Pirelli announced a new trackday-specific-compound Diablo Supercorsa tire, now available from authorized trackside vendors. This tire is DOT approved and will be available in seven sizes. Here’s the full size run as of the announcement:
The new rubber will feature a “TD” tire sticker, giving them an unmistakable look in the paddock.
“We’re proud to offer this Diablo Supercorsa special compound for trackday use as it’s designed to keep up with the performance and technology of today’s sportbikes,” said Oscar Solis, roadrace manager, Pirelli in a company press release. “The solution is incredibly versatile, giving riders the ability to cover both street and racetrack in a DOT-legal package. It provides riders the opportunity to competitively log laps at their local trackday and hop on the street to ride a scenic canyon route back home.”
Jake Zemke, former AMA Pro Superbike racer, adds ““I’m so excited for the new Pirelli Diablo Supercorsa compound for trackdays. I started on this project with Pirelli last year to help bring a further DOT tire to the market that is stable, safe, and with extremely high grip levels for the track. It offers amazing grip and stability in a DOT-legal package. Whether on the street or racetrack, this new Pirelli Supercorsa special compound for trackday use is the new standard for a high-performance do-it-all tire.”
The new compound is now available in the US and Canada. If you’re at Chuckwalla or MSR-Houston March 29–31, you’ll have a chance to pick up a set. The tires will be at Carolina Motorsports Park April 12–14 and COTA during Aprilia Racer Days April 16 as well.
