Firestone Racing has brought more than 1,400 race tires to this weekend’s Acura Grand Prix of Long Beach with the compound and construction similar to the one used in the season-opening Firestone Grand Prix of St Petersburg presented by RP Funding.
Each driver will receive the following allocation:
- 6 sets of the Primary black tire
- 4 sets of the Alternate red tire
- 5 sets of the Rain gray tire
Speaking ahead of this weekend’s race, Director of Tire Engineering and Production with Bridgestone Americas Motorsports, Cara Adams commented saying:
As we return to the streets of Long Beach, our Firestone Race Tire Engineering team will bring the same race-proven tire technology used at the Firestone Gran Prix of St Petersburg. The two street courses have a lot of similarities with their mix of concrete and asphalt surfaces. Each entry will receive tires that can deliver a balance of durability, grip and performance across a wide range of track surfaces and conditions.
