Firestone Racing have brought more than 1,500 race tires to California for this weekend’s Acura Grand Prix of Long Beach.

Firestone have brought the same compound tire to Long Beach as the one used in the season opening Firestone Grand Prix of St Petersburg due to the circuit similarities.

Each driver will receive:

  • Seven sets of the Black walled PRIMARY tire.
  • Four sets of the Red walled ALTERNATE tire.
  • Five sets of the Grey walled rain tire.

Cara Adams, chief engineer with Bridgestone Americas Motorsports said:

“The Firestone Race Tire Engineering team will bring to Long Beach the same race-proven tire technology that was used earlier this season at the Firestone Grand Prix of St. Petersburg. Given the similarities between the two street courses and their mix of concrete and asphalt surfaces, Firestone Racing is supplying each entry with tires that can deliver a balance of durability, grip, and performance across a wide range of track surfaces and conditions.”
