Join racers like two-time defending Daytona 200 winner Brandon Paasch as a part of the #pirellination road racing community.

ROME, Ga. (April 1, 2022) – Pirelli Tire North America is pleased to announce the launch of its new #pirellination road race community for the 2022 racing season. As the official tire of the MOTUL FIM World Superbike Championship, Pirelli and its DIABLO™ Superbike lineup is the go-to tire by racers around the world. Pirelli remains dedicated to the grassroots part of the sport, continuing with its motto “we sell what we race, we race what we sell”, and all riders may purchase the same race compound tires found on the bikes of their favorite professional riders and World Champions like Jonathan Rea and Toprak Razgatlioglu.

The road race community program will ensure racers are the first to know about the latest brand news, be notified of Pirelli’s newest products, receive updates on national marketing opportunities within the brand, and be given access to technical advice and service at select races. Pirelli’s team will also be identifying and selecting several candidates who will have the opportunity to purchase race compound tires at preferred pricing and provided with Pirelli team-branded gear.

Residents of the United States and Canada are eligible for the program.

“Pirelli is extremely excited about building up its racer community with the all-new #PirelliNation program,” said Oscar Solis, road race manager, Pirelli. “Everything we do from the very top as a brand, including product development with World and National Championship racers, trickles down to the local, club level racer. Our goal remains to provide the everyday rider and racer with access to the latest technology and the very best products available on the market. With this new community, it will allow us to strengthen our bond with those racers, educate them on our products, and provide them with the knowledge and ingredients needed to succeed.”

Pirelli’s high-performance DIABLO Superbike lineup offers several different compounds including SC1, SC2, and SC3 on the front and SCX, SC0, SC1, SC2, and SC3 on the rear.

JC Camacho Sets Absolute Motorcycle Track Record with Pirelli Tires at MSR Cresson

Camacho’s Ninja ZX-10R Relies on the Performance of Pirelli’s DIABLO Superbike 125/70R17 SC1 Front and 200/65R17 SC0 Rear

ROME, Ga. (September 9, 2021) – Pirelli Tire North America captured the brand’s fifth absolute motorcycle track record of the 2021 racing season as JC Camacho put in an impressive performance at MSR in Cresson, Texas. The new lap record was set aboard a 2019 Kawasaki Ninja® ZX™-10R motorcycle-equipped with Pirelli DIABLO Superbike slicks.

“It was a solid weekend at MSR,” said Camacho. “I’ve been able to keep building on my platform and have been finding more confidence in my setup each day I take to the track. The Pirelli tires have been phenomenal in putting the power to the ground and giving the longevity needed to run the entire race distance with extremely consistent lap times. I can’t wait to see what we do when we return to Houston! A big thank you to P1 / South Central Race Center for keeping me loaded up with Pirelli’s and for providing superb trackside support.”

Camacho’s new lap record of 1:13.834 in the Central Motorcycle Roadracing Association Championship was set in the Formula 1 Expert class. A DIABLO Superbike SC1 in 125/70R17 was used on the front of his ZX-10R motorcycle, while a DIABLO Superbike SC0 in 200/65R17 sizing was used on the rear.

“JC is a new rider for us this year,” said Oscar Solis, Senior Racing Manager, Pirelli. “We are very impressed with his results and dedication to excel at the top in racing and would like to congratulate him on this achievement!”

Camacho is now the fourth different Pirelli rider to earn an absolute motorcycle track record in 2021. Pirelli continues to remain the motorcycle tire of choice for North American riders looking to reach the top step of the podium and log fast laps at events and series that do not have a spec tire rule. Reward prizes are offered to riders who set a new motorcycle track record while using Pirelli race compound tires.
