Desmo Due 2016 - Tyres
Desmo Due 2016 - Tyres
I am pleased to announce that the Desmo Due series will be continuing its association with Dunlop tyres as I have now signed a contract with them for the next two years.
I have also decided it is now the right time to allow the use of wet weather tyres for the first time in the series history, as such we are now signed up with Dunlop UK Ltd’s Motorsport division.
So not only will be using their well proven KR Wets we will also be using as our dry control tyre their Alpha 13 tyres, both being supplied to us at a preferential price through Dennis Trollope Racing.
A couple of months ago at the NEC bike show at least one of these tyre didn’t exist and has been produced to suit our bikes.
So for 2016 and 2017 the control tyres will be
Front 120/70R17 58H TL SX A-13 H
Rear 160/60R17 69H
Compounds to be specified by Dunlop Motorsport
Front 120/70R17 KR189
Rear 165/55R17 KR389
As Dennis Trollope Racing will need to place an order with Dunlop in plenty of time for the first meeting I need to be able to supply Dennis with a list of those registered for the series before then
From the latest information that I have
21 people have so far paid the registration fee to take part in Desmo Due in 2016 of which
16 have sent in a registration form.
Two bits of information on the Form are a must, these being ACU or SACU Race Licence number and DSC Membership number so these can be given to both Dunlop and DTR so they can check eligibility for the purchase of the Discounted Tyres which are £189.00 per set inclusive of VAT.
You will need to either pre order tyres and have them taken to the meeting and fitted to your wheels or DTR will ship them to you at the cost of £12 a set P&P, once he has stock available.
Riders below have either completed the registration process of have only done the payment side of things.
