Pirelli team up with the Red Bull Pro Nationals


Pirelli UK have announced a groundbreaking, three-year sponsorship and full
support partnership with popular and innovative MX series, the Red Bull Pro

Pirelli will have a major support programme for the series with a dedicated
tyre-supply and changing vehicle to cater for all riders at the events.
Pirelli were attracted to the series for its professional organisation, good
crowds and the large volume of competitors through clubman, youth and elite

Pirelli staff will be on hand at every round to fit tyres and advise
competitors on fitment, type and pressures, providing a truly unique race
service. The brand is also very interested in getting rider feedback, which
will ultimately help future product development.

A wide range of Pirelli Scorpion MX tyres will be available at extremely
competitive supply and fitment prices. Pirelli have won 51 World MX titles
to date showing their dominance in this arena at the very highest level.

The Red Bull Pro National series continues to attract large numbers of
spectators, competitors and sponsors with exciting tracks and après-racing
activities that are second to none!

Steffen Baum, Product and Marketing Manager at Pirelli commented, “We are
extremely excited to be entering into this partnership with the Red Bull Pro
National Championship, an extremely professional race series which caters
for clubman to professional riders. We didn’t just want to sponsor, we need
to be there at the meetings, with a full tyre service and getting feedback
from riders on our products. This is a great opportunity and we look forward
to meeting many riders over the year!”

Matt Bates, MC Federation Chairman commented, “Having a tyre giant like
Pirelli on board for the next three years just goes to show how far this
series has come in one year. We’re delighted to be working with them on a
long term project that will not only help see the Red Bull Pro Nationals
grow in stature but also benefit our series riders with a great deal and
service on tyres at the events. Down the years Pirelli have been right there
at the sharp end in motocross, their track record and results tell you that
and it’s great to have them back and so actively involved with motocross
with us. They’re a globally recognisable brand and it’s good for everyone
involved with the sport in the UK that they are investing into the sport in
a way that gives something back to the riders. We’re looking forward to
working together for the next three years on making UK motocross a better
place to be.”
