Dunlop

Avesco has signed a 3 year deal with Dunlop to supply tyres for the V8Supercars which means that Bridgestone is no more.
I would like to see how DJR and Perkins go on Dunlops because they used to use them for many years.

That will be right just when Ford teams started to work it out!

Who is going to chose the compound? This time.

This is huge. Part of HRT advantage has come from their experience with the stones and the extra support they get form Bridgestone, FTR HRT I would think would be on the back foot for sure. I am shocked they did this.

If they want a real even contest then use a tyre maker who hasn't been involved in V8 Supercars. The Euro makers would love to increase their market share here.
