This grassroots sport is what underpins Avon’s “arrive and drive” ethos – transferring its expertise and development from the production of race tyres to passenger car products that are track-ready.
Avon Tyres will showcase its three main product lines – passenger car, motorcycle and motorsport tyres – at this month’s The Tire Cologne.
