This new association will see Pirelli becoming the official tire and presenting partner of CTCC. This announcement caps off an incredible year for CTCC as we saw sustained growth in the series.

“This is a wonderful development that will support our growth. With a worldwide renowned brand, Pirelli is an obvious choice when it comes to racing tires and we are happy and proud to partner with them“, stated John Bondar, President and owner of CTCC. “Our drivers reported solid results from early testing and they are anxious for the new season to begin. We are looking forward to working with the whole Pirelli team.”

CTCC is proudly Canadian owned and operated and is one of the longest-running professional sports car series in Canada. CTCC features race cars based on their original showroom versions in three different categories; Touring Class, Super Touring Class and Grand Touring Class. Over two hundred drivers have raced with CTCC over its first ten years and the championship has helped to further the career of over thirty drivers. Based on early interest from new drivers and teams, 2017 is shaping up to be one of the best seasons of the series.

“It is very exciting for Pirelli to be part of the CTCC Championship. This new partnership shows our commitment to the growth of the commercial motorsport business in North America, and Canada in particular” added Pirelli’s NAFTA Motorsport Manager Orazio Mastracchio. “Aligning championships across the border provides a unique experience that is important to us and it also allows drivers to take part in multiple championships using the same P Zero racing product.”

CTCC presented by Pirelli will kick off its 11th season in May and wrap up by October 2017. The official schedule is under development and will be released soon.
