Unleash the power of your vehicle with premium Bridgestone Potenza Race tyres. Enjoy outstanding dry handling on the track, the best dry braking, and rapid acceleration when the lights turn green.
Optimised contact patch To guarantee homogenous pressure distribution and controlability. You can have all the power in the world, but if you can’t optimise the contact point with the track surface you are wasting energy and losing valuable time. Our Potenza tyres are designed to reduce hot spots and optimise efficiency by equalising the pressure over the contact point.
Hybrid crown reinforcement For stabilised performance at maximum speeds. All tyres are designed to flex, but how they flex under extreme loads – i.e. top speeds, whether in a straight line or around corners – must be an integral part of the design solution. Our hybrid crown reinforcement stabilises the tyre envelope at speed.
Asymmetric tread pattern and wall angles to maximise cornering power and braking potential. The asymmetric tread pattern and wall angles increase lateral stiffness to maximise lateral stability and reduce block deformation. For a consistent perfomance until the last lap.
Sporty profile shape To maximise stability and braking potential. A tyre needs to do many things including transmitting power and applying braking forces. Friction is key, as only the parts of the tyre in contact with the road can deliver. With its extra width and higher contact footprint, the Potenza race tyres optimise dry braking performance.
High resistance compound Against abrasion for longer track endurance. Semi-slick tyres are designed to be pushed to the limit, but that’s no reason they shouldn’t last. It’s why Potenza race tyres are made with a high resistance compound that includes reinforced silica and a mix of resins, and include nano-scale reinforcement to ensure you can enjoy outstanding track longevity.
The European Union has introduced the EU Tyre Label by Regulation (No. 1222/2009) identically and bindingly for all EU member states. It applies to passenger car tyres, light commercial vehicle tyres and heavy commercial vehicle tyres produced after 01.07.2012.
Three different areas are tested: rolling resistance, wet grip and the rolling noise the tyre makes on the road.
The following are not affected by the EU Tyre Label: retreaded tyres, professional off-road tyres, racing tyres, tyres with additional devices to improve traction such as spiked tyres, T-type emergency tyres, special tyres for fitting to vehicles first registered before 1 October 1990, tyres with a maximum authorised speed of 80 km/h, tyres for rims with a nominal diameter of 254 mm or less or 635 mm or more.
With this regulation, the European Union is pursuing the goal of promoting economic and ecological efficiency in road traffic as well as increasing road safety on the one hand, and on the other hand, granting consumers more product transparency and at the same time serving as an active decision-making aid.
Already during the incorporation, experts criticise the fact that the EU Tyre Label unfortunately only shows a few product characteristics. Apart from rolling resistance, wet grip and rolling noise, which are the main focus of EU tyre labelling, tyres have much more important and safety-relevant product characteristics, such as aquaplaning properties, driving stability, service life, braking properties on dry and wet roads, behaviour in wintry conditions, etc.
Tyre manufacturers point out that test results from various institutions and journals remain an important information medium for the end consumer. These tests usually focus on further safety-relevant product characteristics besides the EU standard qualifications for tyre labelling, which are always important for the final customer.
