Dunlop Tire Test Site Goes Live Today

From a press release issued by Dunlop:

Dunlop Daytona Tire Test web site goes live December 4

Buffalo, NY: Every year, Dunlop hosts an invitational tire test at the Daytona International Speedway in preparation for the AMA national road racing season opener. This year, the test takes place from December 9-11, and the top AMA teams will be there, many of them shaking down their new 2003 racing machines, including the new 1000cc four-cylinder Superbikes allowed under the new AMA rules.

This year, Dunlop has created a special website to give road racing fans an inside look at this closed testing session. The site goes live on December 4, 2002 with a four-part interview with Dunlop's racing guru Jim Allen, who talks about who will attend, the intricacies of tire testing at Daytona, the state of race-tire technology, and many other insights into the most comprehensive tire test in American road racing.

Throughout the event, Dunlop will post live updates on the site, beginning on December 9, including a photo gallery that will give fans an inside look at the teams, the racers and the racing machines. For your all-access pass to the Dunlop Daytona Tire Test, just aim your browser at
