Contact Tyres at the Worlds

03 August 2010

Just a short report from the 1/10th Nitro World Championship in Texas USA where our new brand of tyres 'Contact' were present under the body's of some of the Worlds best drivers.

A late addition to the team, 3 times World Electric Touring Car Champion Marc Rheinard drove with Contact Tyres through the semi final into the main.  Driving a very consistent and tidy race Marc came through to finish in a fantastic 3rd place after leading for some periods.  What makes Marc's performance even more outstanding was that it was only his 3rd Nitro TC meeting!!

Another Contact driver unlucky not to make the main final was Paul Lemieux.  Paul had great pace all weekend but unfortunately pit stop problems denied him a place in the main with him finishing 11th overall.

So a 3rd and 11th place for our exciting new brand was an excellent performance, congratulations to the drivers involved.

Tyres are coming through into stock all the time and the full range should be available shortly.
