After four years of partnership with Bridgestone, Belgian motorcycle brand Saroléa has now selected Dunlop as a technical partner for its Saroléa SP7 electric racing motorcycle. Dunlop comments that the change of technical partner accompanies yesterday’s announcement of the next goal for Saroléa, which is to be recognised as a candidate for future Le Mans 24h and FIM Endurance World Championship (EWC) competition and thus directly compete with the most powerful petrol-powered EWC machines. The switch, adds Dunlop, was a move Saroléa made “to help achieve this goal.”
Bridgestone is continuing its partnership with the all-electric Belgian motorcycle manufacturer Saroléa. For the fourth year in a row, the tyre maker will support Saroléa’s participation in the TT Zero races at the Isle of Man on 7 June. Bridgestone’s partnership with Saroléa dates back to 2014 and involves the provision of full technical support and tyre expertise for Saroléa’s track and road ambitions.
Bridgestone’s partnership with electric motorcycle manufacturer Saroléa continues with its third visit to the TT Zero at the Isle of Man on 8 June. Riding on two promising performances (fourth in 2014 and fifth in 2015), the all-electric Belgian motorcycle manufacturer is reaching out for the podium this year with two world class riders. Bradford’s Dean Harrison and Northern Ireland’s Lee Johnston will pilot an SP7 each, 2 bikes in 2 different colours.
The Saroléa Manx 7 electric superbike has been homologated in the Isle of Man for public road use, fitted with Bridgestone Battlax RS 10 tyres. The company plans to develop and manufacture high performance street-legal electric motorcycles in limited editions on the Isle of Man. The Manx 7 itself is derived from the Saroléa SP7, which competed in the Isle of Man TT Zero races in 2014 and 2015. Racing on Bridgestone Battlax VO2 slicks, the Saroléa narrowly missed a podium finish this year after completing the 60km TT course at an average speed of more than 170km/h.
Around one year ago, Bridgestone entered into a technical partnership with Belgian motorcycle brand Saroléa, designer of the Saroléa SP7 electric superbike. The tyre maker delivered technical support and tyre expertise for the manufacturer’s track testing and racing ambitions, which last year included the TT Zero Challenge at the Isle of Man TT series. Saroléa finished fourth at its debut appearance, and in 2015 will again look to Bridgestone for further expertise.
Bridgestone has formed a technical partnership with Belgian motorcycle brand Saroléa, designer of the Saroléa SP7 electric superbike that was shown for the first time during the Speed Trophy at Belgium’s Mettet circuit on 26 April. The deal will see Bridgestone provide technical support and tyre expertise for Saroléa’s track testing and racing plans, which for 2014 include the TT Zero Challenge at the Isle of Man TT series and the FIM eRoadRacing world cup series.
