifically designed for driving enthusiasts and high-end sports cars. The Avon ZZ5 has an A-grade for wet grip, the highest rating awarded under EU regulations, and offers exceptional handling, braking performance, and rolling resistance.
6th Gear offers the chance to drive prestige vehicles such as the Lamborghini Gallardo, Aston Martin Vantage, Audi R8 and Ferrari 360 Modena at six venues across the north, Midlands and south of the country. Locations include famous UK circuits and test tracks such as Rockingham Motor Speedway, Castle Combe, Longcross and Bruntingthorpe Proving Ground.
Michael Kramer, Avon Tyres marketing director, said, “Avon Tyres is proud to have been selected as the Official Tyre Supplier to 6th Gear Experience. Driving experiences can be very demanding on the tyres but we know that our products are tested extensively on the roads and racetracks of Europe, so they are perfectly suited for the high performance cars at 6th Gear Experience.”
Andy Cummings, 6th Gear Experience managing director, commented, “6th Gear Experience is delighted to announce a relationship with Avon Tyres, with our supercar fleet primarily on Avon ZZ5s from 2018 onwards. The increased grip, performance and durability will be immediately noticed and enjoyed by our 30,000 customers per year. It’s great to be working with an iconic British brand such as Avon Tyres.”
