This single treaded design is the result of intense development work to produce a product that not only performs in any conditions, but also allows teams and drivers to continue pushing their cars to the limit. This is in stark contrast to other championships, where teams might have a range of slick compounds for different surfaces and conditions, plus specific tyres for use in the rain. Here, one tyre suits every situation. It should make for some spectacular racing!
Another crucial consideration in the development of Goodyear’s PURE ETCR tyre was the torque and power produced by these cars. As the world’s most powerful and fastest accelerating touring cars, producing almost twice as much power as their petrol equivalents, these rear-wheel-drive machines put an immense amount of stress on their tyres.
For this reason, Goodyear’s PURE ETCR tyre has been developed to deliver ultimate grip and traction in changing and demanding conditions. The single tyre strategy also works alongside PURE ETCR’s environmentally-friendly philosophy by reducing the amount of freight needed to transport to races.
