Continental close to deal to become USCR's sole Prototype tire supplier RACER Magazine rumors that the new United SportsCar Racing organization is closing in on a deal that would make Continental Tire the sole provider for all of its prototypes starting in 2014.
Continental currently provides its product for Grand-Am's Daytona Prototypes and GTs, its tin-top Continental Tire Series, and the American Le Mans Series Prototype Challenge class. Current ALMS P2 tire vendors have been notified of the pending change.
Reached for comment by RACER at Indianapolis Motor Speedway for this week's Brickyard Grand Prix event, Grand-Am/USCR CEO Ed Bennett provided a statement on the status of negotiations.
“Nothing has been finalized regarding tires and the 2014 season, and no agreement has been signed with anyone,” he said. “We are working to finalize our 2014 tire strategy, but that has yet to be completed.”
An announcement regarding 2014 USCR tire developments could come as soon as Friday. More at Racer.com
