Pirelli Motorsport were happy with how their range of tyres performed over the course of Rally Finland this weekend which resulted in Toyota Gazoo Racing’s Elfyn Evans scoring a commanding victory.
The Welshman came home ahead of the Hyundai duo of Ott Tanak and Craig Breen.
Speaking following the event, Director Of Pirelli’s Rally Programme Terenzio Testoni, said:
“The Scorpion KX Soft has proved to be a versatile tyre with a wide working range, reliable in both hot and cold conditions, as well as in fast and slow conditions, and on abrasive surfaces together with smoother roads. On top of that, the construction was strong enough to cope with all the jumps that are a hallmark of Rally Finland. This tyre was developed for possible use in Great Britain as well, which is likely to showcase cool conditions not dissimilar to those seen in Finland this weekend. Congratulations to Elfyn Evans, who was fast from start to finish and quickly worked out how to get the best possible grip from his tyres. For the next rally in Spain, the new P Zero RA HA will make its debut: our new hard compound for asphalt, which is even stronger than its predecessor.
