Pirelli Tire Named the Official Tire for Challenge Club Racing
Pirelli Tire North America has been selected as the Official Tire for the Challenge Club Racing series. As the fifth largest tire manufacturer in the world, Pirelli delivers quality product performance and technology that will bring superior performance to the Challenge Club Racing series.

As one of the leading producers of high performance racing tires in North America, Pirelli's partnership with Challenge Club Racing for its 2013 season guarantees professionalism and competitiveness. Joining with Pirelli will allow Ferrari owners the opportunity to compete on some of the world's greatest racetracks at an elite level with a product that has been designed and manufactured by Pirelli specifically for the vehicles in the series.

"We are pleased to begin this relationship with Challenge Club Racing as it is a fitting addition to our portfolio of premium racing programs in North America and a natural extension of engaging with Ferrari enthusiasts", said Rafael Navarro, Vice President of Communications, Media Relations and Motorsports. "Pirelli is involved in over 250 diverse motorsport series around the world, supplying over 720,000 tires for all of these motorsport activities this year. Supplying Challenge Club Racing demonstrates our commitment to growth and emphasizes that we are the tire manufacturer that is most involved in motorsport at both national and international levels all over the world."

Challenge Club Racing is a series built from one of the largest groups of Ferrari racing privateers in the United Sates. Ferrari owners are given the opportunity to enjoy the best tracks while sharing both competition and social aspects of the series with fellow Ferrari owners.

"Partnering with Pirelli gives our drivers the ability to race at the highest level," said John Houghtaling, President and Founder of Challenge Club Racing. "Pirelli is internationally recognized and their involvement with Challenge Club Racing will showcase our series to a diverse audience of racing enthusiasts."
