Bridgestone's color markings for 2015 MotoGP season
Bridgestone, the automobile tyre maker, has introduced two new marking for its 2015 MotoGP tyres this season. The 2015 MotoGP season will commence next week in Qatar.

Earlier, the company was the only supplier for the MotoGP races, however, last year, the tyre maker withdrew as the only tyre supplier. It is said that Michelin will take over as an exclusive tyre supplier for the MotoGP races from 2016.

In 2014, the tyre maker introduced four colored markings:
· Green for extra soft tyres
· White for soft tyres
· Black for medium tyres
· Red for hard tyres

For this season, Bridgestone has introduced a new extra-hard compound rear slick in yellow color, which will debut in Argentina. There is also another light blue marking for the asymmetric front slick.

During the 2015 MotoGP season, the SUcati, Suzuki and Aprilia riders will be allocated rear tyres one grade softer for example; in the factory class if the Honda and Yamaha riders are allocated hard and medium tyres for the rear, the open class rider will get soft and medium tyres. The front tyre for all the riders will remain the same.

Moreover, like last year, the riders will also be offered with two options of wet tyres at each round – the plain, black tyre hard tyre and a white soft tyre.

“The coloured tyre marking scheme we implemented last year was designed to make it easier for fans to see which tyre options we deliver at each race, and we’ve listened to the feedback from both MotoGP fans and media around the world to improve this system for this year,” said Bridgestone Motorsport manager Hiroshi Yamada.
“This revised tyre marking system not only reflects Bridgestone’s commitment to continue developing new tyres through the 2015 MotoGP season by offering more options to riders, but also helps increase the appeal of the sport by helping fans more clearly understand the importance of tyre strategy during the race weekend.”
