Track day at Sepang with Bridgestone and the new Potenza RE-11S tyres


Attached Image Bridgestone recently launched its new Potenza RE-11S Type RH motorsport racing tyre, and we accompanied them up to Sepang International Circuit to see the new tyres being put through its paces by sponsored driver Mohhamed Yusoff at a Traction Circle Club track day.

Developed from Bridgestone's motorsport technologies, including the brand's Formula One expertise, the Potenza RE-11S is designed to perform under extreme conditions and offers high-speed performance on the racing circuit.

As official tyre sponsor for Mr. Yusoff, Bridgestone's technicians will accompany him to all track days to assist him with tyre matters. On Saturday, the 11th of June, Mr. Yusoff took his Mitsubishi Evo onto the Sepang track to test the new tyres and see how they hold up.
