Official statement on behalf of the BMW Compact Cup: Marangoni Tyres
Mon 30 Sep 2013
On 06/09/2013 Marangoni Tyres announced it would be suspending tyre production at its car & van tyre factory in Italy (This is where our race tyres are made).
After hearing of the Marangoni factory situation, BMW Race Days along with our main sponsors contacted Mr Tyre Motorsport (our current tyre supplier) to enquire about securing any remaining stocks of the race tyres, with the hope/motivation to provide continuity in supply and to eliminate the need for you to replace all your tyres.
We are now able to announce that we were successful in creating a partnership with Mr Tyre Motorsport, and this means that there will be no disruption to the 2014 Championship. We have secured sufficient stock for 2014 for both the English & Scottish Championships (including our anticipated growth), but as things stand we will have no choice but to phase out the Marangoni tyre at the end of the 2014 season when we will look at alternative options for 2015.
On behalf of BMW Race Days, 750MC, Championship sponsors and drivers, we hope that Marangoni can find a solution to their situation, and we offer thanks to Marangoni for the tremendous support and unquestionable efforts in helping to make the BMW Compact Cup the success it is today.
