World Championship 1/8 in Miami has been a great success for Contact Tyres.
We won the World Title with Robert Pietsch and we have an amazing 3 drivers in the main final: Robert, Simon Kurzbuch and Paul Lemieux. It was a big shame for Paul that he could not challange higher but servo problems just before the final start put paid to that.
Also 6 drivers in semi finals was also using Contact Tyres the 3 in the main plus: Flavio Elias, Andrea Pirani, Michele Romagnoli. Our light rim was the one that worked better on the Homestede track, making the car really easy to drive and super consistant. The main tyre choice was 32 shore on the front and 35 on the rear. In the final Robert only had one tyre change in 60 minutes.
From Contact Tyres product manager I’d like say a big thanks to: Robert Pietsch and Felix it was really nice work together again, Paul Lemieux great drivers like everybody know and really nice guy. Simon Kurzbuch and his family all working hard to make good for Simon that get in his first Worlds final, well done!!. Flavio Elias and his dad they should be in the final taking in consideration how flavio has been fast all the week. Romagnoli brothers miss a bit of luck when they needed, but another driver that should be in the main.
The last big thanks to Kevin Hutchinson, Contact Tyres USA distributor always on the track helping our customers.
