Bridgestone Battlax BT-39SS will once again be the spec-tire for all the hotly contested underbone classes. As proven in last year’s event, the one tire rule ensured equality among participants as they were all on the same tire. Furthermore, the cost of participation by the participants was brought down due to Bridgestone’s support to the racers.

The Bridgestone Battlax BT-39SS tire proved its exceptional grip, performance and durability when it was used by all the teams who competed in the IRGP1 and IRGP2. It was developed for production racing in the underbone class in 2007 and it since its debut in the IRGP it now regularly used by most local racers. For IRGP3,expect the lap record to go down as Bridgestone has decide to supply a full race rear tire for the Gulf Oil Pride 4T Masters class.
