Fresh rubber for ARC in 2024

Following a competitive tender process, MRF Tyres was chosen as the control tyre supplier for the next three Australian Rally Championship seasons, with Hoosier to remain the supplier for 2023.

MRF supplied the control tyre for the ARC from 2017 to 2019 and brings extensive rally pedigree to its compounds.

The new tyre will be the MRF ZG3 used successfully in Europe in various championships, including round victories in the ERC where competitors have free choice of tyres.

Tony Sullens and Darrin Trigg of Pinnacle Tyres will manage the orders from ARC teams in conjunction with SA Motorsport Tyres, the Australian importers of MRF rally tyres.

Motorsport Australia General Manager of Events, Rally & Off Road, Adrian Coppin, congratulated MRF on its return to the ARC.

“We are delighted to be working with Tony, Darrin and the entire MRF Tyres team in 2024 and beyond,” said Coppin.

“This new control tyre has already proven to be a rally winner in some of the most competitive championships around the world and has made great progress since it was last in the ARC.

“The tyres provide great value for our competitors and will also hopefully allow many state competitors the opportunity to make the step up and cross-enter into the ARC in their state based national events in 2024.

“We also want to take this opportunity to say a big thank you to the entire Hoosier team who have been a brilliant supplier and partner during recent years. We look forward to working with them for the remainder of 2023 and will no doubt continue to work closely with them at other motorsport events.”

Sullens said MRF looks forward to working closely with the ARC team and competitors.

“The ARC has grown significantly in recent years and MRF Tyres is excited to be part of an ever-expanding championship,” he said.

“The MRF ZG3 is a quality tyre that has proven its credentials in rallies around the globe and we are excited to have it on show as part of the Bosch Motorsport Australia Rally Championship in 2024 and beyond.

“We will be excited to see how the tyre performs when the first round of the 2024 season gets underway early next year.”
