Three days’ testing has been carried out in Sarno with some of the best drivers in the world for the forthcoming 2017-2019 Cik tyre homologations.
Over the three Cik Fia test days in Sarno, with the track in excellent conditions, nearly all the drivers who have raced in the event held at the end of October told us that out of all the tyres that had taken part in the selection, Dunlop were the best for what concerned performance and wear. “We’re talking about both the “prime” and the “option”. Don’t forget that these tests, where we saw brands like Bridgestone, Dunlop, LeCont, Maxxis, MG, Mojo, Speed and Vega were aimed for testing distance, that is, tyre wear that by "contract" must resist for 150 km for the "prime" compound and 250 km for the "option". We now have to wait for the official decision from the international commission to see which tyres will be used for the Cik championships for the nest three years: will they share the same opinion as that given by the drivers?
