Pirelli Track Day Program - Supercorsa TD

This week, Jason Farrell recently added to the resume of the Pirelli Diablo Superbike SC2 front and SC1 rear slick tires. Mounted on his Farrell Performance Kawasaki Ninja ZX-10R, Farrell set a new lap record on the Competition Course layout at Brainerd International Raceway. His 1:34.870 time came during the Unlimited GP race as part of a Central Roadracing Association series round.

“It feels good to be back racing my ZX-10R and shooting for track records again,” Farrell said. “I couldn’t have broken the track record without my Pirellis. These new 125/70 front and 200/65 rear sizes work incredibly well.”

“Taking Pirelli’s motto ‘We sell what we race, we race what we sell’, Jason proves his trust in the tires that he sells,” said Pirelli Road Racing Manager Oscar Solis. “Setting a new absolute motorcycle track record confirms that Pirelli is committed to providing consumers with the very best and does a great job of showing just how good the new, larger Diablo Superbike sizing is.”

Whether it be our racing compounds, wet and rain options, or track-day specific compounds, we have something that meets the needs of everyday sportbike enthusiasts. I’m extremely confident that our customers will be impressed with the tires at the end of the day and be happy to be able to purchase them at a discount.”
