This adds to Pirelli’s long list of exclusive partnership with over 50 prominent racing series, including the coveted Formula One World Championship, Australian GT, Australian Endurance Championship and Blancpain GT series.

Paul Hembery, Director, Pirelli Motorsport , said, “With Pirelli’s focus on prestige, Bathurst is an important place for us to be as one of the most famous names in motorsport. It’s also close to the population centre of Sydney, which plays an important part in the driving culture of Australia, and where we are planning to expand our presence.”

He added, “Winning last year proved the value and exposure of the Bathurst 12 Hours for us, and we look forward to capitalizing upon our engagement in 2017, equipping some of the best-known sports car manufacturers in the world on this truly spectacular circuit.”
