Pirelli will act as exclusive tyre supplier for the new Prototype Cup, the first national-level series in the UK for the increasingly popular LMP3 category of cars. Created by Bute Motorsport, organiser and promoter of the GT Cup – which Pirelli has supplied since 2009 – the opening round of the Prototype Cup takes place this weekend.
Paul Bailey, Andy Schulz and Aaron Scott were the big winners as the Pirelli-supplied GT Cup Championship staged three races at Brands Hatch last weekend. In race one on the Grand Prix circuit Bailey and Schulz (TFF Sport Aston Martin) scored a third win out of four this season in the lead GTO class ahead of Arwyn Williams/Aaron Scott (JMH Automotive Ferrari 458 GT3).
Alongside the announcement of its introduction of P Zero branded tyres into the BRDC Formula 4 Championship, Pirelli has launched its 2015 motorsport calendar at Autosport International. The tyre manufacturer is to compete in four key disciplines: single-seaters, saloon cars, sports and GT cars, and rallying.
