Pirelli all set for ASBK return to Barbagallo 22-24 May

Pirelli make compounds available for all riders.

Link International press release:

Following on from winning results for Pirelli riders at round 2 of the Australian Superbike Championship at Morgan Park, Pirelli makes full range of Diablo Superbike and Diablo Supercorsa compounds available for all riders at ASBK round 3 in Western Australia.

May 8, 2015 – Link International and Pirelli are pleased to advise that tyres can now be ordered from Official Western Australia Pirelli Agent GP Wholesale, for the upcoming round of the Australian Superbike Championship (ASBK) as it heads to round 3 at Barbagallo Raceway in Western Australia from 22-24 May.

Pirelli riders enjoyed good success at Morgan Park, with a new lap record, the Pirelli fastest lap award and both race wins in the Superbike class being the undoubted highlight of the round just gone for Privateer Mike Jones of Cube Racing. The addition of further podium results in Superbike, Supersport and a round win in the production class to Pirelli riders sees them as the tyres of choice for many riders contesting this year’s ASBK championship.

With the series now heading to Western Australia and the different track conditions of this famous circuit, Pirelli makes available again the full range Diablo Superbike and Diablo Supercorsa in SC1 and SC2 front, and SC0, SC1 and SC2 rears to all riders who choose to race on Pirelli tyres. In the production class, Diablo Rosso II HR leads the way for riders in this development class so far this season, as the homologated Pirelli tyre.

Don Nicholas Pirelli Moto Product Manager, Link International. “It is fantastic to see the ASBK return to Western Australia and the Barbagello circuit, helping make this a truly national road racing series for Australian riders. For Pirelli we see some different tyre compound opportunities that could be used to get the best from the more aggressive Barbagallo track surface. We are fortunate that there is a strong local WA championship run by the MCRCWA where Pirelli riders are often winning races in each class, so I am interested to see how many local WA Pirelli riders are at the pointy end of results come race weekend. As usual our technicians will be on hand for advice and support to get the best results we can. We wish all riders successful racing at round 3 of the ASBK.”
