F1, World RX stars to join Cooper Tire at The Tire Cologne
Cooper Tire Europe will host Formula One star and ultra-high performance ambassador, David Coulthard, and rallycross world champion Petter Solberg alongside its full range of products at The Tire Cologne exhibition (29 May-1 June).
Coulthard will be on stand C-070 in Hall 6 on Wednesday 30 May for a meet and greet with visitors to the show. In a multi-faceted ambassadorial role, Coulthard offers technical advice, insight and feedback to Cooper’s product development team, as well as representing the manufacturer at high-profile events. Coulthard plays a key role in Cooper’s road tyre development, with a hands-on approach to product testing.
On Thursday 31 May, three times FIA World Champion Petter Solberg will be at The Tire Cologne. Solberg currently competes in the Cooper-supported FIA World Rallycross Championship, having previously won the World RX drivers’ title twice on Cooper’s rallycross tyres.
Cooper Tire Europe’s stand will feature a Volkswagen Polo GTi World RX car of the type that Solberg races, and a customised Jeep Wrangler from Kahn Design. Cooper’s ultra-high performance car, SUV, off-road and classic tyre ranges will be on the stand for visitors to see.
