Most Regional Extreme Classes Race on Dunlop Direzza

Dunlop’s Direzza semi slick race tyre is the tyre of choice across most of South Africa's regional circuit racing series and this weekend’s Regional Extreme Festival season opener at Zwartkops is more proof why. The Pabar VW Challenge and Car Care Clinic Superhatch will race exclusively on Dunlop Direzza Race Semi Slicks, while Direzzas are also the tyre of choice in the Lotus Challenge and other series. Direzza is also exclusive to the national Compcare Polo Cup and Cape Alert Engine Parts GTi Challenge, among others.

The Dunlop Direzza DZ03G H1 is a List 1C track and competition tyre that is successfully used in many forms of motorsport including, race, sprint, hillclimb and track days across the world. As it is in VW Challenge, Superhatch and 111s at Zwartkops this weekend, it is the control tyre in various South African championships too. Which means that all competitors must use that tyre to race in those series. And for good reason too. Direzza Racing is the ideal tyre for track days, circuit, club racing, autocross, race schools and so much more.

Highly successful in many forms of Motorsport, Dunlop Direzza Racing tyres provides excellent stability and predictable grip. Dunlop Direzzas feature a race tyre construction with a reduced tread depth and a high stability pattern along with a tread compound to ensure precise control, surefooted braking and predictable grip. The DZ03G is also available in a wide range of sizes and compounds, ensuring the right tyre for very condition and vehicle. Most local regional classes run 15 inch rubber, while Polo Cup races on 17” Direzzas.

Dunlop Direzzas are also hardy and offer a very good competition life, are relatively inexpensive and like at the National Extreme Festival, this weekend’s Zwartkops Regional Festival racers will as usual benefit full Dunlop Racing Support courtesy of ATS Motorsport throughout the weekend. ATS Motorsport supplies Dunlop Direzza Racing rubber to the local market.

Dunlop utilises the same technology, research, development and key learnings from its global motorsport programs in manufacturing the tyres you drive on every day. That's why Dunlop's motorsport heritage, innovation, performance, safety and durability give you the confidence and an advantage on the road.
