Toyo commits to 7 Race series for 2 more seasons

Toyo Tires will partner the Toyo Tires 7 Race Series for a further two seasons. The Caterham-based Toyo Tires 7 Race Series also enjoys one of the most exclusive circuit access lists on the calendar; not only on the UK’s finest tracks such as Brands Hatch GP, Donington and Snetterton, but also across Europe on such iconic tracks as Imola, Spa, Ascari and Portimao.

All cars will use the Toyo Proxes R888R as control tyre, levelling the playing field, and ensuring that nobody has a competitive advantage.

Series co-ordinator Andy Adshead commented: “We’re obviously delighted to remain with Toyo as our technical partner and control supplier for the next two seasons. Not only has it proved to be one of the most able and versatile tyres that we’ve competed on, but the technical assistance and help we’ve received from their technicians has been invaluable. All of our race cars work really well on this rubber – and it’s great to see a manufacturer like Toyo continue to re-invest in the sport.”

The first round starts at Spa Francorchamps between 18 and 20 April 2019.
