Many have thought that the time was therefore ripe to see the giant tire, the sole supplier of tires for F1 and Superbike, get on track even in karting.
To understand more, TKart interviewed exclusively absolute Mario Isola, Pirelli or the responsible for all matters related to Motorsport.
Island, with the brand went from karting and passionate, he did not deny that karting is an extremely interesting field for the company, but also explained that, for the moment, have not been made concrete steps towards an effective landing in this area.
Even so, they are the words of the Racing Manager, a name like Pirelli must point to the top, and thus decide whether to engage in karting, will do so with a high quality product for all major categories. It is a job that requires commitment, resources and, therefore, more time.
Island suggests that some reasoning was however done, it is considering a landing in karting totally “on their own”, both leaning, eventually, to a manufacturer already involved in the industry. But, again, it’s simple reasoning that concrete steps are not followed. So, to sum up, the interest is there, in the company talked about for some time, but … still have to wait.
