Avon Motorsport celebrates 30th anniversary

25th March 2013

Avon Motorsport, the motoracing arm of Cooper Tire and Rubber Company, is celebrating its 30th anniversary in 2013 as it aims to expand on its portfolio of racing champions.

Last year it supplied tyres to an astonishing 198 champions and this figure is only likely to grow as the company recently struck a deal to supply tyres for the Swedish GT Championship, joining its already existing affiliation with Avon Tyres British GT Championship.

It has become the premier tyre to use in rallycross, a sport which is a hybrid of gravel and asphalt racing. Avon is set to be the only supplier for the French Rallycross Championship over the next three years, as well as the FIA European Rallycross Championship for the 2013 season.

The company also supplies tyres for the Avon Tyres MSA British Hillclimb Championship and the FIA Historic Formula One Championship.

“Motorsport has changed considerably over the past 30 years and we’ve adapted to this. It is now a truly global industry and Avon’s involvement in various motorsport applications across the world reflects this,” said Paul Coates, manager of Avon Motorsport.

ATS Euromaster has the best Avon tyres in stock.
