More and more companies and brands are joining the eSkootr Championship (eSC), the promising 100% electric scooter series scheduled to debut in style in 2022. On this occasion, PMT Tyres agreed a partnership to become the official tire supplier of the championship.
This was reported by eSC through an official statement, highlighting the work of the company which has been working in close collaboration during the tests carried out in the United Kingdom, Italy and France, in order to adjust details for the debut of this new electrified division of motorsport.
Both organizations have been evaluating various compounds to develop both dry and wet track compounds. The rules for using them establish that the participating teams will be able to select which type of tire to use for the races at the beginning of the weekend, considering that they will be used throughout the process.
In addition, eSkootr Championship stated that tires will be recycled and used for second life projects, reaffirming the category’s commitment to sustainability and sustainable practices. Also, a natural rubber compound has begun to be manufactured as part of its R&D program.
