Pirelli present new qualifying tire at Monza

Pirelli presentationPirelli will debut a new qualifying tyre solution at the first Italian round of the Superbike World Championship constructed and designed to improve both the performances and excitement of the Superpole. The 200mm qualifying tyre is unique to Monza being equal in measurement, profile and structure to Pirelli’s race tyre solutions for this circuit, whose compound gives riders the confidence to make the fastest lap. As a way of offering spectators and presenters a way of identifying what is happening during Superpole, non-permanent white "long P" markings and yellow lines have been imprinted on the tyre’s surface.

Pirelli’s Racing Activities Giorgio Barbier commented, "We continue to put forth significant efforts in developing additional tyre options available to every rider of the Superbike and Supersport grid, and we are satisfied with all the results, including this new qualifying tyre which guarantees more excitement and visibility into the strategies of each team during Superpole for all spectators, both live and on television."
