Firestone Racing are bringing more than 1,600 tires to Barber Motorsports Park for this weekend’s Honda Indy Grand Prix of Alabama.
Each entrant will receive
- Seven sets of the Primary black tire.
- Four sets of the Alternate red tire.
- Five sets of the Rain grey tire.
The construction and compound for the 2019 tire is the same as the one brought to Barber Motorsports Park in 2018. Track action gets underway for the Honda Indy Grand Prix of Alabama on Friday morning.
Speaking about the Honda Indy Grand Prix of Alabama, Chief Engineer with Firestone Racing Cara Adams said:
Last year the alternate compounds used at the Honda Indy Grand Prix of Alabama were softer with more grip, which allowed for more primary-alternate gap at the pristine road course. Based on the excellent feedback received from teams and drivers following last year’s race, Firestone will bring the same race proven tires used in 2018 for the NTT IndyCar series return to Barber.
