AVON RENEWS KENT FF TYRE CONTRACT
The BRSCC has announced that it has agreed a three year deal with Avon Tyres for the Cooper Tire owned company to continue to supply the Club’s Kent engined Formula Ford Championships.
The contract encompasses the 2011, 2012 and 2013 seasons and covers the Club’s two regional Formula Ford 1600 series – the Northern and Southern Championships, as well as the Kent engined section of the annual Formula Ford Festival.
Announcing the deal BRSCC Chairman Bernard Cottrell said, “I’m delighted that Avon is onboard again and that next season our competitors will benefit from the cost of a set of tyres being pegged at under £400. The BRSCC has always enjoyed an excellent working relationship with Avon and we look forward to building on that in the future.”
Paul Coates, General Manager, Avon Tyres Motorsport added “Naturally, we’re delighted to have secured the agreement to supply FF1600 for another three years. We’re very keen to work with the BRSCC on further initiatives to secure the long-term future of Formula Ford. It has long been acknowledged as the very best category in which aspiring racing drivers should cut their teeth. As such, we believe it is one of the most important championships in UK club motorsport and always produces fantastically close racing.”
