Pirelli will bring around 1500 tyres to Estonia, of which 400 will be for the top class of World Rally Cars.

Each of the WRC drivers can use up to 24 tyres during the rally, with a separate allocation of four tyres for shakedown. For the rally, each car has a total allocation of:

24 Scorpion KX Soft
8 Scorpion KX Hard

Speaking ahead of the event this weekend Terenzio Testoni, rally activity manager said:

“We can expect Rally Estonia to be one of the fastest events of the season. The stages generally have a soft and sandy surface, so the traction available from the tyres can be very important for acceleration out of the corners: This is why the soft compound is the main choice for this event. There are also many crests and jumps, although these are mostly not as big as those we see in Finland. Temperatures are quite high in Estonia at the moment, so the teams will need to consider how to manage their smaller allocation of the alternative hard compound, as limited by the regulations.”
