Pirelli investigating Diablo Supercorsa BSB tyre failures
 
Pirelli has given assurances it will fully investigate the reasons behind a whole host of tyre delaminations in the Superstock and Supersport classes over the Silverstone Bennetts British Superbike weekend.

The firm’s representatives were inundated with complaints from angry team bosses and riders after tyres fell to pieces at the Northamptonshire circuit.

“Just a few hours after the race, the elements we have available are obviously not enough to allow us to provide a structured and complete explanation of what happened to some tyres during the BSB weekend at Silverstone,” said a Pirelli statement.

“It is obviously of primary interest to us to understand what caused this damage to the tyres, so over the coming hours and days we will be conducting the appropriate in depth investigations in our laboratories.”

Any Clubman rider worth his salt would just turn the tyre round and use it again.

For the rest of the season...
