DMACK unveils new gravel tyre
DMACK will introduce a brand new gravel tyre for the final three rounds of this year’s championship.
The new rubber, called DMG+22, will get its first outing at the forthcoming RallyRACC Catalunya - Rally de España (5 - 8 October) on Elfyn Evans’ Ford Fiesta WRC.
DMACK managing director Dick Cormack said the tyre had been developed during the WRC season and included significant changes.
A new tread pattern is said to provide greater performance in wet, muddy and slippery conditions, while a reinforced construction means it can be driven on for longer in the event of a deflation.
The new tyre features a softer compound than its predecessor, in both soft and hard compound options.
Fiore Brivio, DMACK technical director, said: “The aim is to improve the performance on loose gravel and, more than that, to gain experience in the most extreme conditions of cold and wet in GB and the hot temperatures expected in Spain and Australia."
