Pirelli’s new high performance historic rally tyre, the P7 Corsa Classic, has made its competition debut in March on the Rally de Espana Historico with two-time World Rally Champion Carlos Sainz.
This new tyre has been developed for historic rallying, combining a classic design with cutting edge technology.
The new P7 carries over the style of the original tyre from the end of the 1970s and is characterised by a dual road and competition tread pattern. Optimal grip is ensured thanks to a choice of 3 compounds – D3 for dry, D5 mixed conditions and W5 for wet conditions.
The P7 Corsa Classic has an asymmetric tread pattern that unites a semi-slick dry pattern with a treaded wet pattern. The external semi-slick pattern ensures the best possible lateral grip on dry surfaces, while the blocks on the internal part of the tyre help to evacuate water from the contact patch.
This tyre adds to the range of Avon CR6ZZ and Michelin TB15 tyres to give a good choice of competition tyres for Classic cars.
