Angel GT

Brands Hatch crowd

Brands Hatch is the destination this weekend as the 2013 British Superbike season gets underway

As the MCE British Superbike Championship gets underway this weekend, Pirelli urge race fans to keep their tickets to earn a discount on this season’s ‘must have’ Sport Touring tyres- the Angel GT.

As tens of thousands of fans visit Brands Hatch for the traditional series opener, Pirelli personnel are putting the final touches to a unique World Launch for the GT range in Italy. The new Gran Turismo tyres give extremely high mileage and are particularly impressive in the wet, ideal for those who ride in all conditions to attend BSB events across the UK and even Assen, Holland.

Racegoers need simply to visit their local tyre store and hand over their 2013 MCE British Superbike Championship ticket to benefit from this £26 saving over a pair of Angel GT’s.

Jim Worland Pirelli Moto Product and Marketing Manager commented, “This is a great tie up with the MCE British Superbike Championship on a number of levels. Due to our long standing partnership with BSB, we want to give something back to the fans, so the £26 OFF is effectively giving them their money back on an advance race day ticket

The season kick-off also coincides with  the start of the World Press Launch of the Angel GT which promises a new level of Sport-Touring performance hence the ‘Gran Turismo’ terminology. New for 2013, the Angel GT gives top performance in all weather conditions and class leading mileage as verified by the authoritative German ‘Motorrad Test Center’ while retaining the Pirelli sporty DNA.

Finally we know that BSB fans love to go the distance for their race visits- which is exactly what the new Gran Turismo tyres have been designed to do!”

This offer runs from date of the first race of the 2013 MCE BSB Championship until 31st October 2013 to cover the full 12 round race season.
