New Compound For Tyres In Brisbane: Key At Tasmania Super Sprint

The world of the motorsports has been emerging as one of the most popular sporting events in the world right now. And let’s face the fact, almost every guy in this planet loves speed, crazy acceleration, out-of-this-world drifting skills and yes, the grid girls during racing events especially in Formula 1. But let’s not forget about one thing, as fun as it can be especially for spectators, driving in a racing car that is capable of reaching 200 km/h in a snap is dangerous and in fact, can cause loss of lives and serious damage to properties. If you are racing driver and racing has been the only career you ever had in your entire life, you are always one step closer to disaster. That’s when you are let’s say competing in the Supercars series, everything that can be found in your car has to be professionally managed and it includes the set of tyres in Brisbane which serves as the running shoes of the car itself.


Last April of 2017, two shipping containers left from Melbourne in Down Under Australia, carrying a grand total of 1,400 tyres in Brisbane which were going to be used during the recently held Tasmania Super Sprint. And according to experts and spectators alike the introduction of a new tyre compound: the Sport Maxx Super Soft compound which is devised by tyre supplier, Dunlop, would change the overall competitiveness in both Supercars categories as the new tyre compound that would be used by drivers during the qualifying sessions and the races themselves- will enable drivers themselves to threaten every qualifying lap times and record lap times. Each team competing in the Supercars series has already been given 24 pieces of the said new tyre compound but will have to return four of them at the conclusion of each Friday practice session.  The new tyre compound would play a crucial during the Tasmania Super Sprint because unlike any other mainland racing events, the Tasmania event offers more logistical challenges for both drivers and their respective cars compared to the track at Albert Park in Melbourne where drives had the luxury of driving around a smooth-flowing racetrack.
