After celebrating a hugely successful initial first year of partnership with the Racing School at the Autódromo Internacional do Algarve (AIA), Newton-Le-Willows based Davanti Tyres has announced that it will be continuing its association with the world-famous circuit for the long-term. Announced as the AIA Racing School’s Official Tyre Partner in 2016, the partnership has been extended with a lot of new partnership initiatives also added.
The AIA circuit, located in the picturesque Algarve, is extremely popular amongst motor-enthusiasts and welcomed more than 1 million visitors to its extensive grounds over the course of last year. This year’s guest attendance is expected to soar to unprecedented numbers, with the track hosting high-profile events such as the European Le Mans Series, the FIM World Superbike Championship, the Algarve Classic Festival and the 24 Hour Endurance Series.
The AIA Racing School is central to the planned expansion of the circuit’s reach and a new host of cars will be introduced in 2018, including Porsche’s 718 and full-race spec Honda’s Civic Type-R. Naturally, Davanti’s UHP DX640 will be fitted to all of the Racing School’s vehicles and will be ‘leading the way’ around the internationally renowned circuit. The DX640 tread pattern will be the exclusive choice of the Racing School and will provide the racing car fleet with the exceptional levels of performance needed on such a demanding circuit.
Additionally, this ongoing alliance will play an increasingly important role in Davanti’s continuous product development. Utilising the professional driver’s knowledge of tyre performance will help with enhancing product lines in the future. Sean Maddocks, Davanti UK & Ireland’s Sales Director stated, “Our partnership with the Autódromo is a trust testament to the quality of our tyres. Our DX640 UHP tyre is fitted to these high-powered vehicles and trusted by their professional drivers at speeds reaching 260km per hour”.
“Most motorists will never need to push their tyres like they do on the track, but it’s hugely reassuring to know that our tyres are tested and proven to deal with even the harshest of driving conditions.”, he added.
Evidently, the sentiment of trust is also reciprocated by the team at the AIA Racing School, who are confident that they are in the safest of hands with Davanti’s UHP models. The AIA Racing School’s Director, Miguel Praia, stated: “We are delighted to extend our partnership with Davanti. We have been working with the brand for one year now and feel that the brand’s quality and performance is more than capable of dealing with the demanding conditions at the track. We are also happy that this partnership will allow drivers to continue to get great performance out of the vehicles and provide a safe and confident drive for our drivers.”
Davanti continues to lead the way in Portugal and is further extending its network worldwide, the brand is currently present in 5 continents and provides an ample range in both summer and winter tyres across a wide variety of fitments.
