Mid-Ohio enhances affiliation with Dunlop

Motorcycle Tires

The Mid-Ohio School and Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course, announced an enhanced affiliation with Dunlop Tire Corporation for its Performance Track Riding (PTR) program for two years through the end of 2011.

After being the presenting sponsor of the Honda Super Cycle Weekend for nearly two decades, Dunlop has expanded its partnership with TrueSports, Inc. to include The Mid-Ohio School. Dunlop motorcycle road race tires will now be available for sale through The Mid-Ohio School at its PTR events.

The Dunlop Q2s and D211 GPA GPs will be specially priced for PTR customers. These discounted prices are a special benefit from The Mid-Ohio School to offer one-stop, affordable shopping. Each participant will be allowed to purchase one set per PTR track date attended. In addition to sales, this will also include tire service at nearly all PTR dates.

"We see this as a natural extension of our long time relationship with TrueSports, Inc. and Mid Ohio Sports Car Course," said Amateur Roadrace and Schools Manager Les Washbon. "Dunlop has always tried to encourage motorcycle rider training and education. We feel The Mid-Ohio School’s PTR program will meet this goal."

"Dunlop has been a loyal supporter of Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course for years, and we’re excited it decided to expand that partnership to The Mid-Ohio School," said Steve Bidlack, The Mid-Ohio School Director. "Being able to supply our customers with outstanding tire sales and service at our PTR events as part of this agreement really stretches the program to a full service track day."

Dunlop is the largest supplier of original equipment and replacement motorcycle tires in the U.S. and the only manufacturer of motorcycle tires in North America. With North American operations headquartered in Buffalo, NY, Dunlop has been making and selling high-quality motorcycle tires in the U.S. since 1923. For more information, visit
