Dunlop 2018 Tyre Facts - Revolution Evolution – Tyres That Keep On Developing

Last year saw the introduction of the 2017 LMP2 regulations and great success from teams that chose to compete on Dunlop tyres. Winning every race in the FIA World Endurance Championship and European Le Mans Series hasn’t halted development of the tyres. Competition and aero package upgrades have brought higher speeds and loads and Dunlop never stops improving.

Dunlop’s goal for the 2018 LMP2 tyres:

  • Increased temperature operating windows
  • Extended consistency
  • Improved performance
  • Better feel and feedback for the drivers

 

All five tyres have been redesigned with new specifications providing:

  • Better balanced tyre package
  • Increased durability to provide more consistency throughout multiple stints
  • Extended tyre operating windows bringing more flexibility in tyre strategies
  • Accelerated warm-up to assist with race starts and safety car periods
