Tyres maker Michelin has extended its exclusive deal to supply tyres to the Superleague Formula for the next two race seasons.
The French tyres manufacturer will supply its tyres to all the teams for testing and competition at least until the end of the 2010 season.
Robin Webb, Superleague Formula’s Competition Director, said: ‘We are pleased to be working with Michelin for the next two seasons.
‘Michelin has an outstanding reputation in motorsport and stands for quality and reliability. It has a vast amount of experience and will enhance the competitive nature of our series.’
Superleague Formula bills itself as ‘the fusion of the the two world’s most popular sports – capturing the passion of football with the thril and excitement of motor racing’.
The new concept kicked off in August 2008 with a field of V12-powered 750 horsepower single seater racecars bearing the colours of the world’s leading football teams.
the sport, still in its infancy, claims: ‘Traditional rivals on the pitch will do battle at some of the world’s greatest racetracks. This is more than just a race, Superleague Formula will provide a spectacular entertainment package for al the family at each event.’
