Formula 1 NYC Meetup Message Board › Pirelli Tire Challenge
New York, NY
Hello F1 Fans,
The message below is passed on the behalf of our friends at Pirelli.
For those of you who might be interested in Formula 1, Pirelli has created a website where you can enter to win prizes as well as the opportunity the win tickets to watch a race (this page can also be found in Facebook). If you are interested please visit the website: www.pirelligpchallenge.com and register to play the game.
Also, the description below of the types of compounds for the races might be useful to play the game:
In order to tell the six tires apart, each will carry its own distinct coloring on the Pirelli and P Zero logos affixed to the sidewall. Under the sport's rules, only two compounds of slick tire - known as the prime and the option - will be used for each race. In addition to this, intermediate and wet tires can be fitted if it rains.
The colors reflect the unique personality of each tire, enabling viewers to tell instantly not only which is the prime and the option tire, but also exactly which type of tire is fitted to each car.
The six colors are as follows:
Wet - orange
Intermediate - light blue
Supersoft - red
Soft - yellow
Medium - white
Hard - silver
