Hillclimb/Sprint Competition Tyres

Message from Craig Powers which will be of interest to any member invlved in sprinting or hillclimbing.


You will recall that Avon Tyres Melksham plant closed in Dec 2023 after the parent company Cooper Tires / Goodyear restructured the business. This left the hillclimb / sprint sector without many types of competition tyre. Cars, bikes, sidecars were all affected.

BMTR (Birmingham) were stockpiling hillclimb / sprint tyres in late 2023 to take them through 2024.

I’m told that a management buyout has taken place and a new company will manufacture Avon tyres. The name is Nova Motorsport.


That’s all I know at the moment but I will try to find out more.
