Maxxis-sponsored riders across motorsport experienced success on the tyre manufacturers’ high performance tyres. Leading the way on two wheels for Maxxis was enduro athlete Brad Freeman. The British rider secured his first ever senior world title in the Maxxis FIM EnduroGP World Championship, riding to victory in the E1 class using the soft compound version of the MaxxEnduro and MaxxEnduPro tyres.
4×4 series organisers Ultra4 Europe exhibited at this year’s Goodwood Festival of Speed, allowing the Maxxis-sponsored championship to display its skills in one of the most famous time trials in motorsport. Team Gigglepin Racing driver Jerry Hunt explains: “Being invited to exhibit at this year’s Goodwood Festival of Speed was very special for us. For years we have dreamed of showing off our off-road vehicles at this prestigious event, so to be selected to display and drive them amongst some of the finest from around the world at this year’s Festival of Speed is something both I and the team are very proud of.”

Maxxis has swept the board in one of the USA’s premier professional rock racing championships, taking all three podium positions in the Eastern Division of the Maxxis sponsored XRRA series. Rusty Bray clinched victory, with Eric Childress in second place and Brian Shirley rounding out the top three. The results came after the three drivers put in strong performances at the last event of the regular season, which was held on August 18 in Badlands, Indiana.
Bray, who comes from a rock crawling background, maintained his overall victory was anything but a foregone conclusion. “We didn’t know how we’d do with the speed versus the rocks,” he said. “I ran Trepadors until this last event, when I needed a little more height. I ran the 40″ Creepy Crawlers this last time. They were good. This weekend was kind of our first time to deal with sand, but the Creepy Crawler worked well with the sand, dirt, rocks and the whole array of terrain.”
