Pirelli introduces new tire to Blancpain GT series

Pirelli once again took up its role as sole tire supplier for the 2017 Blancpain GT Series, at Misano, Italy this weekend just past (April 1,2). A sprint round of the championship,the Misano round saw the introduction of the newly developed P Zero DHD for GT3 and the P Zero DH for GT4, as well as the WH for wet conditions.

In total Pirelli took 2000 of the P Zero DHD and 629 of the P Zero DH to Misano, to cater for a grid of 34 GT3 cars, plus 24 extra cars in GT4 and the GT sports club. The teams had six new sets of P Zero DHD available for the weekend, with four sets for qualifying and the race. Every set of P Zero DHD will run for around 23-25 laps per stint, stopping at around the half-hour mark in each race for a driver and tire change.

"Misano is a particularly aggressive circuit for tires: there are some big kerbs and plenty of corners, which means constant braking and acceleration combined with high lateral load," explained Matteo Braga, circuit activity manager. "The nature of the sprint format means that teams need to unlock the performance of the compound straight away, so the practice sessions will be particularly important."
