Article By: Race Tech Development


August 2, 2011 - Grand Products Inc. and Margay Racing LLC, United States importers for Bridgestone Tires, would like to make available the Bridgestone YLA, YLB and YLC tires for the Rock Island Grand Prix. Putting up cash prizes for contingency awards, Grand Products and Margay Racing looks to make sure that Bridgestone Tires are at the front of the pack.

"The open tire classes will have a distinct advantage with the Bridgestone product line on the slick Rock Island surface," expressed Mike Tetreault, owner of Grand Products. "The YLA is softer than the standard YLB compound has been the choice of Europeans in the CIK KF1 World Championship Series in Europe."

"I have been running the YLA compound on the Stock Moto shifter kart for the past three rounds in the Florida Karting Championship Series and they are one of the fastest tires I have ever driven on," expressed multi-time champion and Ocala Gran Prix driver Nick Neri. "The margin of victory versus drivers utilizing other compounds amazed me."

The TaG, TaG Masters and Parilla Leopard classes will be following the TaG USA rules format that allows the Bridgestone YLB to be a legal tire compound. The YLB has proven to be very successful over the past six months and is the current spec tire for the World Karting Association Manufacturer's Cup, Kart Racers of America series, Florida Karting Championship Series, Great Lakes Sprint Series, Midwest Sprint Series and Badger Kart Club.
