There are many macas that have been working to evolve their models and adapt to any type of situation. Sometimes we think that it is unthinkable to take the competition to the road, but there are different firms that have made the prototypes of daily use have the same characteristics. Goodyear knows what you’re doingn and for more than thirty years they have known that their road tires are practically perfect. The first tyre of the Goodyear Eagle F1 family came on the market at the time when they dominated and achieved more than 360 victories.
Being faithful to the world of automotive and motorsport, the firm has managed to generate a family of unique tires. To do this, they have been working in an extensive test factory where innovations and technologies have always been at the forefront. At present, Goodyear actively participates in touring car and endurance racing, and there is close collaboration between the teams that develop road and racing tyres. Many of the building elements and composites are created in goodyear’s same innovation and manufacturing centers.
Ben Crawley, Director of Motorsport EMEA at Goodyear commented: “The driver using the Eagle F1 Asymmetric 6 expects it to be prepared for anything. We apply the learnings of the competition to the development of compounds of street cars, but often our racing team also learns from our road tyre development partners.”
Now, the new challenge of Goodyear is in the electric automotive categories, where it supplies tyres in the FIA WTCR, FIA ETCR among others. The firm knows that it is somewhat different what is requested for a very variable range of tires, which is optimal for competing in both wet and dry. All this has made them move it in the manufacture of the most powerful tires, making the high torque and weight of the models not a problem to develop the tires, as is the case of the Goodyear Eagle F1 Asymetric 6.
