Pirelli named new tyre supplier for Macau Grand Prix

End of the road for Japanese Yokohama’s 33-year supply deal with local GP

Italian tyre manufacturer Pirelli will replace Japanese tyre supplier Yokohama in the provision of tyres for this edition of Macau Grand Prix in November, online motorsport magazine Autosport has reported. The new supply deal means that Yokohama’s 33-year Formula Three relationship with Macau Grand Prix has come to an end. The Japanese tyre supplier has provided tyres for the city’s international racing event since 1983 – when the race first adopted F3 regulations. According to an announcement by the World Motor Sport Council of the International Automobile Federation (FIA) on Wednesday, Pirelli will supply control rubber for this year’s races in the Special Administrative Region. This year’s Macau Grand Prix – the 63rd edition – is scheduled to take place over four days from November 17 to 20.
