Avon Tyres will be the official tyre supplier to the Swedish GT Series, further boosting the brand’s motorsport involvement.
Established in 2010, the Swedish GT Series will be run by promoter Leif Lindström Promotion AB.
The six-round Swedish championship will be split into the following classes: GT3 class, GTA for newer cup cars such as Porsche, Ferrari and older GT3 cars (up to 2008), and GTB class, which welcomes SRO-approved GT4 machinery and older cup cars.
Avon Tyres will supply tyres to all three categories, as it continues to expand its motorsport activity across Europe.
The new partnership with the SRO organisation will also add an international edge to the series for the forthcoming season, as a round of the re-launched GT4 European Cup, also running on Avon, will coincide with the Anderstorp meeting of the Swedish GT Series.
Paul Coates, General Manager, Avon Tyres Motorsport, said, “We’re extremely pleased to have agreed an exclusive deal with the Swedish GT Series. The series is set to go from strength to strength this season and it’s very exciting for us to increase our GT involvement further by entering another key market for the Avon brand.”
The Swedish GT Series will be contested over six weekends at four venues across Sweden. Knutstorp will play host to the season-opener on May 3-4.
