Dunlop proudly announces its support as the exclusive provider of tires for the new Motoyard Track Days racing series at California’s Willow Springs International Raceway.

Called the Willow Springs Wild West Shoot Out, the races will be held August 10-12, 2012 and will offer a total of six classes, ranging from 1000cc Unlimited race bikes down to the 250 Ninja shootout.

Sabastian Mincone (Dunlop Senior Road Race Manager) says: “This new series opens the door to a wide range of racing opportunities, and we are proud to sponsor this latest effort to grow racing at the grass-roots level in the USA.

“Willow Springs is well known as one of the most interesting race tracks in America, with a long history of great racing that has turned out many road race champions in our sport. We will have tires available at the track for all the classes, from the same spec tires we use at the Nationals to the Sportmax GP Unbeaten 02 for the Ninja 250.”

Tony Romo (Dunlop) says: “We are very proud to have been chosen as the one brand tire supplier for the inaugural Motoyard Wild West Shoot Out races.

“Willow Springs has always posed some unique challenges on tires – especially the rear tire through the fast turn eight. To prepare for these challenges we took the opportunity to test our full range of tires in the June heat with very positive results. This testing helped us develop tires to handle the extreme demands of the Motoyard Wild West Shoot Out.”
