Mondello Park and Dunlop Tyres have formed a new partnership which will see Dunlop become the title sponsor of the Masters Superbike Championship for the next three years. As part of the deal, Dunlop will become the sole supplier of Tyres to the Masters Superbike and Supersport classes and the championship will be named the Dunlop Masters Superbike Championship.
Having had a long association with Mondello Park, right back to its opening event in 1968, the circuit’s management are delighted to welcome Dunlop back for 2018, which will be the fiftieth anniversary for the County Kildare venue.
Dunlop, who also supply control tyres to the Moto2 World Championship, will not only provide tyres to the series but will also bring extensive technical support to each round. The Masters Championship will also benefit from marketing assistance from the tyre manufacturer as well as an extensive prize fund in the form of €5,000 worth of free tyres.
The introduction of a control tyre to the Masters came at the suggestion of the competitors who were looking to reduce costs and level the playing field for all. As part of the new deal, competitors will continue to be restricted to three tyres per event but now those tyres will be supplied to them at a cost of just £265+vat per set, a considerable discount, which will only be available to registered Masters competitors for use in Masters Championship races.
Speaking on the announcement of the Dunlop Masters sponsorship, Mondello Park General Manager Roddy Greene said, “It’s great to be able to announce this partnership with Dunlop, they have long been associated with Mondello Park and it’s great to have them back at the circuit. The Masters Superbike Championship is the premier short circuit racing series in Ireland and the addition of Dunlop as the title sponsor will strengthen this. Dominic and the team at Dunlop have a wealth of experience and we are really looking forward to working with them over the next three years. We have some really exciting development plans for the Masters and it’s great to have Dunlop on board for these exciting times.“
Dominic Clifford of Dunlop also said “We are delighted to re-establish our Partnership with Mondello Park as the Tyre supplier for the Dunlop Masters Superbike Championship. Riders will be using Dunlop race winning KR slicks and the new D213 GP Pro, road legal race tyre. It is an exciting new phase for the Championship and Dunlop is proud to be the tyre supplier.“
The Dunlop Masters Superbike Championship will take place over seven two day events between March and October 2018. Further information on plans for the championship will be released over the coming weeks.
