The Organisers of the new F4 UAE Championship are pleased to announce the selection of Dunlop tyres as tyre partner for the forthcoming Championship, which starts at Yas Marina Circuit in October 2016.

As part of the arrangement with the Championship promotor, Dunlop will provide tyre fitting services at the track when official sessions take place and will provide an experienced tyre engineer who will be available to all teams for advice on their tyres and set up.

Craig Thompson, Technical Director for the Championship said: “Dunlop tyres were selected on the basis of price, quality and safety of product and the level of support service that they will provide. Dunlop, in partnership with their local distributor Easa Al Gurg, has supported grass roots motorsports in the UAE for a number of years now and it is good to see that their past record has been rewarded with a new Championship partnership.”

Dunlop Motorsports regional representative Chris Keogh said: “Dunlop is most proud to be the tyre partner to this new Championship which looks very interesting and we are looking forward to it. Our partners here, Easa Saleh Al Gurg, will again provide support on a local basis which we are most grateful for. The new Championship will continue to strengthen the good relationship with the promotors as well as the Automobile and Touring Club of the UAE and we will continue to work very closely with all three parties so as to ensure some very safe but exciting racing. “

In order to reduce costs for the drivers competing in the Championship, tyre numbers will be limited to six slick racing tyres per round to cover the qualifying session and three 20 minute races. In the unlikely event of rain, wet tyres will be available.
