Marangoni is sponsor and exclusive supplier for 2013 to the "BMW Compact Cup race Championship". Now in its third year it has become one of the UK’s fastest growing championships, with over 50 cars expected to line up in 2013.
The official launch of the new partnership took place at the globally famous Autosport International 2013- Racing Car Show in Birmingham.
The race cars, all based on the BMW E36 318Ti Compact, will feature significant Marangoni branding and will race on 195/50 R15 82V Marangoni Zeta Linea Sport tyres as well as the popular Zeta Linea road spec tyre. Although Marangoni’s racing tyres have been used with great success in European motorsport, we are fairly new to UK race scene. When looking at which additional race series we’d want to become involved with, the BMW Compact Cup really stood out from the crowd. With a rapidly expanding number of entrants, and a very professional team of organisers they were a perfect match for our plans. They also understand of our wish to further promote our brand through motorsport, and they have been happy to hear our ideas and input. We are certain that the Zeta Linea Sport and the Zeta Linea road spec tyres will be popular with the drivers for their all-round performance, durability and value for money.
